Ravi woke up before the simulated dawn in his enclosure. He had hardly slept that night. He had overheard the zookeepers say that he was going to get a new mate today. He jumped with joy. He couldn’t remember the last time he had seen a human being. Actually he did, it was exactly two thousand four hundred and fifty days ago, when he had knocked on his neighbour’s door and told them to decrease the volume of their party. And the next day he had woken up in this house like enclosure being gawked at by slimy slug like aliens.
He had asked for a mate for a long time now. He just wanted to talk to someone human. But his display was not the most interesting one in the zoo, hence he was mostly ignored. That was until month ago,when he had had a nervous breakdown and thrown things around his enclosure and shouted at the slug like aliens.
Ravi cleaned the enclosure as best as he could. He wore his clothes after a long time. A huge crowd of aliens had gathered to witness the union. They made sickening slimy noises in anticipation.
At last the door to the enclosure opened. Ravi ran to the door and stopped dead in his tracks.
“No, no ,no…” Ravi mumbled. Another man walked into the enclosure.
“This is not…” Ravi said.
“I know man. Tell me about it.” The man said.
He took off his clothes to reveal a raging hard-on.
“I am really sorry, man, but they expect a show…” the man said.
