A short Story.
I shook my head, blinked a coupled of times and told me to pull myself together, as I drove off, the rain seemed to be a little less severe, after a few more minuets driving, there she was again standing on the side of the road, I stopped and invited her in,
“Fancy seeing you again” I said sarcastically, lee smiled.
“Sorry about that” she said “I guess I owe you some sort of an explanation? You might not believe this but please listen”
“I’m all ears Lee”
She gave a puzzled look and said “Your ears are nice”
“No no” I said “It’s just a saying”
“Oh” she gave a cute giggle and continued her story
“Well I am not from this planet I live on Phobos the first moon of Mars, and I made the mistake of falling in love, this is forbidden on my world, so when the mood police found out I was arrested.
“Can I ask a question please” I interrupted, “What the hell are the mood police?”.
“It’s a force with the power to read your mind” Lee explained “They constantly serf the minds of the people to see if anyone is breaking the law, well anyway to get back to my story.
As I say I was arrested and the ship you saw was the ship taken me to the prison moon of Io, It’s a moon of Jupiter”
“Yes I know” I said “I took Astronomy as a subject at university”
“Well, the ship needed to take on water and this is why we stopped on Earth, but I managed to escape and that’s when you saw me in the road”
“Well I will take you to my place, you should be safe there” she squeezed my hand and smiled, “Thank you, you just don’t know how grateful I am.
“Your more than welcome sweet” I said and drove on.
