He could feel the horrors in the corners, the evil of the shadows. He could feel the monster lurk, creatures run in fear.
He wanted to leave, wanted to run. He was still there.
He wanted to scream, he wanted to fight. He stayed still.
Paralysed by darkness, nowhere to flee….
-What is that? I’ve never seen anything so… So beautiful!
-Our people have been inflating these bubble-things since the beginning of time, for longer than our collective memory can take us back.
-What are they for?
-I don’t know, the old man said. They stood in silence for a while…
-We’re taking in water!
-All men to the pumps! Captain Jack held on the the fence, the strong wind almost throwing him over board.

-It might be a boat, or land even! We need to reach them, whoever they are. Starboard, full speed!
She was the air and the sea, the wind and the waves…

Galaxy Gary stepped out of his space ship. A hostile planet it was, Phosphor volcanos made the air unbreathable, the dry landscape gave life to nothing.
He walked around. Something moved in a distance. A hideous monster came running his way, followed by several others. They made the most most horrible gurgling sounds. He got his space gun out.
They kept coming,
“Kill them! Kill them all!”
They fled into the dark forest. The battle for their village was lost. The horrors of Drronk’s past had come to the place he thought he had been safe for the first time in his life.
“Noooo! Not that way!” Her scream drowned in his fear.
Raaaaaawrrrrr!!! Hideous fangs cut towards him, claws flashed in the darkness. He lifted his sword.
