100-Word Scifi: "Apex Predator"

Every week, I write a 100-word story based on a random word. This week's word is "prey."

Apex Predator
by Nigel G. Mitchell

Herbert Owens looked around the professor's small office. "I have a question about your lecture. You said that man has no natural predator."

Professor Amanda Pierce leaned over her desk while raising her eyebrows. "That's right. What's your question?"

"What if you're wrong? What if Mankind did have a predator, but just didn't know it?"

Pierce smirked. "I think we would know it."

Herbert closed the office blinds. "Not if they were smart. Smarter than you."

Herbert's jaw opened wider, exposing multiple rows of fangs. Claws extended from his fingertips. Pierce screamed as he lunged across the table at her.
