At first, Sally and Dave were terrified when they saw the alien spaceship land. Even worse, the centauroid alien had a wolf-like head full of teeth.
Turned out he was quite friendly and settled in to enjoy picnicing with the humans. He thought Dave’s hatch chile sauce was brilliant on steaks.
As they ate, Sally noticed some of Yellowstone’s bears walking into the spaceship.
“Lookout!” warned Sally. “They’ll wreck your ship.”
“Oh it’s their ship,” said Broyk. “I just borrowed it for spin.”
“Bears are aliens?”
“Those are. They were visiting their lost tribe.”
“Crash landed on Earth 100,000 years ago. Decided they preferred the simple life, so they stayed. The advanced tribes check in on them occasionally.”
“Yeah, they were just delivering critical supplies for living among humans.”
“Like what?” said Dave. “Cold fusion powerplants?”
“Nanotechnology medical supplies?” said Sally.
“Nah,” said Broyk. “Can openers.”
