Don’t Want to Believe

100 words about alien abductions

It was the first time, and it wouldn’t be the last.

I don’t know if I’d said anything right away if I’d known. I mean, who was I going to tell? And what?

To tell the truth, I didn’t believe it had happened. I dismissed it as a Technicolor nightmare, fuelled by a recent SciFi movie binge.

The second time, I felt again as if I’d woken from a bad dream. Doubts began creeping in, though. I searched online and found others reporting suffering from identical dreams.

Tonight, we meet, brought together by a real-life Agent Mulder. He believes our theory that we’ve become lab rats for a hostile alien species.


An opening line for this week’s WP Discover Challenge? Of course I’m in.

  1. Thank you, Agent Scully! So could this be happening to any of us? Your narrative makes me wonder. Thanks to this story and to you, I traveled to the original prompt-posting and submitted a bit.

    Remembering that the truth is out there!

    1. Excellent, very happy to hear you made use of the prompt. I will read your post, but it’ll have to wait until tomorrow – it is way past my bedtime! Thank you 🙂
