Greetings Weekend Writing Warriors! These are the last 10 sentences in the first chapter of my short story about Daniel, whose Last Day did not turn out as expected. Next week I will be sharing something from another short piece I have written, which is completely different to what I have offered so far.

The cage tipped and Daniel was helpless to prevent himself from being unceremoniously dumped. Expecting contact with the cold, hard metal surface in no way prepared him for the splash, or the lungful of salt water. He rolled and tumbled in the freezing, churning waves, until he bobbed up to the surface, gasping and coughing. It was pitch black, and the waves were heaving.
“Looks like we got a live one!” He felt himself being hauled out the water by the scruff of his neck.
“Dudes! Check this out!” Daniel found himself staring into the wide yellow eyes of a round grey, undeniably alien face.
