Out Of This World: Alice Bell

  1. Hi Alice,
    Great story! I haven’t read one where the statues are aliens yet. Brilliant idea! I really liked the way you gave both of the speaking characters personality in just 100 words. The “straightening his white jacket” line was a neat touch which instantly showed the intern’s anxiety. The dialogue between the characters seemed natural and flowed really well especially towards the end in the build up to the climax. Good twist at the end when the alien attacked the scientist. Keep up the good work,
