N - NONOS HELMET



:: Today is N - NONO'S HELMET ::

“Stop it Nono, you can’t scare us,” the cousins squealed, from behind the cushions.

“Then why are you hiding, stupid?” Nono taunted, from inside the weird helmet.

“We’re not scared you dumbo! That thing is hideous, remove it. Then we’ll come out. Where did you get it anyway?”

“I found it in the backyard! Feels weird inside; kinda smells too. Belongs to some alien, I guess.” Nono replied. His voice was changing a bit.

“Alien in the backyard,” the cousins giggled.

“I’m not joking! And I can’t remove the helmet. It’s stuck,” Nono said, alarmed, as his face began melting.

  2. Oh man, Nono really paid the price for his childish curiosity. I guess the aliens who left it must breathe sulfuric acid or something. That last line is really a gut-punch of a twist.

    Nice one.

  7. Tragic science fiction outcome. I think the aliens have a plan. They just don't leave their stuff laying around. Good story and well done.
