A Plague Upon Mankind
I am fully aware of the risk involved, I cannot just walk into the computer room without being seen. Once I am within reach of the portal, I will make a run for it, and use whatever means necessary to stop the creatures should the situation call for it. If I fail at my task the end result will be the same and the future of man will be no more. With my mind and body clear of the toxins I wait for the transport tube to come to a stop, knowing not what waits on the other side. The winch slows down and then comes to a sudden stop; I take a deep breath and hold tight the syringe between my clenched fist. When first the door opens, I am relieved to see that no being is waiting on the other side. With a false sense of security, I exit the transport tube and walk beyond the corner of a long quiet corridor. However my confidence is quickly thwarted when I turn another corner and walk right into the very creature I am trying to avoid…
The character in the story has many difficult decisions to be made. He holds the fate to a lot in his hands, I would not want to be in his situation.
I hope he plunges that syringe into the creatures eye! I would not want to be in his shoes right now!
