Here's an excert....
""She followed him, there was no thought for anyone else in the house as they lived alone. Vinnie's father had left five years ago, nobody knew where he was. They would have considered going through to the sitting room but its large bay windows were blown out. Vinnie closed this door and turned back down the corridor, up the stairs and into the large main bedroom, which over looked the normally quiet street. His mum was quickly beside him, whipping back the floral net curtain. The taught wire holding the broad white sheet pinged and it flexed outwards to fall and gather like an avalanche of snow before the long ribbed radiator. A scene of terror was presented.
They were stunned into silence as they stared out on complete mayhem. The miniature parachutes were still landing, hovering patches of swarming unknowns, blurred rocking clouds infesting the sky and in between these bullets of brown smashed through unguided to hammer blow anything in their way. The sound of car alarms had become a horrific soundtrack, sharp peaks of noise tearing at the sky and on the road cars were slowing up or speeding to avoid the air bombs. An old SEAT mounted the curb, ripping a high pitch screech from the undercarriage, to navigate around a stationary white van but it too came to a full stop as its window screen imploded, one of the aliens striking it with the force of a plummeting brick. There was a scream, as the car door flung open and Samantha Doggett tumbled out of the driver's side.
Mary from her vantage gasped, "Samantha!" taking a step closer to the window.
Outside the stumbling woman was heavy, thickset with short mousy hair that revelled the rolls of fat ribbing the back of her neck. Vinnie could see them quite clearly from his bedroom vantage . Samantha Doggett glanced around and appeared dazed, side stepped a slow descending alien, flinched, the pressure on her ankle too great and fell, out of view and into the gutter behind a soft top Saab.""
