Suddenly a round disc about two feet wide flew in John’s window. A door opened, and two strange creatures grabbed him, tied him up, and dragged him inside. The disc flew off and up into space, zooming among the stars.
It finally landed on a red planet. “Mars!” John thought. “Amazing!” He absorbed the sights and sounds.
Suddenly he woke up from his snooze. “How’s your writing going, honey?” his wife asked.
“You know, I think I’ve been inspired. By the recent news. Yeah--that’s it.” He turned to his computer.
