The US government provided Mishala-colmbrianna’na-kinilaria (Aria) with a monthly stipend. Though she looked human, most human food seemed bland, except pizza.
Bored, she asked to join the American Special Forces.
Chief Haines wasn’t sure about recruiting an alien. In her apartment he said, “Plain cheese pizza? Don’t you have food from home?”
In her basement, the creatures were chained to the floor. Each was twelve-feet tall with man-sized crab-claws and scorpion tails. “Dinner!” exclaimed Aria.
“What do you shoot them with?”
“Shoot? That’s no fun. You choke them to death.”
Haines closed his gaping jaw. “Welcome to Seal Team Six.”
