CHARLIE'S DREAM DATE
The sun was high up in the sky. Birds chirping at the edge of the woods. The
trees swaying as the morning breeze blew. The sky was totally cloudless. And it was so warm,
so bright. The usual hustle and bustle of a Monday morning was already underway on the
streets. But still, Charlie was on his bed snoring at the top of his voice.
Charlie - a five foot eight inches high, average built and fairly good looking
man, in his early twenties. He was really a cool guy to hang out with. He had lot of friends and
everyone liked him a lot. He didn't have any bad qualities like drinking too much or smoking.
But, no one will be completely perfect. Charlie was really shy around girls and so he had not
dated any girl. But he really wanted to date one. He was also a big facebook junky. He would
be online on facebook 24*7. When this incident took place Charlie was a college student.
Charlie opened his eyes and looked at the clock. It was already eight forty five.
He sprang up from the bed as if some spring was attached to his back. He looked at the
calendar. He thought," Monday??? Not again...". The college bus was going to be there in
fifteen minutes. He knew that he was not going to make it. He went straight to the phone, rang
up his friend Elliot and left him a message that he was going to take that day off. Charlie turned
on his monitor. It displayed his facebook profile page from which he had never logged out for
months. As usual he browsed through his profile. "Nothing different !!!", he thought. Just then
a message box popped up. It was a friend's request from a girl named Elanore. He never knew
anyone like that. He accepted it. In the next minute a chat window popped up. It was Elanore.

Elanore: Hai there
Elanore: Really feeling bored on a Monday morning
Charlie: Me too... In fact, I bunked my classes!!!
Elanore: Really !!!! Me too....
So where do you live?
Charlie: Northern corner, Lincon Street
Elanore: Hey, I think we both are of the same type!!!
Let us meet at your place
What do you say???
Charlie: Wow!!! That's just great.
Elanore: I'm really feeling hungry and let's have some fun!!!
Elanore: Now it's nine. I'll see you at ten. Bye
Charlie couldn't believe that this was happening. No girl had ever talked to him
like that before. He then hit the shower and had a hot shower bath. Then he cooked some
breakfast; took out the best shirt he had, ironed it well and wore it. Just then the door
bell rang. He went to the door and opened it. It was Elanore. Charlie told her to come in.
"Wow! She's hot!!", he thought . He told Elanore to sit on the couch and that he would go and get some
redwine. When he was about to go Elanore grabbed him by his hand and pulled him closer to her.
She then right away kissed him on his lips.
Charlie jumped up from his computer chair. He was daydreaming all the time.
It was already nine forty five. Elanore would be there in fifteen minutes. "No time for a hot

shower and for ironing a shirt", he thought for himself. He had a quick shower and cooked
some breakfast. He wore a t-shirt that was lying on his bed and placed a wine bottle and two
glasses on the drawing room table. Right then the doorbell rang. Charlie hurried off to the door
and opened it. His eyes widened and his jaws dropped and he stood their transfixed for some
time. Then he let out a horrible cry," Ahhhhhhh......!!". A big fist like green thing knocked him
out. Four big tentacles came and grabbed him by his hands and legs, lifted him up and carried
In the evening Elliot came to Charlie's house to see if he was alright. He checked the
whole house. Charlie was nowhere to be seen. The back door was open. Elliot went to the
backyard. But Charlie was nowhere to be seen. All he found was Charlie's jeans and t-shirt
in the trash can. After this event Charlie was never seen again.
Meanwhile, a few miles away a guy named Jake was browsing through his facebook profile.
Suddenly, a window popped up. It was a friends request from a girl named Elanore. He accepted
it. Next minute a chat window came up:
Elanore: I’m really feeling hungry and let's have some fun!!!
After sometime, sound of a door bell was heard. Jake opened the door.

Elanore: "Mmm.....delicious !!!!"(Evil voice).
Just want to remind you about the dark side of sites like facebook. It's good to a certain extent.
Only accept friends whom you personally know. Be careful while chatting with strangers.
Always think twice before you post anything personal on your or other's wall. Otherwise you
may also become the prey for aliens like Elanore, just like Charlie and Jake.
STAY SAFE FOLKS!!!!
