Ok so imagine aliens coming to earth to recruit people for dangerous missions. We’re tough, we’re stubborn, we’re ridiculously durable, not to mention downright adorable.
A few months in and things are going pretty well. The humanless crew has met humans before, and they know they come in a variety of skin and eye colours. Blue, green, brown, grey. Every colour they could see, humans had it somewhere.
And then they met Rebecca.
Rebecca lookee ordinary enough at first glance. Dark brown hair, average build. Nothing out of the ordinary. Until you look at her eyes.
They’re two different colours. Upon closer inspection you find one is blue, and one is green.
Perhaps this human is dying.
So when they hire her, they’re sure to treat her extra nicely. No one dared to bring up her condition until one day Korp asked.
“Oh it’s totally normal!” Rebecca assured them with a laugh. “No reason so panic”
While her assurance was comforting, they refused to take her second part of advice.
With humans, there was always a reason to panic.
(Idk why i didn’t think of this before. I have the same eye colour as rebecca, though not as apparent as one would think)
