Dinner At The Goth’s (Part 1)
– A Residential Lot by: findjoo –
Meanwhile back on Terra, Bella is preparing the house for the guests arrival the following evening. Leaving Mortimer to look after the kids. “So we’re having guests over tomorrow?” asked Alexander as he placed his knight in to an attacking move.
“Mmhmm.” nodded his father as he thought about his next move. He couldn’t believe how smart Alexander was, at such a young age and he could already tell that he had him cornered.
“Ew, no!” Alexander mimicked spitting out something foul tasting from his mouth. Conceding defeat, Mortimer reset the board and made his first move. “I don’t know who is coming son, you know your mother and her secrets.”
Alexander leaned forward, “I know a secret.”
“Okay genius. How?” his sister asked, more so to entertain her brothers fancies as to any actual interest.
“I saw their spaceship when I was walking home from school the other day.”
“Liar!” laughed Cassandra.
“No, it’s true! It was HUGE! It looked like it landed where that old run-down mansion… Oak-something is.”
“Oakenstead?” offered Cassandra.
“Okay you two, enough of that.” Mortimer ordered, “Go do your homework.”
Cassandra grumbled but disappeared anyway to find her school bag. Alex had already done his homework, normally by now he would be inside reading, or experimenting on his experiment-table. But he wasn’t in the mood, he was sure that, that ship had landed in Oakenstead. He disappeared out on to the roof and stepped in to the observatory. There are answers out there, and he would know them one day.
