An Alien Invasion
Living in a beautiful wooden house by a lake surrounded by woods, I often win village running contests. We are content. One day a five hundred foot high structure appears on the edge of the lake. Made of trees, rock and mud we can see what look like buildings high up the side, but no people. The next morning, everyone awakes with a strange spider inside their ear. They seem harmless but trying to remove one resulted in death. An alien arrives from the edifice, it asks to go to the village (we live many miles away), so I go. As we walk it tells me that they are in fact an invasion force. In the village the alien talks to people and I take a shotgun and cartridges from my family. Then it finds me again and says, 'We should return, then you can prepare.'
