Things for Earth continue to get scarier and scarier as the Martians take over.

Image of red-hued sunset (c) 2011, by Karla Dorman.

August 2011~

Sara Beth here.  Things continue to be very bad ...

We have been at war for six months now with the Martians and everywhere I look (on television or on the Internet), I see nothing but mass destruction.  Cities that once thrved and boomed with activity and/or life are no more: New Orleans, Louisiana, is the latest to be put on the growing number of metropolitan cities that have been obliberated by the damned Martians.  

Los Angeles, California.  Nashville, Tennessee.  Chicago, Illiinois.  Cleveland, Ohio.  New York City, New York.  Boston, Massachusetts.  Seattle, Washington.  Fairbanks, Alaska.  And now New Orleans, Louisiana.  All of these cities have been wiped off the map with nothing but rubble left to remind us that they are no longer in existance.

I don't know what we are going to do.  We are still holed up in the basment, in our makeshift shelter: me, my mom, and my dad.  Our cat, "Tinkerbelle", a chocolate seal pointed Ragdoll, was here with us, but she escaped: I can't help but wonder if she is even still alive ... 

At least "Tinkerbelle" got away ... or DID she??

I pray and hope with all my heart that she is okay.  I mean, what can one poor, defenseless twelve-pound kittycat have against a mob of angry, pissed off Martians and all their high-tech weaponry??

Not much, I'm afraid ...

Yesterday, I ventured upstairs for a quick peek outside the kitchen window from the back door.  What I saw truly terrified me.  There was this huge metal spaceship-looking object with long tenticles hanging down like thick ropes; the object then emitted this deafening noise that forced me to flee back into my hidey-hole.  My heart was pounding and sweat coarsed down my body.  I was hoping the Martians didn't see me.  I've had nothing but the woolies ever since.  I wonder if they're still Out There (along with their hover-craft or Hover-Round or whatever you want to call it ) ...

One thing's for certain:  I am not going to take that chance and find out.  I mean, I want to live, but I don't know how much longer I will be able to ...  God help us is all I can say!  I am tired of living in constant fear/worry like this!!  

~To be continued.~

Well, this is really something different from my ol' pal Karen. I missed the first three episodes, but will try to remember to get to them. Great departure that just goes to show that a really good writer can go just about anyplace his/her imagination takes them.

I often wonder how we Earthlings would react if we were invaded from beings from another world. And your story reminds me of the television series I've been watching lately -Falling Skies- in which the diabolical alien invaders are snatching up children.

Quite the tale, Karen. Well done.
