The Balloon People

It was easy repel the balloon people's first assault; I simply punctured each balloon with my pocket knife. One of the balloon people escaped after observing my rudimentary tactics. The balloon people's subsequent forays were unstoppable, for I couldn't tell when a balloon person had encapsulated someone. I couldn't shoot a friend, even if I knew it was really a balloon person.
