|The Lost City|
Something crashed beyond the mountain.
“Don’t go,” they yelled. But she walked through the shallow waters all the way to the other side.
She wanted to run, but… They were grumbling about some technical failure and trying to cool the engine down.
“Need any help?” she asked amused at the scene.
“Yeah, a couple of you could hop in our energy processor so we can go back home. That would be great.”
“Like… burn to death?”
The aliens shrugged. “Whatever…” and got back to fixing the engine.
These days, you can’t even trust an alien to be scary anymore!
