Space Girl Blues
by Bruce Pavalon
A young man with a troubled past falls in love with a young woman who believes she’s been abducted by aliens and that one of her alien abductors has fallen in love with her.
Chapter 8: Dream #2
Tucked beneath her covers, the young girl waits. It is dark in her room. Then light shines through her window, and the window slowly opens.
The Geico Gecko, Chef Boyardee, the Michelin Man, the Morton Salt Umbrella Girl, Cap’n Crunch, and the Green Giant crawl through the open window. They dance around the young girl’s bed. Smiling, she sits up, climbs out from beneath her covers and joins them, dancing around her room.
The Green Giant moans and offers his hand to the girl. The girl growls and takes the Green Giant’s hand. Clapping, the others form two lines. The young girl and the Green Giant strut their stuff down the center of the two lines as if they were on Soul Train.
The young girl’s collection of My Little Ponies watches from her shelf. The Ponies are happy except for Princess Celestia who knows that something is terribly wrong.
