This week’s words: Tangible Alien Duck Enhance Revert Garnet Possessive Dissolution Objurgate(rebuke severely;) Quickening Possibility Decathect (v)) to withdraw one’s feelings of attachment from (a person, idea, or object), as in anticipation of a future loss)
The Ducks were aliens and lived in a suburbia that provided them with a never-ending source of entertainment.
It wasn’t easy to blend in as they discovered upon landing the humans were not very averse to oozing sulphuric gases from their slimy bodies, reptilian scales and multiple eyes. They therefore took on human form squeezing their bodies into human shells. This led to them both to decathect towards each other their human shapes repulsed the other. They awaited the day when they could revert to their true selves, when dissolution would mean they could once again go for it like rabbits as they often heard the crude humans say.
In the meantime they had a mission and could not afford to be possessive of their former selves. They sought a supply of garnets. The precious stones had a tangible effect on the Ducks who discovered that by caressing such stones and infusing the rich red silicate texture their reproductive abilities rose to unprecedented levels and the Ducks as a species were in need of a boost to their numbers as the supply of garnets on their home planet, a fast becoming desolate planet, a little to the left of the Milky Way and a short way from the twenty third sun of &^%$(*&% was almost at zero.
In human form the Ducks observed the humans as a curious lot. Several times a day one would objurgate the other when it became far to interested in some human activity, like shopping. This fascinated the Ducks for whom the concept of shopping was a fruitless preoccupation when they saw no reason to enhance their already perfect state.
The possibility of discovering a supply of garnets drove them on and they quickened the pace of discovery having received a memo from their home that their people were in dire need.
In a quarry on the edge of town they discovered a supply of garnets and set to work to extract them. Handling the precious stones meant they had to on several occasions to stop to deal with their respective heightened sense of innate attraction to each other, which meant dissolving their human shells and acting upon their overwhelming impulses in the only way they knew how. It proved a most satisfactory mission in more ways than one.
