Continued from this story…
“Zeus was not having a good day and he made sure everyone knew it.” Gregory muttered as he looked up at the lightning through the hole in the roof. He looked down, clueless to why he’d just said that. Johan let out a moan of fright next to him. If he wasn’t chained and shackled, he would put his hand over Johan’s mouth to shut him up.
The door opened, someone walked in, one, two, three, one, two, three, Gregory counted the consistent footsteps. A man arrived before them. He was wearing an Army Uniform, Gregory observed, and his name tag read Benjamin. “Now which one of you is the alien?”
Gregory stared at him, feeling a surge of hope. Could they be victims of a mistaken identity? He turned to Johan. Please don’t show him your antennas, you idiot. He pleaded with his eyes but Johan just stared at Gregory, his lips trembled. He looked like he’s about to cry. Slowly, he turned to Benjamin and revealed his antennas.
