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.
