Convoluted Convolutions

A shadow loomed over Huxley and she turned and screamed. Something kicked the periscope, though, so I couldn’t tell what was happening. I knew that I had to spring into action again.

Quickly, I ran out the door and punched the up button on the elevator. I tapped my foot as I waited impatiently for the doors to open. Not quickly enough they did, and I leapt into the elevator car and tapped the button to the floor above. The doors closed and the metal box began to lift. Hey, it’s The Girl From Ipanema! I got to the floor and the doors opened.



Quickly, I ran down the corridor and threw all my weight into the door. This one didn’t give. I stepped back and threw my shoulder into it again. It still didn’t budge. The third time was the charm, though, as the door cracked open. I looked around and I didn’t see Huxley or Gervais in the room anywhere. I unslung my M41A Pulse Rifle and scanned the room for any movement.

I turned around and I saw it looming over me!



Game over, man… Game over!

Private Hudson, when you shoot a Bug, make sure you kill the Bug, because if you don’t (as you are finding out) payback is a B****

That is really pretty creepy. And speaking of creepy, do you know what I'd like to see? Huxley's outfit being torn in suggestive and revealing ways.

I don't think there is enough fabric on Huxley's outfit to allow for much of that, Professor.

Maybe all the creature really wants is a breath mint and a little understanding, possibly a hug. If not, I'd sugguest a short burst to the front of the cranium. And don't forget your personal protective equipment; eye protection could make a world of difference in this battle

my suggestion would be kill first ask if it wants a hug or mint later
