Take Out Interrupted

Ray, a 42 year old single man in Maine decides, yet again, to grab some take-out after work. Life is hard and monotonous. Ray would love a home cooked meal from a nice lady, other than his mother. Hopping out of his truck, white paper bag in hand and the smell of fries in the air Ray comes to a stop. He is blinded by the light that pierces through his windshield. He emerges from the car to find answers to his questions. Suddenly, his nosy neighbor who spots the bright light as well comes out from her shabby front porch and joins him. Ray's hunger has vanished as quickly as he does into the illuminated sky. The neighbor is left there with a story she will never forget but one no one will believe.
