I’ve made some additional changes. To give the image more depth etc.
A huge thank you to everyone taking part in this! And good luck!
Here’s the story again:
Report X3H 39087
Exobotanist Erod Braskoor.
We were studying the famous and mysterious silicon-based sand corals on Zwootik 5. I was taking measurements and tissue samples in sector Zeta 23 when I heard a strange sound behind me.
I turned around and saw an ethereal sphere of blue light only a few meters from me. The next moment out of the light stepped this strange spidery thing as if it came out of nowhere. After a few seconds of shock the voice of my suit awakened me out of my paralysis Commencing defensive transformation stage one
I felt how the suit began to transform and all I could do was to think NO! Stop defensive transformation!. I dont know why I thought that, but when I saw the eyes of the creature inside the spider I knew, dont ask me how or why, that there was no danger.
We approached each other in absolute silence. What could words express in such a moment? Even if we could understand each other words fail in a situation like this; something else takes over, something infinitely bigger than thoughts and words. I know this might sound crazy but in a way I felt as if I was looking into a mirror, when I placed my hand on the transparent bubble of the aliens environmental vehicle. We may look very different and yet theres only one consciousness. Whenever we look into the eyes of another we look into our own depths.
