Hero's Call -- part 4To Link's relief, he was allowed to enter Castle City without much trouble at all. The guard only asked his name and business; he must have been bored to have been curious, or was that really his job? How boring it must be to stand there all day and watch and wait for people to come up to the gate. No wonder they didn't have anyone doing that back in Ferryar Forest. Thinking of Ferryar made Link wonder if the darkness that Dew mentioned had reached his home yet.
"Watch where you're going," someone in front of Epona scolded. Link brought his attention fully back to the streets of Castle City after that. It wouldn't be a good first impression if he ran someone over. He observed many shops and homes along the main street of Castle City, and there looked to be plenty more down the side streets. Maybe he'd get a chance to explore in more depth later.
Link wasn't the only one enthralled with the drastic difference of Castle Ci
Rogue Alien -- part 4"This is what we got," Kevin showed me his stash of alien tech. We'd gone to an abandoned garage after agreeing to build a new ship for me. It was going to take time, but I was okay with that. My only concern was getting the Omnitrix before Vilgax did. Not to mention that building a new ship would allow me to install a much better cloaking device good luck tracking me now, Plumbers.
"It's not much," I commented, surveying the garage's contents. I figured all of this equipment must have been stolen by Kevin; he wasn't the paying type.
"Where did you get all of this junk anyway?" Ben asked, meandering among the unique mechanical parts. His tone sounded accusatory to me.
"I'm borrowing it," Kevin looked right back at Ben, adding more smoothness to the palpable lie. His eyes and Ben's stared in to each other for a good long minute. I couldn't understand why they stayed around each other if they clearly were not close buddies.
"Achoo!" Ben sneezed overdramatically. My heart skipped a
Rogue Alien -- part 3When I came to, I first noticed how humid and sticky the air was. My mouth was dry and I was sweating. How and when did I change back to my human form? I tried to lift my hand to wipe the sweat from my forehead and panicked when I found it tied behind my back. Attempting to keep calm, I observed my surroundings.
Dim lighting obscured most of my view, but what I did see heightened my nerves. The wall that I was tied to was red and black with orange splotches here and there. My bonds were sturdy, chain-like ropes I assumed they were designed to withstand my abilities. There were no windows or portholes that I could look through. Determining my location in my present situation was not an option. I had to find an exit of some sort. Nothing pleasant was in store for me here, I knew that.
"Awake now?" Chills ran down my spine. That was the voice from earlier! Whoever it was had destroyed my ship! I struggled against the bonds on my wrists. For the first time since I got into my line o
