Mae quickly placed her foot on the gas, revving the engine. The car made a slow getaway with some aliens still clinging to the roof. Her flat tire made the escape unsuccessful. She honked the horn, hoping the loud noise would scare them away. A few more dropped from view and howled in agony. This made her load lighter. The car picked up speed. She honked again and heard the curses from above. A couple more dropped onto the road. She heard one more move around up there. She swerved the car back and forth on the narrow road, trying to lose it. Mae let out a terrified scream as a green head suddenly blocked her windshield.
"I want to drink your blood," it said.
Mae drove a little faster, determined to lose the creature. She swerved back and forth. The dirt created a brown cloud in her wake. She gave the steering wheel one quick turn. The vehicle spun around in a vicious circle several times before rolling into the ditch.
She tried to move her body. Everything seemed to be okay. Stay calm. Someone will rescue you. The seat belt cut into her chest. The pressure made it difficult to breathe. Mae felt a trickle of blood run down her face. You'll be okay. She saw the green alien a few feet away.
Mae managed to unbuckle her seat belt. Her hand fumbled for the door. She gritted her teeth and tried to push it open. The door was jammed. Damn! Mae tasted sweat in her mouth. She pushed her entire body against the door and banged against it repeatedly. The door finally swung open and fell off its hinges. She tumbled into the high grass. Her head was swimming. Mae wiped the blood and sweat out of her eyes. Slowly, she walked away from the wreckage. Her entire body throbbed in pain. She stumbled and tried to regain her strength. There was no sign of the angry mob. Maybe they went back to town.
The dead alien lay stretched out in the ditch. Its yellow eyes stared off into space. Feeling relief about this, Mae took to the road by foot. She needed to go home. Looking behind her one last time, her eyes widened with fright. The alien that had been lying dead in the ditch was gone!
