The Crash Site
Sutter and Holcomb got out of their black minivan, cursing. The area surrounding the crashed alien vehicle was become a vast parking lot full of children dressed in those idiotic cat costumes! Men in black and soldiers alike stood around looking baffled, weapons upraised like hands thrown up in a gesture of helplessness.
Sutter went directly up to a man in uniform.
'Who's in charge here?'
The soldier gave him a look. 'Does it look like anyone's in charge?'
'Why haven't you secured the area?' Holcomb shouted, becoming apoplectic.
'Take a look around, dumb-ass!' the affronted soldier shouted back. 'There must be a hundred-thousand kids here, and there's more coming, from all directions.'
News helicopters overhead hovered with cameras sweeping the scene. As though through the lens of the camera, Sutter and Holcomb saw a vast sea of children dressed in Boom-Boom Kitty cat costumes.
Holcomb looked to Sutter. 'What the hell are we going to do?'
Sutter's look darkened. 'Let's get to the entrance, that door on the ship that's been opened twice. My guess is that if any door to the ship opens, it'll be that one. We'll let these fools do our work for us- get the aliens to open the ship. Then, as soon as the door's open, we'll storm the ship and take it.'
