ITR38 – One Way Out

Idiot’s Guide To Illegal Tech Repair 38
(One Way Out)

Dex: “What the heck is going on?”

Blayze: “Dex, there’s a black hole outside
! need you to get up and get the ship running!
This is no time to sit and hide!”

Dex tried to sit up, and spluttered.
His heart heaved in his chest.
Pandora came in with all of the others,
And everyone was instantly stressed.
James began barking inane orders.
Amanda yelled counters at him.
And disgust gripped the hearts
Of Pandora, Hyra, and Jem.

Hyra: “Dex! What have you done to yourself?!”

Amanda: “There’s no time for that!
Jem, I need you to reverse the polarity,
If this rock’s magnets!”

James: “Even with that extra push,
Do you know how much force we’ll need??”

Dex: “I could power it with this blood rig-
If we had a feed.”

Amanda: “Now is not-“

Blayze: “I’ve got one.”

Amanda: “What?.. Get up and go right now!”

Blayze grabbed Pandora by the arm.
Amanda didn’t ask how.
He ran with Pandora into the ship
As fast as they could go.

Pandora: “Alright! Where’s the feeder system?”

Blayze hugged Pandora slow.
He reached around her back and found,
Her skin flap that hid controls.
He found the knob he was looking for
And released Pandora from her role.
The knob froze her beating heart
In cryogenic stasis.
Blayze removed her vampiric feeder system
And used it as the basis-
For their escape off of Tarmish.
Connecting wires he spun.
Soon he yelled down to the rest of the crew-

Blayze: “Here’s the hose! I’m done!”
