They came, they came at twilight. No one saw them.
They slowly landed their space vehicle in the outskirts, in a wooded area.
It had taken generations of planning for this space flight. If they could conquer Earth, all the planning and preparation would be worth the effort.
Little Jonny wanted to play in the woods.
"Don't go far!", his mother told him, "Grandmom will be here soon and we want to leave for the beach as soon as she gets here.".

The aliens were leaving the ship, but they never made it.


It took one second, maybe less than that, and they were all wiped out, smashed, gone, all the planning in vain, from one tennis shoe.
Jonny never realized he saved his planet from alien conquest.
