Trapped aboard an unfamiliar ship, at the merciless whim of alien beings, the four prisoners from the scout ship “Gentle Wind” must somehow survive. The problem is, they don’t speak the language and they don’t understand the culture. Also, one of them is wounded, one has a concussion, and the third is a child. Adding to their difficulties is that an alien has been thrown into their cell. Is this alien supposed to help them or hinder them?
Sly-Eyes launched himself at the monster at their den’s door. He tried to stretch out his left beside his other arm with claws extended. The sling, however, interfered, and made him bend his arm awkwardly. Unfortunately, he had the farthest to jump. He knew he didn’t have a chance of reaching the creature before it managed to get off at least one shot, if not two. If he were lucky, the wounds wouldn’t kill him immediately and he could take down the monster. If he weren’t lucky, well, at least the shots fired at him were not being fired at his Co-husbands. That might give one or both them time to deal with their monsters, and his as well.
The metal floor of their den betrayed him. He felt his claws sliding as his legs straightened to propel him out the den door. He wasn’t getting the purchase he required. He failed to hit the monster with his claws at its throat. Instead, Sly-Eyes crashed into its knees, knocking it down on top of him.
That probably saved his life. The monster, on seeing him leaping, had shot at where he had been seated. Sly-Eyes heard the “TWANG” as the projectile, fired at his head, slammed into the wall behind him.
