Run for the Hills
A cool breeze blew through the quiet community caring with it the sound of children laughing, summer cookouts and danger.
The danger was in the air and nobody knew it.Some shifted suddenly in their lawn chairs; others grabbed children and rushed inside.Cats and dogs hissed and ran after their masters.
Not far away in a dry streambed something was string.A bulge formed near the middle.A Jello like substance started oozing from the cracks in the dome.
A raccoon, which was foraging in the streambed, paused to look at the unusual structure.
He went over, stuck his paw in the ooze then licked it.
The poor creature fell down in convulsions after a minute it was still.Slowly, a limb at a time, the raccoon started twitching again.It’s beady little eyes opened and there was an alien intelligence behind them.
The raccoon stood up on his hind feet and started making strange shrill calling sounds.
There was rustling all around in the bushes.More raccoons came down to the streambed.
They gathered around the mound and started eating the strange liquid.One by one they convulsed, fell, and recovered.Each one of them had the strange intelligence behind its eyes.
The lead raccoon (the first turned) gathered up the others into a large mass.They headed off in the direction of the nearest town.
Those of the people, who had not sensed impending doom, encountered the army of furry bandits.The raccoons attacked everything in sight.They were like hungry paranahana nothing was safe.
People ran for the hills.They survived.
