"Of course everyone blames the aliens. But they were working right up until ten minutes before the blast, that’s what really bothers me, and that’s what makes me think it was all just bad timing." A near-future SF story about a mother, her daughter, and how they react to the integration of aliens into their neighborhood, school, and job. Part of The Wannoshay Cycle (also an ebook).
"Of course everyone blames the aliens. But they were working right up until ten minutes before the blast, that’s what really bothers me, and that’s what makes me think it was all just bad timing. Bad timing for Janna and me, too, when I stop and think about it. We’d be long gone from here if it hadn’t been for the Wannoshay. Now I’m out of work, we’ve moved everything out of our apartment once again, and the investigators are asking me what I know."
Terri never wanted to have to deal with the alien Wannoshay. She was busy enough with overtime at work and taking care of her daughter on her own, one step ahead of the bills.
But when the Wannoshay move into the city and then start working at the brewery where Terri works, she can no longer avoid the situation. And the situation is about to get explosive...
