*Click* -Clack- *Click* -Clack- The sound of footsteps nears.
A meteor flies overhead Maple Street. Shortly after, the power goes out, and cars don't turn on. Tommy, a young teen, says the aliens did this. And they don't want them to leave.
You just shot a man! You shot him dead!
Everyone turns on each other. Pointing fingers and finding every little mystery about their neighbors. Les Goodman had his car start up without anyone in it. Now he's being blamed for being a monster. Really, he suffers from insomnia.
*Screaming fills the air.*
Everyone hears footsteps. Don grabs his shotgun. Steve says it isn't necessary. But Charlie grabs he gun from steve and shoots it at the approaching figure out of fear. Afterwards, the street walks towards the figure's body. There lays, Pete Van Horn. Who went over to the next street to see if their lights went out as well.
Pete now lays dead on the ground. Blood around his corpse. Steve yells at Charlie for being irrational about the figure.
You should've waited to see who it was before opening fire!
Everyone's lights in their houses start going crazy. Everyone points fingers at each other. It ends up with a man and a revolver shooting and people screaming and running into their homes, terrified for their lives.
The reason this event happened was because of aliens who were experimenting with all the Maple Streets. They say every street has only small variations, but otherwise they are the exact same. Aliens aren't the monsters, the human's fears were.
