Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday (SFFSat) is a place where a bunch of us post snippets from our written works and also shoot the breeze a little. And before I get ahead of myself, thanks and appreciation as always to those who stop by and leave fantastic comments.
A little preamble for those who don't know: Two characters on an old 'ship' (undecided if to make it a space ship or a ship-ship) that looked like it originated from the 1960s. One sees a 'dinosaur', almost poops his pants, then both characters make a run for it...
You can catch the previous ones:
Part 1: here.
Part 2: here.
And now for this week...they've just dived for cover, trying to hide from the hideous creature.
As we came to a stop, under a console, I heard the first thundering sound of something heavy and solid stomping the metal grate floor. The vibrations ricocheted around my innards and made me bounce off the floor to its rhythm. A small squeak escaped from me. I looked up from my prone position.
Lots of blood drained from my head and limbs, and my muscle mass melted. I might as well have turned to not-quite-set jelly.
“Ohh…” was all I managed to croak.
