Getting back in the flow

“And what of it?” The armoured man asked the plates of his heavy armour pitted, dented and, spattered with a drying brown liquid. “His lord may be displeased,” the gaunt figure said, it had the aura of a perpetual sniveling thing about it, a worm perhaps. It’s round pink mouth full of yellowed thorn like teeth, little black eyes. “Pah,” the armoured man spat, “if I cared what that puss filled festering boil of a…

“I’m on it,” Case replied and started to type furiously as her companion started to project a virtual net around her. “Now, I wonder what is in those missiles?” Colin said, “Not worried about the security intrusion?” “If Case needs us, we’ll do something, and if she can’t keep them out of our records, I suspect a couple of missiles will be the least of our worries.

Day 10 Space Adventure

The fox was sitting like an ancient monument to some long-forgotten fox god, a clear sense of aloofness and disdain about it. “What does that mean?” Yori squinted. “Sorry, I’m not entirely used to the vocabulary in this thing as of yet.

Space adventure day 9

They were stood in the large room with the now dormant device, looking around they’d failed to find anything working, now it was more like a silent relic of a distant past. There were several floodlights set up and the group scattered about looking closely at screens and scanners perplexed looks on their faces.
