Three Line Tale #31: Hidden in plain sight

People stared a lot at the unusually well-dressed scarecrow in the middle of the field of marigolds who stood out amidst the orange backdrop with his black riding jacket and the shiny black helmet with a dark visor that concealed his face.

Though they were curious, the villagers never approached the scarecrow, and so the alien’s secret remained safe.

Posing as a scarecrow, he was about to gather much-needed information about the effects of their latest human experimentation.

This post was written in response to the Three Line Tales, Week 238ย prompt by Sonya. Thanks to Sonya for hosting this challenge. If you want to participate, please visit the link for instructions and other guidelines!

For the visually challenged readers, the image shows a figure in a black riding jacket with a black helmet that has a dark visor. The figure seems to be standing in the middle of an open area that is covered by orange flowers that are in full bloom. A few of the flowers block the view of the subject and make it look less focused.

Stay safe, everyone.

  1. Well dressed scarecrow! I laughed. ๐Ÿ˜„

    Amazing take on the prompt, Shweta! I just recently read about investigations on UFOs and aliens spotted. Who knows… Maybe someday we’ll get to see the one in your story for real!

      1. We should get a tailor to make well fitting clothes for the scarecrow. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

        But why is the scarecrow wearing a helmet? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚

      2. Yes. We should ๐Ÿ˜‚
        Let’s start a fundraiser called “Better Clothes for a Better Scarecrow” ๐Ÿ˜‚

        This Scarecrow is an alien in disguise and his face would give it away. Hence the helmet with the darkened visor ๐Ÿ˜
