This is my contribution this week to the challenge Monday’s Finish the Story hosted by Barbara Beacham. Every Monday, Barbara supplies a new picture prompt along with the first sentence to be used for the story. The story is to be written with only 100 to 150 additional words. I’ve bolded the first sentence given with the picture prompt.
The link for all the other stories is as follows. Be sure to click on the little blue frog in the blue box:

ALIEN By P.S. Joshi
Racing down into the atmosphere, the unidentified object crashed leaving behind one heck of a huge crater and a plume of smoke that could be seen from miles around.
That was how X-19 from the planet Tippin described his landing on Earth in his log book.
This would be a day to be remembered on both the planets.
He unstrapped his safety harness and prepared to leave his ship by putting on his blue atmospheric suit set to imitate the conditions on Tippin. The scientists on Tippin weren’t sure of conditions on the landing spot on Earth.
Then he switched on the cloaking device to make his ship invisible to all on Earth. He was taking no chances in case the people of Earth were hostile. He knew some were warlike.
He took out his advanced compass, switched on his interplanetary translator, opened the hatch, and stepped outside.
He heard a deafening voice from above saying, “Hey Mom. I found a new bug of some kind. It’s over here in a hole in the ground.”
