I was having mixed feelings about what we were about to do. Fear, anger and excitement swirled through my mind and body like a blizzard of emotions. I wasn’t sure where to begin. I started asking myself, what are the main questions we need answered. What are these things? Where do they come from? What do they want with us and our planet? Can they feel pain like we do? What we really need is to find a flaw in thier operation like the fucking death star. One weakness that can bring them all down. Without that I see no way that Josh, Angel and me will be able to kill them all. God knows how many there are and where they are. There were reports of the meteors hitting various spots all over the Earth. How is the rest of the world fairing against these things?
Angel, who was standing guard outside of the cell door, was being stubborn about moving aside when we went to enter the room. Her hair was standing straight up on her back and she had a low growl in her throat. She did not like the idea of us opening that door. After a moment of scratching behind her ears while talking softly to her with reassurances, she whined like a puppy and obeyed. I wasn’t sure what to expect when we entered but I sure as hell didn’t expect to find the thing sitting on the floor chewing through its own limbs to get free of the chains.
Its snakelike face was even more grotesque with bits of green, shell-like skin, human blood, and black oily shit all over it. Multi-colored slime dripped from its fangs. It had already been successful in gnawing through one disgusting insect arm. It lay on the floor next to him, still twitching, as he worked on the second insect arm. There was black slime and blood everywhere, the walls, the floor, the ceiling. The scariest part was that it appeared to be regrowing the bug arm. We could plainly see what looked like a wierd version of human bone and insect shell-like skin sticking out of the point where a humans elbow would be, slowly re-forming. The sight of it all was hideous, traumatizing, horrible. The smell was stomach-turning. One whiff and I was running back out of the room clutching my stomach trying to hold my spaghetti down. Josh followed closing the door behind him. He put his hand on my back and asked if I was alright. I’m not used to simple gestures of kindness like that so I jumped back a little, but he didn’t remove his hand. In fact he started rubbing it up and down. Massaging my shoulders and back. Human contact, its been awhile. When I looked up at him, I saw he was whiter than a ghost. I guess seeing and smelling that gave him a start as well. I stood up straight, turned and wrapped my arms around his middle. He returned the hug and we just stood there like that for a minute. I was suddenly very aware of how thankful I am to have him here with me. So much has happened and sometimes it doesn’t seem real. I wake up and I’m not sure if I’m awake or still dreaming. Now at least I know I’m not alone anymore.
When we stepped apart we both seemed to feel the same urgency to hurry and resecure the monster behind the closed door. He went straight to the weapons, I looked for something to keep it from biting itself or infecting us with the bug slime. I finally found the perfect thing mixed in with the womens clothing I had found when I first came down here. I really wish I could talk to my buddies who owned this place, cause I am dying to know which of them was the sex freak! Among the clothes, there were also a few sex toys, a strap-on, a regular vibrator, an anus sleeve, a leather mask, a whip and one of those gags with the red ball that goes in the mouth. I grabbed the mask, the gag and then I grabbed the whip just for shits and giggles. I wouldn’t mind getting a few lashes at the alien bug with it! I walked over to where the weapons and Josh were, put the stuff on the table, and started to pick through everything trying to decide which kind of torture device I would like to use. I decided I would take the taser and my blades in. When I turned back to him, he was holding up the mask, gag, and whip with a wry grin on his face. His eyebrows were raised so high they were practically touching his hairline. The grin tuned into a big smile before he said “I’m not saying a thing” and burst out laughing so hard that I couldn’t help but laugh with him. “oh shut up” I said while cracking up, “they were here when I got here!” “suuure” he purred “ya know if you wanted to get freaky all you had to do was ask.” I punched him lightly on his good shoulder and he burst out laughing again.
While the giggles were dying away a thought occurred to me, I decided to run it past him. “If it can grow back the alien limbs, do you think it can do the same for the human ones?” He looked at me like Christmas had come early and said “OoooH, lets go find out!” He took an ax from the wall and after pushing Angel aside again went back in.
