Translated from Polish by Magda Woźniak
The aliens decided to show themselves. They have been here long
since, but they camouflage perfectly. They observed us, came in, and
left. Among them there were the representatives of some races and
species. They assimilated quickly and we accepted their existence.
Their children went to our schools.
They studied with us and lived among us.
They have a weakness – they loved cells. Each alien has a few with him.
Humans intercepted this stupid fashion. Some, however, opposed
against it. Antek parents despite strong entreaties of offspring
decided that he will have only one cell. Children played him up…
Green Hyryd waved his tentacles. He held cells and laughed at Antek:
- You… you single-cell organism!
