I was dying of a hangover, trading burgers for cash in the crowded drive-thru
when the world ended.
I wasn’t buying food; I was serving it. Hot, greasy, cheesy burger-joint
fare, with the air conditioner out and the temperature nearing a hundred
My head was pounding, my stomach was cramping, and I’d sweated
through my deodorant for the second time. Mentally smacking myself for not
calling in, I shoved a brown paper bag out the window and frowned when a
siren started screaming down the street. Then another, then another.
The woman I was trying to hand her food to let out a piercing scream that
stabbed through my throbbing head like a knife and hit the gas in the middle
of the drive-thru line. The front of her SUV slammed into the bumper of the
car in front of her before she squealed out of line.
I watched her vehicle fishtail out onto the road, her bag of food still in my
What I didn’t know then was that I should have run screaming, too.
Because the aliens had just invaded Earth.
Everything happened fast after that. Our customers disappeared, hitting
each other as they fought to get out of line and onto the road. I stared out the
open drive-thru window as a massive shadow loomed in the sky, a ship the
size of a football stadium blocked out the sun. Ships that looked like big,
glass bubbles poured out of a hole in its hull.
A co-worker grabbed my shoulder and dragged me away from the
window. I stared out at the street as one of the bubble ships zoomed over the
sidewalk and scooped up fleeing pedestrians in a huge net. The trapped
people screamed as the ship lifted them off the ground and up over the city.
Penny slammed the window shut with a curse and hauled me back into
the blazing hot kitchen.
Behind her, the other girl on shift, Taz, yelled, “What the fuck?”
Her spiky red hair looked even wilder than normal as she stared wideeyed out the window.
“Into the cooler,” Penny ordered, her expression revealing none of the
panic rising inside me. She turned her back to the window and grabbed Taz’s
arm with her other hand, hauling us away from the unbelievable scene and
into the restaurant’s walk-in refrigerator.
“This can’t be happening,” I said as Penny slammed the heavy metal door
shut behind us.
“Freaking aliens.” Taz scrubbed her hands over her crazy hair and stared
at the closed door. Her dumbstruck expression only drove home the crazy
truth. Aliens were real, and they’d come to Earth.
Suddenly, my hangover was the least of my problems.
I gripped my wimpy little paring knife and scurried toward the dumpster. The
streets were dead silent. The sirens had faded a few days ago when the power
went out and I’d never seen this town look so empty. Cars were scattered
over curbs and trash was blowing everywhere. A long streak of red stained
the centerline of the street and I tried not to look too closely.
