There was an alien in our family. I have two brothers. I didn't know which one it was, but my mother and father stated one evening, 'He's different, he must be told before he finds out himself.' Mum insisted that he must know by now even though he looks like us. They created him that way. One day, they would come back and take him to Mars, his home. 'I know,' said Dad. 'But I love him.' That was once upon a time. Now I sit on Mars. I often think of my earthly family.
