Things were happening fast for Artur. The crew from Thurmont had already moved and they were setting up in one of the meeting facilities. The trucks out harvesting the healthy people would be arriving shortly. Artur felt good, his army was coming together and once the camp was secure, he would feel better.
When the sonic boom sounded, Artur didn't react immediately. When the sound subsided, he thought for a moment and then thought, "What the hell was that?"
He looked to the west and saw a bright object in the sky. At first, he was afraid that the military had fired a missile at him, but the object didn't look like a missile. Even though it was getting larger, it was descending in the sky and Artur suspected that it was going to hit the ground some miles to the west.
I'd better check that out, he thought.
Fortunately, Willard was walking by, looking at the same object descending.
"Willard, I want someone to find that thing and find out what it is. Send someone right now."
"Yes Artur, I'll go myself." That will give me a great excuse to get out of here for a while, Willard thought, who knows I might even stumble across one.
"Good, go now. I don't trust them. They tried to kill me once and maybe they're trying to do it again."
