5.17 - Unexpected disconnect

Jun 13 2011 Published by under Chapter Five

Back to now

Through the auditory connection to his eyescreens, Daniel heard footsteps rushing closer.

Judging from the sound, the oncoming ... thing was moving toward Jeska fast and hard.

Daniel couldn't see it as the eyescreens only showed a closeup of Jeska's face.

But whatever it was obviously terrified her. She had that crazed fearful look she used to give Daniel when he talked about marriage.

“Daniel, you have to hurry,” she whispered. “I’ve held on as long as I can. It’s getting closer. Please Daniel! Hurry!”

“Just tell me how!”

“You need to get the Visitors Bay 2-C5! That’s where they took your ship. The code is ‘Emergency Code 744384.’ 7-4-4-3-8-4!”

Daniel nodded, though he had no idea what was happening. “Wait, who is they? What is this place? Why …”

“Please, just get here as soon as you can!” she said.

Suddenly, something knocked her to the ground and the eyescreens went dark.

But Daniel could still hear her.

She screamed and screamed ... then her voice stopped abruptly.

In the silence, Daniel thought he heard her gasp his name.

Then there was nothing.

Link chat experienced unexpected disconnect, read the glowing red message on his eyescreens. Initiating eyescreen diagnostic.

“Emergency code 744384!” Daniel yelled. He prayed he remembered the code correctly.

“I am detecting a dangerous lifeform in Visitors Bay 2-C5," said the cheery Tour Guide. "Emergency personnel have already been dispatched to that location. Are you sure you wish – ?"

“Yes!!” Daniel roared.

There was a terrible smell and a flash of light.

    Stuck Station crew,

    I said I'd have three posts up today ... but I only have one. I'm really sorry.

    I'll do extra later and make up the difference.

    I promise :)

    Dude, seriously, you don't have to post a bunch to make up. Just keep them coming regularly every morning and I'll be a happy camper. I hope your other readers agree.

    They're going to have to do something about the smell from the teleporter.

      I can just imagine Jeska and Daniel in a tender embrace. Then she quickly pushes back, wrinkles her nose, and says, "you stink like teleporter." :P
