Exiting the highway, Carol headed north towards her acreage. She gunned the engine and the nimble sports car fairly leapt forward. She loved the throaty growl of the Lamborghini’s exhaust and mashed the pedal to the floor, working the paddle shifter furiously. The car had belonged to her father prior to his passing a couple of years ago and his estate had left her fairly wealthy. Soon after her inheritance, she’d received an honorable discharge from her rank as a major in the Air Force. Flying a fighter had been the only perk that was she loathe to give up and managed to secure a consulting position in tactical instruction almost immediately. She mused on what a great day it had been. Her training wing had been practicing intercepts and had won every engagement they were involved in, impeccably executing her instructions. She slowed up approaching a sharp curve and, exiting, stepped down on the gas again. The car didn’t respond. “What the hell?” she wondered aloud as the engine sputtered. She coasted to a stop as even the headlights began to dim. “Well damn. It was a great day.” She engaged the Bluetooth phone to call for roadside service but there was only silence from the car. Cursing again, she reached for the phone in her purse. It was dead. This time, she let fly with a string of curses that did nothing to improve the situation. “I just charged up the $#%& thing this morning! How am I out of juice?!” she swore in frustration. She knew she was less than five kilometres from home and there would be no traffic up this way at night. It was her land, after all. She got out and leaned against the car. Exasperated, she threw her head back to look at the stars above and was flooded by intensely bright, white light. Carol awoke in bed. Groaning, she made to brush the hair out of face but couldn’t move her hands. She lifted her head, trying to figure out what was going on and found herself lying not on her bed, but on a gurney in the middle of an empty room. Her arms and legs were bound by soft restraints and a strap across her torso kept her from being able to rise. Feeling strangely unruffled, she began to evaluate the situation. A door to her right slid open silently and a smallish figure walked into the room. “Well,” she remarked calmly, “That makes sense.” The new arrival would’ve come to her shoulder, had she been able to stand. Being average height herself, she guessed that the being would barely reach five feet. It was slender in stature and an even grey color. Large, black eyes dominated its hairless head and no ears were apparent. It approached her cot and, reaching out, grasped her wrist gently. Satisfied, it produced a device from an unseen pocket and waved it above her head. “I guess it’s time for a probe?” Carol almost chuckled to herself. She could scarcely believe how unconcerned she felt. She began to steel herself for what was to come as the alien withdrew the device from her view. Apparently satisfied, the alien surprised her by pocketing the device, abruptly turning and leaving the room. She barely had time to register this turn of events when the door again slid open and a taller, willowy figure entered. It made its way with a graceful stride to where Carol lay. It reached up and placed both hands near the back of its head. There was a soft hiss as the alien began to pull. Whitish-blond hair fell out around its shoulders as the alien removed a head piece, revealing the most beautiful woman Carol had ever seen. Even if her skin was chalk-white. And she had pink eyes. “Maybe she’s an albino?” Carol mused to herself, again remarking how eerily calm this whole situation seemed to be. The alien smiled and spoke, “Hello Major Danvers. I realize this is a lot to absorb so allow me to start by saying your planet is at war.” To be continued...
