Yelina stared in horror as Boom-Boom Kitty dove straight down the nearest hole in the ground made by the grotesque alien drones.
‘Oh, no! What are we going to do?’ Kiko said as they watched the alien probes drift away from them.
‘Crap, crap, crap!’ Yelina said, dithering a moment. And then, ‘You two go after those things! I’m going after my kitty. Switch to your high-frequency broadband, so we can stay in touch.’
‘You’re going down there?’ Carly asked her incredulously.
‘Get moving!’ Yelina ordered, moving towards the hole. ‘There’s no sense all three of us getting trapped down there!’
As Kiko and Carly flew off in pursuit of the alien intruders, Yelina turned her attention to the hole. It looked just barely wide enough . . .
‘Oh, well; here goes nothin’.’ She jumped in, feet first.
Startled by the sudden dark, Yelina switched to radio resonance imaging so that she could see in the pitch black. At once, in grainy shades of grey, she was able to make out her surroundings. She stared, wide-eyed, as she saw that the walls everywhere were lined with alien probes. But they seemed mounted there, switched off, lifeless.
‘Huh! Guess they’re just stored here until the Bad Guys need ‘em. But where the heck are the Bad Guys? And where is my kitty?’
She began moving down what appeared to be a curved corridor- and almost tripped! Looking down, she saw that the “floor” was very uneven, as though . . .
‘Geeze! Whatever lives in here, it doesn’t need “floors!’
The “floor” looked very much like the “walls” and “ceiling”, being uneven and lined with equipment and apparatus of unguessable purpose.
She heard a scuffling noise from further down the corridor- recognised the sound of her kitty, frolicking in the dark. As she moved to intercept him, she groaned as he moved further into the bowels of the enemy vessel, making a game of it.
‘Boomers!’ she hissed. ‘This is no time to be playing “chase!”’ The floor being too uneven and uncertain a surface for running, she went back to flying and went after him.
Rounding the end of the corridor, she came to an intersection. Hearing her kitty, she looked to the right. The feline in question sat at the top of an opening, looking down.
But it was too late. Boom-Boom Kitty dove down into the darkness and vanished.
You are the alien.
