Jimmy is nervous. His relationship with Susan has developed into something serious. Susan notices Jimmy is shaking.
“What’s the matter Jimmy?” Susan asks. Jimmy knows he should tell her the truth sooner or later. It might as well be now.
“There’s something about me you don’t know I have to tell you,” said Jimmy
“What’s that?” Susan inquires.
“I’m a shape-shifter,” states Jimmy
Susan, who’s in shock, asks Jimmy. “What do you really look like?”
Jimmy changes into to his true form. Susan screams. After she calms down, she asks him, “What are you awful creatures called?”
“Humans,” replies Jimmy
