How I discovered my neighbour was an alien from outer-space

in #aliens6 years ago (edited)
This true story contains my personal experience about meeting two aliens with my son, nearly 10 years ago.

Here is the start:

We lived in a small sleepy village in a little cul de sac with fairly large individual houses. People keep themselves to themselves. You don’t know your neighbours. You almost never even see them..........

Before I continue, let me explain why I am only writing this story now, nearly 10 years later?

@mctiller is running a writing competion called " A man suspects his neighbor is an alien, from outer space."(

I have my story which is TRUE.

This competition title caught my eye because it REALLY happened to me about 10 years ago.

So here is my TRUE story.

How I discovered my neighbors were harboring aliens in the basement

We lived in a small sleepy village in a little cul de sac with fairly large individual houses. People keep themselves to themselves. You don’t know your neighbours. You almost never even see them.

One of our neighbours had sold his house. We came to learn that the buyer was a foreign ambassador, or maybe the embassy itself. There was nothing particularly surprising in that. In fact several people in our village were diplomats or ambassadors.

We came to learn that the buyer would be carrying out some renovations before moving in. We weren’t surprised to see all kinds of digging machines, lorries and skips move in. The workers seemed to be foreign. Again nothing surprising about that. Many building jobs are carried out by cheaper foreign workers. Most people here are highly educated and tend to get jobs behind desks, rather than become manual labourers.

Every day several skip loads of rubble were filled and removed. I guessed that they were digging downwards to make a second basement, or maybe a swimming pool under the house. It was impossible to say. You couldn’t see from the street, and it was well protected by fences.

What started to become surprising was that the digging went on for months, and every day the rubble was still being removed in skips. I joked with my wife “They must be 5 basements deep by now”. Still it didn’t stop. Every day the same workers (maybe 5 to 8 of them), would come in and the skips full or bubble kept being removed. It was impossible to believe that so much could come out of a new basement.

Finally after about a year-and-a half to two years the digging stopped. It was replaced by a strange noise, day and night. It didn't disturb us. It wasn’t loud, but you could hear it if you stood near the chained up fence. The best way to describe the noise, is a bit like Dr Who’s Tardis when it takes off. I joked with my wife that it must be aliens. She laughed, and said that I was imagining things. She said that the noise is maybe from a water-pump, as the hole under the house must be a mile deep by now, and it was bound to be filling with water.

The ambassador hadn't moved in yet. The workers continued to enter the house daily, chaining up the fence from the inside.

One evening, I noticed that the workers had forgotten to chain up the fence. I and my 17 year old son decided to investigate. We just had to know what was making that “Tardis-like” noise.

Trespassing is a serious crime round here. You just don't enter someone else's property un-invited. But we did it anyway.

We entered the house at the back. The door was not locked. Everything inside the ground floor of the house was like normal and finished and furnished- just like any house, except there were no personal items like books, paintings, or ornaments. It was very clinical, just tables, chairs, In the lounge, no TV. We wanted to visit the rest of the empty house, but all the doors were locked, and there were no keys. We couldn’t move around.

There was a lift. An elevator. My son pressed the button. After a nearly a minute the elevator door opened, and we entered, pressing the lowest button - there were many buttons all with weird characters in them. I thought it was probably asian script, I but teased my 17 year-old son, saying it must be written by Aliens. How little did I know what was about to happen next.....

After nearly a minute in the lift the doors opened. What we saw terrified the life out of us. The giant underground room looked like the inside of a space-ship. It was right out of a science fiction movie. There were lights, levers, buttons, large devices, control panels, displays everywhere. I would swear that we were inside some kind of deep-underground flying saucer. This was nearly 10 years ago, even before the iPhone had been invented. Even by today’s standards, the amount of technology in that room would blow your mind. The noise that you could only just hear in the street was loud. It was like being in the machine room of a giant boat. Very noisy.

That wasn’t the scary bit. Not the noise. Not the technology and flashing lights. What terrified the life out of us both were two aliens. I can’t describe them. They were almost humanoid, probably with two arms and two legs. It was hard to say. A bit like the space suits of the men walking on the moon. These aliens had giant heads encased in some kind of glass. I can’t describe it exactly. It was brief. It was terriying. We don’t know what these creatures are but for sure not humans.

We didn’t wait to find out more. I pressed the top button, the lift doors closed and after nearly a minute, we were back where we started. I don’t know if these aliens saw us. There was too much noise to hear the arrival of the lift. I don’t think they noticed us arrive and then leave very quickly, but we can’t be sure.

