Junior Earplug Adventures: Natural Selection (Part 25)


…Magnuss took them to a place that looked remarkably like a superfluous alcove…

…which Magnuss and Lucian were pleased to learn, from Nennigross, appeared to be of the type usually found in poorly designed flying saucers.

“What do you think we should do?” Magnuss asked her.

Nennigross allowed her eyes to wander around the tiny room.

“Well,” she said finally, “we obviously can’t stay here; there’s no toilet. So I suppose we’d better look outside, and pray that we haven’t landed on a ship crewed by starving cannibals.”

So, with trepidation evident, the threesome ventured out of the superfluous alcove…

Naturally they followed the convenient signage, which, unsurprisingly, led them into a pleasantly lit corridor…

Then, having traversed the aforementioned pleasantly lit corridor…

…Magnuss, Nennigross, and Lucian discovered…

…the desperate occupants of the flying saucer in the engine room, trying desperately to metaphorically kick-start the fuel pumps. But before anyone spotted them standing there like a bunch of lemons, the reality of the situation struck the three galactic travelers…

“The situation couldn’t be worse.” Nennigross whispered to Magnuss. “With the ship out of gas, it’ll float onwards through space unimpeded – until the wheel of eternity grinds to a halt. Death will hold dominion over all of us.”

But Lucian had more immediate concerns. He’d picked up a urinary infection in the Upper Realm, and desperately wanted to piddle.
