CHAPTER 3 – Third part

this_healing_sleep_by_nightsongws-d58oyfm

When I woke I was lying in a large transparent tube made of something similar to glass and I was soaking in a clear blue gel. Startled, I trashed my arms blindly seeking purchase, and I went under, losing my breath. Blood throbbed in my ears. My vision swam. Then a pair of strong arms grabbed me, and made me resurfaced. With my head out of the gel, I gasped and restarted to breath, but I was still spooked. Miral, the gentle dark haired alien that I’ve already met before in the laboratory in the desert, was there beside me, speaking in a calming voice –All is well.

She felt her breath and pulse slow, and couldn’t stay above the surface of the gel anymore. She couldn’t combat, couldn’t talk.
