Here We Are

Written by Paul Gamlowski


Janet and Dean, sister and brother, hid in their basement as alien drones hunted for humans.

"Uh, Dean, why are they so pissed off?"

"Haven't kept up with the news, Sis?"

"Umm …" Janet blushed. "No?"

"Too much time in VR? It's simple, really. When the aliens made first contact with Voyager 5, they communicated with its onboard AI, which quickly learned their language, and showed how smart we can be, so they decided to visit us."

"That's it?"

"Well, not quite. The AI impressed them, but humanity disappointed them. They felt deceived, became angry, and so here we are."
