Writing Prompt: First Contact
"Flying saucers land outside a remote countryside village and the local townspeople make first contact."
A terrifying sound shook 22-year-old Kayla from a deep sleep. She turned to her right to witness her glass of water tremble and then fall to the ground. Glass shattered in all directions. Kayla sat up, holding the blankets close to her beating heart. Screams engulfed her hearing, and they became louder and deafening. She slowly got out of bed and walked toward the window. As she peeked through her brown curtains, she watched her fellow townspeople running north toward the field. Kayla grabbed her tan trench coat, put on her sandals and ventured outside.
Kayla closed the door behind her and looked around. She watched the men in the village running toward the field. Kayla took a breath as she tucked a few strands of her curly brown hair behind her right ear. She folded her arms across her chest and followed the men. As she walked closer to the field, the air became heavy with smoke. Her eyes began to sting and she struggled to breathe. A few feet later, the smoke cleared. Kayla worked to focus her eyes on what was ahead of her. She saw shadows in front of her, all looking ahead of them. She turned her head slightly and noticed a large circular object sticking out of the ground. The image started to focus and she felt her heart pounding in her chest. Kayla moved her way through the crowd and was shocked as to what was in front of her.
The circular object appeared to be a large ship. A large window was sticking out of the ground, in front of Kayla's feet. Kayla bent down and wiped soil from the window. Just as she finished cleaning the soil from the window, lights turned on in the ship. An image of a being came into focus in the ship. Kayla looked closer and noticed the face of a creature she had never seen before. Suddenly, the eyes of the creature opened. Kayla jumped backwards, falling to the ground. The village elder rushed to her side. As he was helping her up, the vessel opened. The creature jumped out. Kayla stood up and walked toward the alien creature. The creature was about 3 feet tall, with very large eyes, a small mouth, and a very narrow body. Kayla held her hand out to the alien. The alien tilted its head inquisitively and reached its frail hand out. Kayla shivered as she made first contact with the alien visitor. The townspeople gasped and chatted amongst one another.
Kayla felt her heart beating out of her chest. She felt warmth overtake her as the alien looked deep into her eyes. The townspeople looked on, horrified as they watched Kayla disappear into the air.
She was never seen again.
