Today's #flashfiction The Alien's Contraband

“Spring is in the air.”

I wonder what would happen if they cast Arnold Schwarzenegger as Willy Wonka for another adaptation of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

The Alien's Contraband

          A space cop pulled over Yucv the alien above Earth's orbit, the planet unaware of their extraterrestrial guests. Yucv was carrying Vonrum, best translated as Dangeranium, a highly illegal and valuable substance that can only be handled by authorized labs but was worth more than anything else on the black market.
         In their alien language they spoke to each other over their communicators. The cop asked from his UFO, “Sir do you have any idea why I pulled you over?”
Yucv prayed to every god from every world he could think of that the officer didn't detect his Dangeranium, but he figured that he may as well be in prison now. Or maybe he should activate his warp drive and try to flee. “No officer,” he replied.
         “Your mysterious lights are out around your UFO. You know the Lesser World Advancement act made it mandatory that all ships have mysterious lights on to encourage lesser worlds like the one below to explore the stars on their own.”
          Yucv originally turned off his mysterious lights to avoid detection by the space cops, but since he already been spotted he might as well be a nice image in the nice sky for the humans to see.
