A New Food Source

It is a crude form of imprisonment and one I could escape from whenever I want to, but for now, I am happy to sit here, curious to see what my captors will do next.

These Earthlings are a feeble-minded, primitive race but nonetheless quite fascinating to observe.

The fact that they discovered me rummaging through the internal organs of some of the local inhabitants is unfortunate but nothing I need concern myself about.

Once this brief rest period is over I will continue my detailed research, already certain that I have discovered a new food source for our people.

  1. Yuck! Raw offal, as if the cooked version isn’t bad enough D: I don’t think those aliens will bother about humane killing. It will be a case of rip, claw, and no anaesthetic. It’s something I think of whenever I read about us attempting to send out signals to alien civilisations; that there’s a danger they’ll stuff us in cages like battery hens and humans will finally learn what it’s like to live in hell and die horribly.

    Well written, Mike. I will do my utmost not to think about your story when eating my lunch half-an-hour from now ๐Ÿ˜‰
