SF Drabble #16 “We Conquered From The Ocean Too”

When this started, everyone thought it was a meteor shower: then a couple pods came down real close to the shore. They all landed in the water, of course. A Navy helicopter got some good video of one pod splashing down, breaking open just under the surface, and disgorging it’s occupant, with it’s tentacles, machinery, weapons, everything.

They’re forming up somewhere in the middle of the Pacific, building something deep underwater. There’s a few of them swimming with a big pod of dolphins, I heard. I wonder if the dolphins are going to be on our side when it starts.
