Time was ticking away slowly...
Zaine looked at the clock. It read 1.10pm and the news reader was on about the financial collapse and the current double dip reccession we are
experiencing... ''Tedious news'' Zaine thought...
1.11pm. Zaine watched the televisions in the production room go fuzzy then blank out to produce the image of a strange looking humanoid sitting
behind a desk being projected on T.V.
The control room at this moment in time was in a frenzy, trying to fix the picture, to link up the back-up transmitters to get the picture back.
Suddenly, sound came from the speakers as someone spoke, "Ill ask you again... Where are you from?" the voice came from a hidden person who slowly
walked into viwe of the picture. This person was interrorgating the figure sitting at the desk.
"Im not of this planet. Im Eridan." the creature spoke. The way it spoke, it sounded like it had a bubble in its throat, yet, also a rougth husky
sort of voice.
"Are you alone?" asked the interrogater.
"Yes, Im quite alone." said the creature dryly.
The room around Zaine had fallen silent as everyone watched.
"Why are you here?" asked the man.
"You know why. My race sought help from you. We shared infomation and you took advantage of our agreement." the creature stopped talking.
"Advantage you say? It wasn't us who abducted humans!" cried out the interrorgateor.
"It wasn't us who shot us down in 1942 in Penkridge Staffordshire. It wasn't us who poisend 'US' in 1950 over in Bahia Blanca. Even recently,
you shot down a peacefull routine fact finding mission near your American colleagues town of Barstow." the creature said, breathing heavily.
The interigator walked behind the creature. He then switched on a light that illuminated the creatures face.
It had a large cranium and gaunt cheek bones.
Its nose slightly protruded from its face, yet the nose bone visibilly ran up the creatures fore-head.
The eyes had a fish-like look to them.
It had a faintly grey lens and black corneas.
The interrorgator placed what resembled an oxygen mask over the creatures face.
The creature achknowledged and adjusted the mask to make it fit its features. You could hear it faintly wheezing.
"Im sorry about that. But we're going to have to re-negotiate our agreements. We'll get in touch with your Eridonus race" said the interrorgater
as he walked towards the camara and switched it off...
The normal computer programe kicked in and left a flabbergast news reader staring strait at the camara.
Zaine smiled as the director put up the technical error screen.
