Ella the Alien Spy - A flash novel

Humor / Children

Chapter One

My name is Ella, and I’m an alien spy with blue hair.

Actually, I’m only half-alien. The Mothership bought me here on Earth, but left me behind with my very human father when it left. I’m here to collect information about the human race.

Its not hard to do. I don’t have to write anything down or remember things, like I do at school. I just have to watch the humans very carefully; the things they do, the words they say and the way they behave. All of this gets soaked up in my brain, like a scrape of butter on warm toast, and one day the Mothership will come and get me, and I’ll be put in a big machine that will read my brain like its an encyclopaedia.

Don’t worry, it won’t hurt. The Mothership would never hurt anyone or anything; it is much, much kinder than humans.

Until I have collected enough information I have to stay here, in this house of warm, reddish-brown brick, with my family. There is my dad, and Arthur, and my earth-mum. Only they and Ms Suhn know about my mission here on Earth. Ms Suhn suggested I keep a journal about my mission – and I’m not sure why, because I’ve told her its top secret. The world can’t know about the Motherhip. But she tells me I don’t have to tell anyone about what’s in my journal.

I will tell you about Arthur first.

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Julia Summers PA: Reading this now. It's fun, hilariously fabulous yet taste of what you desire in a unusual read. I will post an actual review when I am finished. But so far loving the flow and the story seems to keep me drawn

Marijana1: The story might be characterized as “modern fantastic”. The representation of “the future” is not only ironic and fault-finding, but also very critical. Of course, it is highly exaggerated, but I get the feeling that it may well be linked to the truth, even though it is far away from it. The fact...

wildweeder: I found the story "The Last Starry Night" to be exciting and entertaining (and a little bit scary in parts). I loved the way the young people explained things to each other.The growth and development of the young Warriors that Johnny adopted was fun. Listening to Grandma talk to them in "wisdom s...

: Nothing like I have ever read. Loved every single bit of it, it had the right amount of romance and humour. I would definitely be re-reading this book. It certainly captivated me, it was so difficult to put this book down.

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

Beloved Q Medina: At first I figured it was another genre fiction book and didn't have any expectations, but by the first few chapters I found myself engrossed in Sid's journey. Some say that genre fiction is predictable, or not as substantial as literary fiction, but this novel was anything but that. I found myse...

Omega: In awe of this writer's ability to set a scene, all be it a dark and disturbing one. Feels true to the characters and shows a good understanding of the human psyche. Can recommend, but may touch a nerve if you have suffered abuse.
