100-Word Scifi: "Cold Call"

Every week, I write a 100-word story based on a random word. This week's word is "telephone."

Cold Call
by Nigel G. Mitchell

"Hi, I'm calling to offer you a chance to win a brand new car. Do you have a moment?"

"Uh, sure. A new car?"

"Yes, just answer this one question, and you could win a brand-new Mercedes Benz. If extraterrestrials invaded Earth, would you be willing to submit to their rulership?"

"Uh, sure, why not?"

"Thank you, sir. Can I get your name and address to contact you if you win?"

Xomif tapped his keyboard with his tentacles as he added the information to his list of future slaves for the Xenon Empire, then hung up, and dialed another number.
