Steve the powers off. I had the soup on the stove, and the stove just stopped working.
One of us could be an alien!
Was that my car?
The story takes place during the daytime on Maple Street. Steve is polishing his car when a flash of light comes from ahead. Everyone assumes it's a meteor. Then all the power goes out.
Everyone on Maple Street is confused. Tommy proceeds to tell everyone about aliens. At first they do not believe him. Then there fear starts to get to them and they start accusing each other of being an alien.
What have I done? I didn't know it was someone we knew!
Once Tommy is done taking people start looking at each other differently. Les Goodman is walking away from his car when it turns on by itself. Then everyone accuses him of being an alien.
Let their fear destroy themselves.
While all of this was going on Pete Van Horn had gone to the other street to see if there power was off. As he was walking back everyone else thought he was an alien. Because it was dark no one could see so Charlie shot him.
Oh my gosh it's an alien!
I AM GOING TO SHOOT HIM!
Charlie shot Pete. Everyone ran up to him to see who it was. They were shocked to see it was Pete! After this horrible accident, it was complete chaos. Everyone was accusing each other of being aliens.
Turns out the real monster was fear. There plan was to turn off the power make them a bit scared and watch them destroy themselves. And Maple Street was never the same again.
