I saw something in the sky last night. It didn’t belong there but it moved too quickly through my field of vision and out of sight.
There were no reports today, no posts on Facebook or Twitter saying that anyone saw anything. The paranoid in me says it’s a cover up and it’s only a matter of time before the MiB come for me. The rational person says what I saw was an hallucination. Both are possible but the latter is far more likely.
It was a saucer, flat and incredibly bright. Floating over the road at the intersection three blocks away, it seemed to be waiting for me to see it. As though it said, “You’re right. We know you know but no one will ever believe you. Make your choice. Be the one who shouts from the rooftops, the one who no one believes. Or be the one who knows, who can come backstage once in a while to see more. Your choice.”
What pulled me out of the house, out of a sound sleep to walk down to the parkway and look west? Them? That thing?
I’ve made my choice. I know who I am. Do you?
