Night Light

Post by eggyolk » Sat Apr 17, 2010 8:03 pm

The lights came every night. They brought metal limbs that hovered over his helpless body. Metal fingers that cut into his skin, injected strange serums into him, and sewed everything back in place. The lights came every night and left before dawn. No one in the apartment heard them, and they came to no one else. Every night the spidery limbs stuffed his carapace back into the soft human covering, stretching it over his frame. Every night the fine needles reintegrated his own neural circuitry with that of his exterior shell. Fixing his fake smile and softening his inhuman form.

New meaning to the term, 'Alien Abduction.' They aren't abducting humans, they're abducting other aliens to give them a tune-up.
