Journey by Stephen Clark  
    to Ridgetown

 
 
One of the aliens says, "Look at this sorry specimen of humankind! It can't even speak in proper words! You must have made a mistake, bb'ob -- this must be one of the lower animals."
    Another alien says, "I agree -- let's jettison this sample and go back to earth to abduct a REAL human."
    The other aliens nod in agreement and they carry you into the airlock. You are ejected into space. The spaceship speeds away. There is no air out here. You die.
