Don’t Touch The Floor!

They hung from two nylon ropes, just feet from the ground. They’d been there almost 20 minutes. Jimmy’s arms were beginning to ache.

“Remember Jimmy, whatever happens, don’t touch the floor.”

“Not sure I can hang on Freddy. We’ve been here a long time and my arms are hurting like hell. What about if I drop down gently?”

“Do that and you’re a goner. This whole area has been activated. If yo touch the ground half a dozen lasers will immediately hone in on you. You’d be disintegrated in a second.”

“What are we going to do? I haven’t got the strength to climb back up and I can’t stay like this for much longer.”

“Just hang on a bit longer Jimmy. I’ve sent a message back to HQ, hopefully a rescue squad will be here shortly, once they’ve worked out our co-ordinates.”

“I don’t think we’ve got that long mate. Look. There’s something coming towards us.”

“Did you two boys hear me? I’ve been calling you for ages. Your tea’s ready. Now get down from those ropes and go and wash your hands.”

Jimmy looked across at Freddy,

“Freddy, how come your Mum didn’t get zapped by the laser guns.”

“Don’t know Jimmy, I’ve a suspicion she may be one of the aliens.”
