SF Drabble #234 “Aware”

I sat next to an alien on the subway today.

He didn’t know I knew; they never do. They think their cloaks work perfectly. They’re so fucking arrogant. He even kept pretending to read after everyone else got off.

When he followed me off at my stop, I knew he’d selected me for experimentation. So when we were out of sight of the bus, I turned around and killed him. He looked so surprised.

The body didn’t change right away. Later, it was on the news, but they were broadcasting some cover story about a human being murdered. So typical.
