Friday Fictioneers – Everything It Touches

Here’s another Friday Fictioneers story for you. Don’t forget to read all of my other stories, including Changing Tides, and one of the more talked about stories “The Beginning of Something New”. Can’t wait to hear what you have to say. Now: ON with the show.

Everything It Touches

“So, when did that thing get down here, Charlie?”

“Well, Burt, it was about 2 days ago. We all thought Noor was playing a practical joke with her streamers, when it just landed there.”

“Has it done anything we should know?”

“Not from what I can see, but I did smell lemon and ammonia coming from the houses that it touched.”

“Wait…lemons and ammonia?”

“Yeah. Anything you can think of?”

Charlie called up to his house.

“Hey, Meriel, how does the house look?”

“Clean as a whistle, Charlie. Now get up here for supper!”

Charlie shrugged as Burt looked on in wonder.

  1. Oh wow!Am not such a fan of ammonia but am ready to sacrifice my preference for a squeaky clean house and of course,I love lemons-so when can you send this creature over? ;-)Loved this ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hilarious. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s great unless the aliens suffer from allergies and sent a slave cleaner ahead to make this place suitable for their landing and takeover. You’ve got to watch these aliens. They can be sneaky. Good story. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Send the aliens to my house – I could use a little Spring Cleaning here (really a lot but I don’t want everyone in the world to know that – you understand). Really good story and neat take on the prompt!
