Crafty Discovery

 

“Woo…Did you see that?”

“What was that?”

“I don’t know.  But man that was freaky!”

“Tim, I think it landed in the woods, somewhere over there!”

“Let’s go check it out, Bill!”

“That thing was huge, Tim!”

“Slow down, Bill, I can’t run as fast as you!”

“ I think it landed over here somewhere!”

“I see it, over there on the other side of that field”

“What do you think that is, Tim?”

“Bill, it looks like some sort of craft!”

“It’s a UFO isn’t it, Tim?  We have finally found a UFO!”

“We better be careful, there might be aliens around.”

“It seems pretty quite, maybe no one survived the crash.”

“Bill, we better check it out quick before the Men In Black show up”

“Tim, I think that that is just a wives tale.  There’s no such thing as Men in Black!”

“There was this article in the news paper the other day.   I guess you didn’t see it now did ya Bill?”

“Tim ya know that the media just makes up those stories just to scare the public away from investigating stuff like this.”

“There ya go again, Bill, with that government conspiracy theory.  When are ya gonna let that go and be done with it, there isn’t  any such thing as government cover ups.  Haven’t you heard of the Freedom Act?”

“Ya, Tim, I heard of it, but I don’t believe it.  They still black out all the stuff they don’t want you to know about in the files.  Calls it some sort of Security thing.”

“Bill, do you think this thing has a door?”

“Why are ya looking for a door, Tim?  Your not really look in to get in side are ya?”

“Ya Bill, what cha think I was look in for?  A window?”

“Tim, what will ya do if something is on board that thing and it comes out and eats us?”

“Ha, we can take em!  I know we can”

“There’s this button here, Tim, maybe this opens the door?”

“Wow…That button really worked, and I didn’t even hear that door slide open!”

“Tim, maybe we should wait out here to make sure there is nothing on board.”

“Bill, if there was anything on board, it would have been out here by now, and if it was going to kill us, we’d be dead by now”

“Tim, I have a bad feeling about following you in here, but I just can’t let ya go in alone”

“Bill, you just want to see the inside just as bad as I do!”

“It’s dark and creepy in here, Tim!  I wonder if there is any light switches?”

“Woo…dude!  What was that?  Is that one of those creatures?”

“I’m not liking this, Tim, lets get out of here before it is too late!”

“Hah…I think I found something…oh good light…now we can see where we are!”

“Man, Tim, ya better be careful about pushing buttons, when ya don’t know what they’ll do!”

“Relax Man, nothing is gonna happen.”

“I don’t know, Tim, that thing don’t look like I would want to tangle with it should it come too.”

“Bill, I don’t think that thing is alive, don’t ya know the aliens can’t breath our air.  Too much smog!”

“What are ya doing Tim?  You can’t just drag that thing off the ship and leave it out side, someone might find it!”

“Bill, no one is gonna find it.  We are miles away from town and there is no one around here for miles.  I’ll stick it in the bushes so no one sees it by chance alright”

“Can you drag it alright or do you need help?”

“Na, I got it.  It ain’t as heavy as it looks.  Bit light weight as a matter of fact.”

“Here, I’m coming with you!  I don’t want to be left alone on this thing.  Fraid it might take off with out you or something!  Let me get the feet.” 

“Bill, let’s put it over there under that brush, and we can pile some of these leaves on it.  There that should hide it.”

“Ya, that should work.  No one will see it now”

“I’m gonna go check that craft out some more, are ya coming?”

“Well, I’m not staying out here by my self with that creature.  What if it wakes up and comes looking for us?”

“Na, that thing is dead I tell ya!”

“Wow, look at this chamber, and it’s got awesome captain chairs.  Pretty comfortable too.  Check em out Tim”

“Oh ya.  Now I’m beginning to feel just like Captain Kurk.  We can boldly go where no Man has gone before!”

“Tim, don’t be pushing more buttons.  You don’t even know how to fly a plane.”

“I bet this thing has autopilot.”

“What the hell!!  Man, Tim, you didn’t just start this thing up did you?” 

“Man, Bill, ya really need to relax.  This thing is not even gonna take off.  It crashed and probably has damaged thrusters of something.”

“Tim, I really don’t think you should be pushing any more buttons!”

“Cool, that one lights up the dash board, now we can see everything.  Oh look they even have some sort of TV.  I wonder what channels they get”

“Hell, Man, Tim, this is freaky.  This thing’s got auto seatbelts.  I’m really not liking this.  You better not send us into outer space.” 

“Ops…I think that one just closed the door. Hmm….I think we are moving.  Seat belt time!  Cool seatbelts!  Too bad the cars don’t come with these.”

“You better turn this thing off or some thing.  I’m not ready to go to outer space.”

“I’m trying, Bill, but I can’t find the off switch!”

“Oh Great!  That one opens the viewer window.  I really don’t need to see this.  I thought you said this thing wouldn’t fly?  Great, there goes my tickets to the ball game.  Why did I even bother to buy them?”

“Woo…did you see that?  We just missed that jet by a couple of feet!  Now do you believe in UFO’s buddy?”

“This is the last thing I ever wanted to do.  Flying into outer space is just not my thing, Tim!  I hope you have a plan of turning this thing around and getting us back home.”

“Hah…look the TV works….Man he’s ugly….Do you think they speak English?”

“Tim, if we survive this, I’m gonna kill you personally!”

“Bill!  I think we got company!  The dude we left in the bush!  Umm….he’s standing behind you!”

“Shit, Tim, that’s just great!  Not only are we in outer space but now we are gonna get eaten or dissected or studied or something…Great…just great!”
