Vertanymaya watched the disc-shaped carnival ride spin. SpinAway No.2, was where he’d hidden his disc-shaped flying saucer. He knew the carnival’s slipshod maintenance crew would never look closely enough to realize a spaceship rested inside one.
It took Vertanymaya a while to find the pierzietzyn crystals in the mountains of Chile. The crystals alone could restore power to his interstellar starship. It would be a relief to the alien to get away from this backward planet.
He stopped beside the ride operator. “Good to see old SpinAway No.2.”
“No.2?” said the operator. “No, this is No.3. We sold No.2 for scrap!”
