The Boy in the Coffin

…”We are ,” Clive said with a grin, “programing you and your friends to forget who you are and be our loyal servants.  We need your ability of seeing our invisible enemy from the planet, Rakutan.”

“Heck!  I don’t think I can see any invisible thing.”

“Yes, you all do.  We tested on you and your friends for that.”

I reached over the rim of the glass case, grabbed him by his coat front and pulled him close to my face.  “You crazy puppet of Makumban!  Let me out of here now!”

He jerked back and straightened himself.  “Don’t act like that for your life.”

“So, when do I get to leave this stupid coffin?”
