"Good for you, man." Mykl smiled back tiredly. "Good for you."

Pretty soon, Mykl would be back with one of the good things in his life. Perhaps his relationship with Ripley Jones was only temporary, but she was currently the best thing in his life. And it felt good to have someone to go home to for a change, even if home turned out to be just a starship in the depths of lonely space.

Considering the way he felt now, about everything, it would be really good to see her again. She was someone who would care in ways a doctor could not, she was what had kept him going – an anchor to hold on to in the storm of life the past few days. He knew they would be together soon and he could make it up to her. Somewhere on the horizon lay Tremaine, Antares, and Ripley Jones. He already knew what she was doing right now. She was waiting.

For him.



Imagine, if you will:

The battle cruiser was lost. In the desolation of the vastness of space, all was silent. All, that is, except for the screaming. Then that too fell mercifully silent.

Captain Armon Kaine was the last of his crew that had survived – or at least, if any others were still alive, he was unaware of them. It didn't seem likely, given the circumstances. Somehow that… thing had managed to kill every one of his crew within the space of only a few days! All had died horribly – mangled and mauled to death!

'What madness would create such a thing?' He wondered.

He had to end the madness – stop the slaughter. His will was iron, his course set. That thing must not be allowed to get out of his ship and kill again – it had to end right here, right now! His nerves were overtaxed, almost over the edge – he was relying on instinct to keep him going. Kaine's sanity seemed to be slipping out of his grasp, but he had to hold on – he had to. Long enough to make certain the trail of blood would end here.

With him.

Finally the bridge door loomed ahead. The end was in sight! The door slid open and he stumbled weak-kneed through. Several mounds of mangled flesh – all that remained of his last bridge crew, lay sprawled on the deck grid in welcome. Most of the lights had failed in there, leaving the bridge mostly in shadow.
