From "Aliens" by Pat Kings

Harry tried not to laugh, but couldn't help it. The gremlin, as Harry thought he was, pointed a skinny finger at him and uttered a garbled message to another figure who had come up behind him.

Before Harry could move he was surrounded by three or four more green creatures. They grabbed his arms and legs and bundled him through the hatch. Harry was surprised at how strong they were. The craft was barely four feet high so they pushed him to the floor. There was a dashboard in front of him with different shaped knobs in all different colours. A small screen above displayed another of the green creatures who spoke in a metallic tone like a robot. None of it made any sense to Harry.

One of the men took the controls and there was a whirring noise. Harry felt his stomach lift then turn over. Through a slit-like window, Harry could see they were already above the trees.

"Where are you taking me?" he asked. The green man on the screen appeared and spoke.

"We are taking you to our planet, Megastar."

And to this very day, Harry can be seen at the Zoo for Alien Species, Central Megastar, open daily, 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.!
