Humans are Weird: Tears and Crying
Humans are already like the only mammals who’s tears are also tied to emotions (At least I believe so). But tears already look different under a microscope depending on whether they were sad, happy, angry, etc. But Imagine how Aliens would react to that. They’d figure out we cry for sadness pretty fast probably. Maybe not so much for pretty much any emotions.
*Jolion’ian sees Analisa crying and curled up against a wall*
Jolion’ian: Oh no, Analisa!…. Would you like a hug?
*Analisa just nods and Jolion’ian gives them a hug. Later on, Jolion’ian sees Valentina with clenched fist and a red face with tears running down their face.*
Jolion’ian: Oh no, Valentina! Do you require a hug? *Goes to hug Valentina*
Valentina: Do not fucking touch me!
Jolion’ian: *Jumps back* Do most humans not require physical contact when they are sad?
Valentina: I am not sad! I am pissed the fuck off!
Jolion’ian: But… you are crying?
Valentina: I’ll explain later but right now, leave me the hell alone.
Jolian’ian hurries and leave because no one likes disobeying an angry human. Later on, Jolian’ian sees Jacarei making loud noises, holding their stomach with tears running down their face
Jolian’ian: Oh no, Jacarei! Are you hurt? Are you sad? Are you angry? Do you need me to just leave?
Jacarei: Wh-What? *Laughing* N-No! Im just laughing! *More hysterical laughing*
Jolian’ian: But… when Analisa cried she was sad, when Valentina cried she was angry, but youre… happy?
After seeing Jacarei nod, Jolian’ian walked away confused. Wondering if he should tell the captain that humans dont just cry when they are hurt or sad.
