SF Drabble #109 “Brain Food”

Oye is hungry.

The landing boat waits under the water of the large lake. It is cloaked. The ship is safe. Oye has time to find food.

The animals smell right, but they are too small. Small animals are fast and Oye cannot catch them. The large animals look slower, but most are inside vehicles or in groups, and Oye has no weapons but fist and fang.

Time is short. He grows hungrier. As hunger grows, mind shrinks. He remembers that. Oye must find, kill, and eat something before he is too stupid to do anything but sit and slobber.
