Drabbling – Humanity

President Milwood had been thrilled to be the one invited to meet the aliens until they actually arrived.
“So you see,” they explained, “that all this time you humans have believed you were a naturally evolved species you were mistaken.”
Face pale with shock, the President made excuses to the alien delegation and withdrew from the meeting room.
How was she going to tell the population of Earth that humanity was an experimental genetic hybrid testing some obscure hypothesis and the research was now concluded, the funding cancelled and the planet to be cleaned up ready for the next experiment?
