This week's story was inspired by the random word "decoy."
Nigel G. Mitchell
Toby Conrad felt disappointed when the blonde standing at the bar headed for the door. But at the last moment, she looked over her shoulder and winked at him.
Toby ran out after her, and spotted the blonde walking into an alley next to a Chinese food restaurant. He followed her into the darkness. A blinding light pierced the sky. He felt himself lifting off the ground. He screamed as he vanished.
Kodoc watched the Earthling teleport into the dissection chamber. "She did it again."
"Of course." His partner Saadyn pointed at the golden-haired android. "The decoy works every time."
