FFfAW #41: Are you an alien?

Photo by: Etol Bagam of Creative Busyness

“Dr Seth! Look at what I’d discovered during my hike yesterday!” said Keane, the research assistance. He handed Dr Seth a photo of four aliens that he took at the woods.

Dr Seth grinned. He winked, and the time froze, so did Keane.

“Welcome to Earth my lovely brothers, Saeh, Souh, Sanh and Senh! I’ve waited a hundred years for you!” said Dr Seth.

The aliens popped out of the pictures and transformed themselves into a human, just like Dr Seth. They talked among themselves in their alien language. Within minutes, they’d mastered the human language.

“Wait for me outside the lab.” Dr Seth told his brothers.

Dr Seth winked again. The time continued from where it’d stopped. He returned the photo to Keane. Keane looked at the photo, stunned.

“Where did the aliens in the photo go?”

“What alien? There isn’t any alien! You must be hallucinating! Here, complete these test and write a report for me by tomorrow.”

Dr Seth joined his brothers outside the lab and teleported themselves to the city.

  1. Hahaha! Love this! You have a wonderful imagination in creating this story. Dr. Seth is really an alien and now he’s trying to convince Keane he has mental problems. I loved how they stepped out of the photo and became humans and then learned human language in a very short time.
