100-Word Sci-Fi: "Trash Day"

Every week, I write a hundred word story inspired by a random word. Today's word is "garbage."

Trash Day
by Nigel G. Mitchell

Matt Woodland scowled. "Why do I have to take out the trash again?"

Veronica held out a trash bag with a green arm hanging out of it. "I'm the one cleaning up these things. The least you can do is take them out to the curb."

Matt sighed, grabbed the bag, and trudged out the front door.

On the street, all his neighbors were out shoveling up the bodies of dead aliens left over from the invasion.

Matt tossed his bag onto the huge mountain stacked on the curb. He shook his head. "You never see this in the movies."
