A Lot of Hand Waving - Epilogue

Here is Susan Grindel at Spider Hill Radio and our Music show tonight is almost over until another day. We have time for one more song, however tonight we do something a little different. Our new friends have now left the town. All but one. The leader, tragically killed by a spider attack, remains. These people, so strange to us, we first misunderstood. Now we know they are Mime Artistes, who speaks not with words but actions and expressions. To them we play the last song by not playing the song, with give them silence and our wishes for safe journeys.

A Lot of Hand Waving - Part 7

On the top of a small hill near the town of Spider Hill, but far away from the spider nests, a group of pale faced people stood in circle around a fresh grave. Light rain fell from the cloudy sky and from the pale faces, the eyes cried eyeliner. For some the hands were raised to brows, for others they waved in front of them and gripped air with grief. A few sobbed silently on anothers shoulders. All were brought together in silent sorrow, grief displayed with gesture and expression. Every movement clearly made with a wave of the hand, a turn of the arm, a lowering of the head.

Veronica open the door a little, looked out and then shut it again.

'There is one on the other side of the door,' she whispered to Susan who stood behind her with the others.

'What do they want?' Susan whispered back.

'I do not know,' Veronica whispered a reply.

'Why are you whispering?' Charlie asked loudly.

'Sssshhh!' Veronica and Susan both said.

Veronica opened the door. A woman with a very pale face stood outside. She was wearing a striped top and beret like the others. She raised a hand and waved.

'They have surrounded the building!' Veronica exclaimed when Susan ran down the staircase. Susan ran to a window and looked out. Outside, two of the strange pale face creatures were waving hands in the air. One seem to be feeling for rain and then opened its Umbrella, invisible of course. The other began to dance, one hand holding down on its beret.

A Lot of Hand Waving - Part 4

Here is Susan Grindel of Spider Hill Radio with a special report. As our listeners know, there has been encounters with-

Aliens!

Ummm, sorry... our engineer thinks they are aliens, but the truth is, we do not know who are the strange pale face people seen in Spider Hill. We have seen them around the station building, we have seen them make strange hand waving, we have seen the strange striped tops and berets. Now, our newest reporter, Mr Luke Redeye, has volunteered to go outside to investigate. Luke, can you hear us?

'Can you hear anything?' Susan Grindel, one of the radio station main broadcasters, asked.

'No,' Veronica said listening to the door. 'Nothing.'

'Perhaps they have gone,' Susan said.

'Only is one way to be sure,' Veronica responded. She opened the door. A pale face with a beret stared back, Veronica gasped and quickly shut the door. 'No, still there.'

'Let us look from above,' Susan said. Veronica followed her up the staircase.

They may be from some clone experiment or may be creatures from the radiation zones. At the present time we do not know.

A Lot of Hand Waving

Veronica stopped the buggy, jumped out and began to walk towards the building containing the Spider Hill Radio control room. Her eyes danced left and right to the ground so to avoid meeting anything with eight legs when suddenly she bumped into someone. She looked up. It was a man wearing a striped white and red top and a red beret.
