Her blood was red, much different from his

greenish-blue life-sustaining fluid. He was with her

when she was wounded, but they escaped, he recalls

that. When he first saw her bleed he was startled,

frightened, but told her he did not love her any less.

He cut the skin of his long arm like appendage to

show her his blood, to somehow convey that he loved

her. “We will discuss your emotions after we have

succeeded in ending your planet’s despoiling of our

planet.. Perhaps you will be able to visit my planet,

after yours has been subdued, its aggression stopped.”

He deflects his eyes from the EXIT sign and

sees innumerable others, unmoving and encased in

separate compartments. Then he recalls leaving his

planet, banished for life for supporting the alien incursions

of 2087, those whose blood was red. The magical

red blood, he thinks, and attempts to free himself

from his restraints.
