Mensa – A 100 Word Story

Yes, it’s that time again (a little late this week, but hey, Alethea’s worth it, right?).  This week’s 100 Word Story Challenge was for the theme “Mensa”.  You can read (and hear) my story below – if the player’s borked, you can use this direct link to the MP3.  The background music this week is from the track “My Strange Extremities” by #Psy-Brazil# under a CC license.

And remember to go vote for my story!

“Jonathan, you can’t talk about UFOs if you want to get into Mensa.” Abigail ignored his tight knuckles gripping the steering wheel. “You’re a smart guy, but they won’t get it.”

“You bet they won’t get it,” he snorted. “Smartest people in the world and they’re UFO deniers.” He swerved into the library parking lot. “We’re finally here.”

“Look,” Abigail said, “I’ll take you to a nice restaurant for our next date.”

As the humans walked inside, Bleargh looked up from the monitor to Zooptif. “A brain buffet!” it said, “What a romantic date!”

The saucer landed on the roof.
