Morgs are from Venus

The creature was here.
Malky dusted the frost from his Morg Detector.
The reading showed ten in a thousand parts of nitrogen dioxide
and traces of nitric oxide.
A trace!
Malky locked his visor, sealed his suit and turned on its heater.
His knees began to shake.
He saw the frosted roses in a vase of water pellets.
What was the Morg after?
Was this a Valentine’s gift and attempt at amorous flattery?
Or a trap.
Were there frosted chocolates?
A lyrical voice called, ‘Malky’.
His detector bleeped nitric warning.  Too late.
She was beautiful. He was frozen in love.

    A relationship doomed from the beginning. Frozen in love. Great line.

  9. The suit, even with its built-in heater, could not protect him from the Morg’s icy charm. A fun read.

  11. A tempting alien… and it’s amazing to make love to an 8 armed girl…

  12. I guess that love is not all it’s cracked up to be, unless there’s a cooling off period.
    Very imaginative. I enjoyed it.
