Friday Fictioneer: Aliens

PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

“I don’t want to go.”

“Why not?”

“Aliens.”

“You have too much imagination.”

“Those round thingies will beam me up. Aliens will eat me.”

“Just you? Not me.”

“You’re too gristly.”

“I know about aliens.”

“You do.”

“That’s why I dressed you in a blue hoodie. They can’t see blue.”

“They can’t?”

“They can’t. Pull the hoodie over your head and looked down and they’ll never see you.”

“Okay. Look I found a quarter.” Johnny pulled his hoodie back, lifted his head to show her.

“Well let’s see if we can’t find something to spend that quarter on,” Mommy said.
