First Contact

The world gasped as the alien spacecraft opened, and the entire planet got its first glimpse at an alien species. It covered itself in slivers of protein, walked on two fleshy tendrils, and breathed a highly corrosive gas. He seemed to manipulate a machine with flagella attached to two tentacles coming from the upper half of its writhing muscular body, wrapped in a thick suit. It looked as us and pressed a button on the machine; it warbled a bit of noise in their confusing language, and then translated.

“We are Humans from the planet Earth, we come in peace.”
