The Encounter

17 pages10 minutes


Shirl’s always been skeptical of aliens and has done tons of research on UFOs and extraterrestrials. She never suspects that she's about to have a close encounter herself. She’s been out late shooting Fourth of July fireworks with her family and is driving home when she becomes unexpectedly aroused. She finds herself in a field with the same creatures she’s been trying to research. Will they give Shirl the proof she needs to become a believer? Shirl had always been skeptical. To her, the very idea of extraterrestrials visiting Earth left a number of questions unanswered. For instance, how did they travel millions of light-years? Why did they seem so interested in examining humans? Considering the technology it would take to travel so very far, why did their methods seem so crude? Try as she might, she can’t seem to make sense of it. She had investigated hundreds of UFO claims, from simple sightings to multiple abductions with all the alleged victims corroborating each other’s story. But she had never found a single scrap of hard evidence to support those claims. True, she couldn’t disprove many of them. There were some that were obvious hoaxes, but anything that might be considered proof seemed to be lacking. Shirl had no way of knowing, but she was about to have an encounter of her own. This encounter will be very intimate in nature and will give her all of the proof she could ever want or need.