We fled the house, terrified. We couldn’t speak to anyone. We feared for our lives. You would too if you saw these frightening creatures. Only now do I dare to tell what happened on that day. To help you understand the fear, we sold our house that year and moved to another village. We did not want to live near aliens.

Looking back nearly 10 years later, I think the conclusion is that the foreign government have made contact with aliens from outer-space and given them sanctuary in our old village while they secretly plot to conquer mankind.


This is mind blowing. Your guess was just so accurate. I can only imagine how shocking that detail must have been. Knowing what goes on around one's house is very important you know? What if those aliens were the aggressive ones and the get lose off the cage or break out of the restriction, it must have been a bad sight. Taking a bold step to verify your assumption did the magic I believe @swissclive.
I can't stand having something scare the hell out of me one day, the best I would have done in your shoes was to leave that village too.
Did you ever find out what eventually happened after you left? I'm sure the other neighbours will just stay there in ignorance of what lies around them. The story got frightened when you gave the suspense of "something that happened next". Interestingly, you were exposed to what true aliens look like rather than some of us who have only seen them in movies. Thanks for bringing a story you have never shared to us right here @swissclive.

I can’t say what happened. At any rate I don’t want to meet those aliens. On the other hand, since 10 years have passed and the planet earth is still safe, I can conclude that maybe the aliens are so intelligent, they have no need or wish to destroy us star-wars style. Instead they are keeping us in peace as a social experiment to see how social networks like steemit conquer the powes of evil.

Lol... The latter part of this response is hilarious. I hope they don't get manipulated and their intent changes in latter times. I hope that they can walk on the streets some day and we don't all freak out.

The true test of their social networking tendencies will be that, they mix with humans. Maybe they are not as powerful as the movies paint them though. Just thinking....

I agree with you that they are intelligent and can be cultured maybe. I hope I see one in my dreams soon enough @swissclive. The real life experience won't be funny.

What if, the aliens you see 10 years ago is tracking you, and now he find you here, OMG!!!!

Wow , this is amazing. Did you ever find out what happened in your old village ? The house you sold . If not, can I make a humble request on behalf of me and the fellow readers . Can you visit your old village, if something had happened, they will be news around the town if you ask cause I don’t wanna imagine those things are still there in the underground advancing in their technology for 10 years. Look what we humans had done in 10years . What would they had done by now down there with a much more advanced technology. We’d really love to know the current situation there now . This could call for a national security .

A good request. I really wana get updates on this story. Gosh! This freaks me out.

Honestly, these are the kinds of villages where everybody minds their own business and you can never see in a neighbour’s house or garden. Everything is very private. I am sure nobody knows a thing about what is deep down underground.

Wow, so definitely those things are still down there?
So there are some aliens in this world right now. This is incredible but as long as they don’t plan to take over let them continue their research for the betterment of earth nation

Gosh. This story really terrifies me not because its just an alien story but because i have never believed any of the alien stories i have ever heard even in documentaries. It terrifies me because i am hearing this story from one of the most trusted and loved person j have come to know on the steem blockchain and even though my entier being begs to call this story a bluff, i just can't.

I have no choice but to believe this atory because i know you are too mature to tell a lie this huge and even upvote it for a larger audience to read. Gosh i am so terrified and i will resteem this post and also feature it in a poat i will make very soon about my thoughts concerning aliens and how this story has changed my perspective. Damn!


After reading the story, i also went ro the tags to know if you used the fiction tag but saw nothing and i was like OMG.

I am an alien from outer space and I use to eat my neighbours so be careful

Shoot! I feared some steemians might be aliens. There is another one who already made an alien-like comment. So wen already have a 20% alien penetration rate on steemit.

It really happened. These aliens looked like they were wearing space suits.

DUDE you can be also alien by Photoshop @swissclive

I even thought he was going to write'alas it was a dream' at the end of the story. But wait, I still don't believe dis ... Aliens In real life and not movie... No No No, please, tell me it is a joke

And then I woke up.....

Seriously..... my son and I were scared shitless. Who knows what kind of creatures we saw. We only glimpsed these monstors for less than a second.

Wow, was scary towards the end when you talked about two aliens. I have watched movies with scary aliens but never believed they existed. Only thought it was just technology at work in making those movies but guess your experience proved me wrong anyway.

Also I learnt a lesson, don't always be too inquisitive to know about everything happening to you but that doesn't mean you should not be security conscious of your environment.

