Flash Fiction: Harmless

It was an ancient strain that had existed for millions of years… stable and harmless. But after generations of infection-paranoid hypochondriacs assaulted it with antibiotic drugs and antibacterial soap, it finally went extinct. No one mourned the loss of a common, harmless bacteria… least of all the alien invaders who were fatally allergic to it.
