The story takes place at 6;43 pm late summer USA Maple street, small town houses with front porches.
In this Tommy is telling the crowd that there is aliens because of what he read in his comic book. This is really what starts the whole thing.
In this the crowd is blaming Les for making the power go out because he tried to start his car and it wouldn't start. Then when Les walked away his car started so Les was getting mad because he knew he wasn't the one doing it.
In this there was someone coming and no one knew who it was and Charlie shot the riffle he ad in his hand and the crowd all ran to see who it was. After they found out that it was Pete Vanhor, they all were mad at Charlie.
In this the crowd really thought Charlie was up to something so they all grabbed rocks and started to chuck them at Charlie. Charlie had a huge gash of blood on his face as he is yelling "Stop stop it wasn't me."
They never fund out who the monsters were they actually all turned on each other they all started to throw rocks at each other because they didn't know who did it. So when the power goes out in a small town and then some peoples lights keep going o and off I guess people go crazy. The moral of this story is that words can hurt as bad as weapons.
