HUMAN "Human." The word was coughed out from the failing strength of the once-powerful reptilian. These two had shared their long years of the graveyard posting on this howling desert. The reptilian had long fantasized about the true nature of the Earthling. If only he might have hoped for a shape-shifter, a secret vampire, or even one of these wolf things from Earth. Now he sadly watched all these hopes fade faraway as watched his partner leave with the last of the good water, of the energy cells, of everything. "Oh yes, only human!" he said and reached for the remote detonator. end
