“Do you understand what is expected of you?”
Five individuals were sat around a table, their attention turned to the youngest member as they awaited his answer. The room was dim and elongated shadows obscured their faces.
“You are certain we need a human child to complete the experiment?” he answered, unsure.
“Yes,” replied their leader. “Is that a problem?”
“Surely children are innocent…”
“There is no such thing as an innocent human. Would you prefer to continue to live under their oppression as we have done for decades, too afraid to show your face for fear of being slaughtered merely because of your identity?”
“No, sir,” he replied meekly. “I will do what you ask of me.”
“Where will we get it from?” somebody else asked.
“Not a city. There will be too many people. They could overpower us in our current condition. Target a village,” the leader replied.
The youngest member arose from his seat to carry out his task. He felt deeply uneasy, but when he thought of the alternatives he felt he had no choice.
He would kidnap a child.
