“If you ever tell anything about it to mama, I will ask my friends to change you into a dog or a rat,” said my brother. I had seen him necking our cousin.
“That’s nonsense; no one can change a boy into a dog or a rat,” I tried to stand up to my brother.
“You have not seen my friends; they are not from this planet. They are aliens. They visit me often.”
“Last year they got stranded. I helped them repair their space ship. You know how good I am at machines.”
I knew it was all fantasy but, like a fool, I believed him. Or perhaps I wanted to believe this fantasy.
“I want to meet your friends.”
“I will have to talk to them.”
“Then talk to them or I will have to tell mama.”
For once I had turned the tables on him and that made me very happy.
