A Brush With Aliens

by Denny E. Marshall





Upon arrival, aliens inform all governments of their intentions. They plan to attack and destroy earth. No one knew what to expect.

They cover earth’s surface with a very thick layer. The layer extents a few hundred feet past the summit of Mt. Everest.

No one expected to be painted.
