At the company Christmas party, Arthur, my boss, made a pass. I rejected him. Left early.
The elevator doors open and I'm no longer on Earth.
Somewhere, thousands of light years from home I've been sold into slavery.
A former scientist, I now wear the uniform of a maid.
During my last job, I carried a tray of appetizers into a gathering of the planet's elite. Arthur stood among them. His human form gone. But an alien frame couldn't hide the eyes that deceived.
On my next pass through the room, the tray hid my knife.
Arthur enslaves no more.
