Battalion, by Robin Jennings

“Fascinating!” the woman squealed as she watched the pool of blood underneath the man’s body slowly grow larger. She squatted down beside him and ran a finger through it, rubbing the red, sticky liquid between her thumb and her index finger. She looked up at the man. “Do they all do this?”

He nodded emphatically. “They’re pretty fragile, Commander.”

She stood up and their orange eyes locked. “Get on the line, tell central to call back the fleet. We should be able to knock out the infestation with a couple of teams… These human things aren’t much of a challenge.”
