Dean and Felix trained binoculars over the rusty fence.

Felix said, “You sure your girlfriend’s cheating?”

“Not sure,” whimpered Dean. “It’s just she meets this guy often.”

A man and a woman walked into the overgrown back yard. They took off their clothes.

“Dude, I’m so sorry.”

They took off their human skins.

“What’re they saying?” said Dean

Felix listened with his long-range microphone. “He’s her supervisor. She was studying you, but she’s fallen for you.”

Dean sagged against the fence.

Felix said supportively, “Dude! Your girlfriend’s an alien. Anyone would be traumatized.”

Dean sighed, “I’m just glad she’s not cheating!”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    I’m glad he didn’t reject her just because of her skin. That would have been unforgiveable. Engaging story with a good surprise ending.

      Yeah. He’s a guy who’s truly in love. Discovering she was an alien was the very least of his worries. It seems “she” chose him carefully. I’m glad you enjoyed this one. Thanks kindly! πŸ™‚

    I do enjoy a good love story. It’s nice to see they continued their relationship. This must have been set before Maria revealed her gills and Felix said she should become a lifeguard πŸ˜‰

  11. So, could you say that although she wasn’t cheating with her suoervisor, she was skin-y dipping with him?

  12. It’s all a matter of perspective, I guess. Given the option, I think I’d rather my wife was an alien than have her cheating on me. πŸ™‚

      Sure is. If someone’s cheating on you, they may as well be a repulsive alien. For Dean, he still got an alien, but at least he loves her and she’s loyal. Who can fault that?

    I don’t think I’d like to be studied by another species, whether it was faithful or not.
    Good piece.
