“Did you see them?” Vance asked.
“See what?” came the voice over his phone speaker.
Clearly, she had not, or Marybeth would know exactly what he was talking about. “Lights in the sky. Like UFOs.”
“Well, I guess that would explain it,” she said. “Several people from school have posted things about aliens landing. Ken Surber said it looked like something out of Star Wars out there. I thought maybe his dad was shooting off fireworks again.”
“You’re friends with Ken Surber online?”
“I am friends with Ken Surber online. And in real life too. Are you jealous?”
“No,” he said, a little too quickly. “Except that…oh, never mind. Mom and Dad and I all saw them. First it was some red lights, almost like meteors. Then there was this big, glowing cluster of lights over the TNT Area. Remember what I told you about the call my dad got?”
“About lights in the sky. Yes.”
“Dad said that people saw things like this back in the 1960s. When the Silver Bridge collapsed. Do you know anything about that?”
“Not really, no.”
“I think I’m going to have do some research.”
“You think there’s some connection between what happened in the 1960s and now?”
“That’s what I intend to find out for myself....”
