Samuel lived in a country house in Cimarron county Kansas, which he liked because it was quiet and simple. He worked at a nearby manufacturing plant all day, and then spent the rest of his day watching television. The occasional book was a good escape from his normal life, as were the walks in the countryside and the drives into nearby Dodge City. Everything was nice and calm for Samuel.
On one particular day, Samuel got bored so he went for a walk into the countryside. It was close to sunset so he didn’t want to stray too far from his house. As he stopped to stare at the beautiful starry sky, he noticed a shooting star. He wished that he had someone else to share the wonderful moment with. At that moment, the star changed course and started heading towards him. Spooked by this sudden change of what he thought was probably space junk turned out to be some sort of flying object. Samuel started to run towards his house in hope that he could get there before the shooting star could get to him. His attempt proved futile, because the shooting star was traveling towards him much faster than he could ever hope to travel.
Within a few minutes of the initial change of direction, Samuel found himself with a shooting star above him. He paused to see if the star had stopped moving above him. Indeed it had, so he started back to running to his house again. Close to his front porch, he was hoping that he was home free of whatever was following him. Just before he reached the porch a sudden light appeared, engulfed him, and Samuel disappeared. The date was April 6, 2075. Was it aliens? Nobody knows.
