…breaking news …. Ancient Alien Theory … proven at last! More news to follow.”
POPULAR TELEVISION SERIES – We regret to inform you that this will be the final “Ancient Aliens” episode. It is with much sorrow that we play for you the final filming of this show.
(View shown in background is that of newly discovered ancient ruins.)
The narrator’s voice begins, as persuasive as always. “But perhaps humans didn’t construct these ancient walls. What if celestial beings from outer space were, in fact … responsible.”
Giorgio Tsoukalos, popular host of the television series “In Search of Aliens” is shown bent over digging into the ruins of this new archaeological find. “This is simply amazing. What if we’ve finally uncovered the evidence of ancient alien involvement, at last. Erich, I am so excited.”
“It is as I always suggested,” said Erich von Daniken, author of the widely acclaimed, worldwide best selling book Chariots of the Gods. “There can now be no question. We have been visited by aliens. Here is indisputable proof.”
A pause in the conversation and then …
,,,Um Erich, I’m stuck here … I mean actually physically (his voice raises) … STUCK HERE. The rocks are sticking to me and those monoliths are edging closer and you, well you look as if you’re sinking into the top of the stone wall.”
“This is possible”, Erich replied, continuing to sink. “I always knew they had a method of melting the rock. This is so fascinating.”
“Erich, could we discuss these theories after we extricate ourselves, I’m getting a little worried here.”
“It is not to worry Giorgio, my friend.” Erich looks encouragingly at his long time associate before continuing:
“They must have had a way to remove themselves from the rock or we would be finding their own bones … no wait … here are some bones now. And look at the shape of the skull, it appears to be elongated. And here’s another bedded down even deeper into the wall. Even more proof! Eric’s final words are ones of jubilation, “ … at last … I am so happy to be vindicated.”
Giorgio’s final words bearly understood, “and I am so dead!”
Well this story was just a ton of fun to write (based on the photograph by Alastair Forbes, host of Sunday Photo Fiction) and much longer than it should have been. Just couldn’t help myself. For more great stories or to add one yourself, visit Alastair at Sunday Photo Fiction
Hope your week has started off well for you,

Ha! I’d love to see that show. I must admit that Ancient aliens is one of my guilty pleasures. it’s probably a load of old nonsense but I could watch it all day!
Thanks Ally and guess what? me too. One of my favorite shows, watching for all the same reasons you do, too cool! 🙂
These scientists are not of this world are they, at least Erich (n0t Eric!). Great little story.
Thank you Patrick. No possibly they’re not!
This is superbly imagined and crafted.
Thanks. I kinda thought it was a hoot, at least it was fun in it’s creation! 🙂
AnElephantCant deny the evidence
This tale gives him such a buzz
It is not unexpected
But just what he suspected
Lovely Penny is much smarter than the rest of us
AnElephant applauds your ability to see what no one else does.
Just couldn’t help myself. Really the stone and the figures seemed to lend themselves to the subject matter. And you are much too kind in your praise but I thank you very much! 🙂 xo
I enjoyed your story and that you named real alien theorists! 🙂
Thanks Barb. This one was a lot of fun to play with! 🙂
Al posted a story on Mondays Finish the Story that uses names, tweeked with, that you might enjoy! 🙂
Thanks Barb, I read his story, it was very clever of him and an enjoyable read! Congratulations on your new endeavor! 🙂
Thank you Penny! Loved your story! 🙂 Now what would those fellows say in real life if the story you wove happened to them? 🙂 Do you think the fellow with the upright hair, maybe Robert LaFollette reincarnated, would say about his plight?
That is fantastic. That was not the way I expected it to end. It had me actually laughing out loud. Love it 😀
Thanks Alastair, that was my goal! Laughing out loud, that is! 😀
Well it worked. “And I’m so dead” lol
Yeah, go to bed it’s the middle of the night over there!
Yeah, I know. Just need to finish a couple of comments. Kim (Silently Heard Once) has written a poem based on one of my photos, so I am about to read that 🙂
