‘Is it true it was aliens from Venus that designed this place?’ asked Sam, looking at the photograph of the strange building.
‘So the guy who built it said,’ answered Earl. ‘He also said it could time travel, so I wouldn’t trust him too much. Called them Integration structures.’
‘Well, it will do for us until the storm blows over. Remote, no questions asked and no police.’
They carried on driving through the dusty landscape. Just passed the small town of Landers Earl pulled up at the end of a half-mile queue of cars.
‘Wait here,’ he told Sam. He walked to the gate of the Integration Sanctuary Commune, where a harassed woman was turning people away. Earl pushed his way to the front.
‘What’s going on?’ he asked.
‘Sorry Earl,’ Mel said.’I know I said you could come and lie low here, but we’re full up. Seems people are looking for an alternative before the inauguration next week.’
Written for ‘What Pegman Saw’, a weekly prompt based on a view from Google Maps. The idea is to write a piece of fiction of around 150 words based on the prompt. Full details can be found HERE.
