The Apartment #253

by

Suddenly and completely a phrase filled Harry's mind.
It resonated over the picture he'd created in his mind and terrified him so completely that he could no longer think. His mind's cartoonesque image of the alien was destroyed, to be replaced by the awful and threatening reality of their situation. He would have collapsed if he were not held by the others, would have fallen if he were not in almost gravity-less space.
The words rung out, each a sentence of death, each one a terrifying statement of reality.
"Where we are, we are not the aliens. You are."

    Damn cheeky aliens! (But true, actually.)
