Austin Miller looked upon the alien war lord. Being the first human upon Mars was overshadowed by the shocking discovery of extraterrestrial life. The aliens so expertly masked their true intent. Capable of interplanetary flight, they thought themselves superior. Resistance was unthinkable. But then, they had never met Austin Miller.
Suddenly, the ground beneath the knight gave way. With the noise of air being expelled, the knight fell downward, disappearing within a fraction of a second. The humans were momentarily stunned. Gathering their wits, they cautiously moved across the incline to where the ground had caved in.
From a prone position Austin peered into the hole, fearful of the ground caving in under his own weight, which, in the moment, he was thankful that his weight was far below what the knight weighed. He could see little within the hole; not even the knight in fact. It seemed as if the earth had opened up and swallowed the alien whole.
"Yo, 42, are you all right?â€ Austin shouted.
"Yes,â€ the knight answered from the darkened depths.
"I canâ€™t see you, itâ€™s too dark,â€ Austin said. "How deep are you down there?â€
"Twelve meters, roughly,â€ knight 42 said. "This is not a good place for a Purrian knight to be.â€
"Earthling Austin,â€ Watcher said. "My sensors have detected the presence of Tobian metal below us.â€
"Say what?â€ Austin questioned.
"Please send Watcher down here,â€ knight 42 said. "I have need of its light.â€
Austin rolled aside, allowing Watcher and the other satellites to enter the hole, which they barely fit through. The satelliteâ€™s glowing lights soon illuminated an immense cavern. Through the opening Austin could make out an object within seven feet from the top of the hole. It appeared to be metallic, flat and smooth.
"Lower yourselves though the hole to the surface you see,â€ knight 42 instructed. He was unseen, standing somewhere off to one side of the metallic looking object.
Reluctant at first, Austin hesitated before carefully climbing into the hole, instructing the remaining three humans to stay above ground for the time being.
The metallic object was in fact domed, circular and hollow sounding as he walked carefully from the hole to an edge of the object where the knight stood. There was a ladder resting against the object. He climbed down as the knight held it steady.
A few wide steps took Austin away from the object to the center of what appeared to be an immense underground cavern. He stood still and looked at the object. In a mind twisting realization, he recognized the shape of a Tobian spaceship. His thoughts were further choked as he looked around and counted a total of five spaceships, all the same size and shape.
The spaceships sat forlorn looking, covered by thick layers of dust. They looked frightfully cold, menacingly threatening.
The sight of the vessels was overwhelming. The thought of them being alien spaceships hidden away on Earth seemingly like the auxiliary fleet on Tobious hurt Austinâ€™s head. His mind was reeling with thoughts of an invasion, thoughts of thousands of human hosts being hauled off to their fates halfway across the galaxy.
"How?â€ Austin exhaled, unable to say much more.
