A Plague Upon Mankind
Before leaving the room I drag the lifeless body of the alien into the corner behind a desk. Hopefully she won’t be discovered too soon and this will buy me some much-needed time. The corridors of the massive ship branch out in several directions. I search my memory for anything that may be vaguely familiar; a window or stairwell that I may have past when they first captured me. My eyes pan each crevice of the ship until I hear the sound of several creatures approaching and quietly duck into an empty room and allow them to pass. When suddenly it occurs to me that energy must come from a power source. The portal would need to be powered by something substantial. Possibly computers, but the room would be massive to support something this powerful. When I was first sedated, I remember falling in and out of sleep; the elevator or transportation tube as they call it. That is how I ended up here…
This is some journey. I hope it pays off in the end. I can’t wait to find out.
I would be so scared trying to escape by myself!
