"It has been confirmed that some form of alien craft is approaching the planet", the announcer crackled. My dad flipped the switch. "I thought it would be years from now", my dad whispered to himself in a distant kind of way. "Nima", he continued more audibly this time, "it's time I told you where I came from." He turned to look at me with eyes that pled for me to listen. Then the eyes turned black. His face began to morph. I screamed.
