This is the last Six Sentence Sunday, but I’ll keep on posting, and link from the new group if it gets going. (Just found another new group with 8 sentence snippets at http://www.wewriwa.com/) Otherwise, follow this blog. We’re in Coralie’s head, and she’s not at all sure about the alien that was on the ship with them.
A Maung? Maungs on Horizon were bogeymen to scare children. The creature she’d barely noticed on the ship looked more like an oversized animated footstool with eyes–at least she thought they were eyes–on several sides and on some of the tentacles that rose from the center. She moved a little way into the jungle, and saw it following Bounce. It looked terribly vulnerable, with its naked skin shifting colors constantly. But more dangerous dead than alive?
Not exactly your usual alien.