Thank you @swissclive for sharing but are you still within that environment?

It was maybe the most scary moment of my life. Imagine a scary movie, only worse. What worries me is that this is quite close to CERN where the scientists are trying to smash two atoms into each other. Some say this will create a black-hole big enough to swallow the whole solar system. Imagine what advanced aliens could do, if they burrowed into CERN.

That would be so deadly but what's the goal of smash two atoms into each other.?


You gave a home run with full bases. This story is amazing, very good indeed, you made me move to the place and I imagined the scene, I imagine that if you dedicate yourself to write a book, you would have a lot of success.
At the same time, you encourage me to write a fiction story about a romance I have with a mermaid. hehehehe

Thankfully, the aliens are friendly

Now romance with a mermaid would be hot! Did you know that 400 years ago, the mermaids or sirens would sit on the rocks, waving at the sailors. They tried to lure them onto the rocks.

There are many stories that have been made to believe that they are true. and even discovery channel, brought to light a documentary about sirens, hehehehe greetings my friend

Up till this point I can't still believe that this is true.
Reading through your story sent chill down my spine.
Its really terrifying to know that dangerous creatures like that are being haboured in our planet. I just hope all those terrible things we see in Sci-fi movies of planets being destroyed by aliens don't end up coming to pass in real life.
Your story is really amazing @swissclive. I read through every lines with rapt attention down till the end.

Hmmmm...your conspiracy theory at the end makes, lol. No wondering they're investing so much in nukes.
We all have that weird neighbor who does strange. I had one. He always left and came back home at odd hours, never spoke to anyone, his wife did the same. Maybe they didn't want anyone in their business, but why? What were they hiding?
Nice story, I enjoyed writing this. I would inform the aliens so they can visit your new village. 😏

Maybe it was Satoshi Nakamoto in a nuclear-free space suit building bitcoin mining rigs from broken Nintendo Gameboys?

Oh, now I'm the head is spinning. Google I need you!


Okay, now I've learned something new, thanks to you. There is still so much I have to learn about cryptocurrency.
And thanks for the upvote. My heart skipped a beat when I saw it...

I would prefer it if he were repairing the broken Nintendo game boy because i love game boy so so much.

I'm still wondering if this story is true but then, thinking of you @swissclive, and your solid reputation and personality on steemit I can only credit your experience. I think you should do more than just one article, this episode is one of the most relevant experiences of close encounters from Roosevelt onwards. From what you could see, do you think there could be a possibility that these were experiments by national or supranational organizations or would you exclude it? Even if you left me quite scared, thank you for sharing this rare experience.

I had to drink 15 beers before going in the house to try to make me more courageous. Obviously I was a little woozy when the aliens scared the shit out of me, so I didn’t get all the details. Most likely you are right. This is probably a cooperation between aliens and government that is being kept secret. Every government must want the knowledge aliens will bring them, so they are not going to share it.

It's strange that noone here quoted the "War of the Worlds" effect, when H.G. Wells radio program caused a mass panic attack. Mass behaviour is fascinating.

I read War of the Worlds 45 years ago. I also read about the Mass hysteria when the radio show ran it as if it were for real.

Same thing happened when Radio 1 invented a fictitious “free concert” “somewhere in London”. All roads clogged up as thousands headed in their cars to the suspected location of Hyde Park. That would have been the early 70’s. They were forced by the police to reveal it was a hoax.

Studying collective behavior is interesting because, under certain conditions, people start to behave like one single organism. It's almost like a physical phenomenon like the passage from a state of the matter to another. From now onward, you'll be our steemian Orson Welles @swissclive (and my respect for drinking 15 beer)!

From my personal experience I donot know that aliens ever exist or not . But yes I believe in ghost that they exist and we have that in our holy book as well that ghost exist . But not sure about alien's exist in this world or not. But thanks for sharing your experience to the steemians.appreciated.

Mankind got to this planet thanks to aliens. They shoved some DNA in a monkey’s brain, and poof! We lost our body hair, stood upright, and started to value possessions.

If you have any doubt, check out the Drake equation.

Ok i will.give a detail study to what you have said i wish i get to a good result i the end..

What a great day to start, this is amazing. Yeah maybe alliens went deep in that house and started their activities. Well it must be very terrifying while seeing alliens in front of you. Or they could be robots in alliens shape. Well thats very very interesting story....

It could have been some kind of joke or maybe just plastic model aliens. We didn’t feel like waiting to find out.

Yeah you did good that you get out from there quickly.
