My First Encounter With An Alien

Valaha was sketching in his room. He had to submit the final draft of his latest cafe design by the next day. It was so stupid. As an architect, he should have never messed with the cafe owner... wait, scratch that. Being an architect has got nothing to do with never messing with a cafe owner. Well, long story short, he told the cafe owner that the layout of his food shop was messed up. And the owner was pissed, he dared him to come up with a new layout in two days, or he had to pay for everyone's meal for a whole week, If he succeeded, then he got to eat there for free... for a year.

Back to his current situation, he was giving the final touch to his new layout. When he was just about to finish everything, he heard a bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

It sounded like a series of explosions! Or perhaps firecrackers. He looked outside.

"What the hell???"

There was a greyish little man, or boy, standing outside of his house. He stared at Valaha... and smiled.

"Hi there! Wanna join? I have loads of these things, let's play together!", the grey man, or boy, offered some of his firecrackers.

"Oh shit! Oh shit! No way! No way! No! No! No! There's an alien outside of my house! They have invaded Earth!"

Valaha ran outside, but not without a weapon. While running, he could not help but realize that he was like in a movie where there was always something to grab from the house when something eerie or bad occurred. In his case, the most typical of all, a baseball bat.

"Now you, alien guy! You may have invaded this planet, but don't you dare to think for one second that we'll surrender without a fight! You may take our lives, but you will never take... OUR FREEDOMMMMMMM!!!"

"Oh dear, he has started quoting dialogues from 'Braveheart' again. Guys! Help!", the alien called for reinforcements.

Valaha was clearly outnumbered and in just seconds, he was apprehended. While holding him, one of the aliens explained the situation.

"What situation?!!", Valaha refused to listen.

"Your situation! Look around you! Look!"

Valaha reluctantly did what was told and... everything slowly came back to him.

"You see? You get it now? You're not on planet Earth anymore. You're on planet Tripaltakupisumaitadish. Your Earth was destroyed by a mega earthquake eight years ago. Only six people survived. We saved them. We saved you! But the other five have died. Three of natural causes, two...committed suicide. You are the last of your kind! And here, you are the alien!"

"Then... what happened to me? Why didn't I remember this before?"

"Well, when you first arrived on planet Tripala.. Tripaltalak... Tripapa... here, you were in denial. You didn't want to believe it, didn't want to accept the truth, so you kind of... developed your own 'kingdom' in your imagination. Occasionally, you'll come to realize the truth, like now, but then you'll get back on your imagination plane. But we'll know right away."

"How...?"

"You always quote dialogues from 'Braveheart' movie when you're...crazy."

"I see...then what's with those firecrackers?"

"Well, we noticed that humans loved firecrackers, so we developed ones of our own in order to make the survivors feel like home. But turns out, we love firecrackers more than you guys ever did."

"What?"

"They are so fun and addictive! We play with them every day and every year there will be about 630,000 aliens got hurt by firecracker explosions! We even tried to eat them... and we exploded. But since we possess high speed regeneration, it's okay. But we don't encourage humans to play with them! Leave the danger to us!"

Valaha, Tripaltakupisumaitadish and not to forget Tripala.. Tripaltalak... Tripapa...

If i die, then given a life once again, I highly doubt I'd ever come across with these words. If Valaha get married with one of those aliens, his son/daughter shall be named muahahaha.

aimooo: well. :P

asyrafirdaus: agreed. :D

sakinah:"Tripala.. Tripaltalak... Tripapa" was the alien's attempt to pronounce his own planet, which he failed. haha. i think 'wahaha' is a lot more suitable. :P
