The screen flickered, blacked out, and then another face appeared, this one older, wiser--and, oh look, an identical incredulous expression when he saw a section of the control panel in Jonette’s hand.
“Wherever I’m going to crash,” Jonette said to him, “you better track ahead of me and clear out whoever lives there!”
“We’re trying to get a lock on you,” the man said, and then he caught full sight of her face and his own paled in recognition. “Hell! I’ll get--”
The screen blew in a shower of sparks. Oh, this was just great. Now she had no communication with anyone.
Her heart was pounding as she wrestled with the manual controls, figuring she might as well override the automatic pilot.
The emergency override wouldn’t let her, and all she could do was watch the planet grow larger and larger, the blues swirls turning into rivers and oceans, the greens into forests.
Crap! Fancy having come through the outlaw years in one piece, hunted and hunting, only to die now by some ambushing prick’s hand. How bloody ironic was that?
Several sleek, low ships bristling with huge laser guns appeared on either side of her craft. The ships kept pace with her, far enough away to avoid disaster, but close enough to... well, yes, blow her out of the sky if it meant she was going to crash into a settlement.
Sort of divert the disaster before it happened.
She just hoped the pilots weren’t too trigger happy. She still stood a bit of a chance if she cleared the settlement and landed in water or something. Mayhaps. Probably not.
Gritting her teeth, she wrestled the controls again, slamming her hand on the emergency panel. The craft slewed sideways, jerking as the emergency override circuits and computers tried to gain control of it. It veered up sharply and slowed down, and Jonette felt relief spear through her as the ship suddenly gained altitude and leveled off, skimming over mountains and then high above a beautiful settlement, all white buildings and a graceful palace that rose majestically up in the air.
The ship bucked not far from the settlement, whirled, slewed sideways and dropped, skimming above tree lines at a dizzying speed.
Strapped in to the seat, Jonette gritted her teeth and watched as a forest appeared. The tip of a tall tree actually slammed the space shield, and the ship spun crazily around, throwing her to the side.
The belt bit into her, holding her steady but so strongly that her body weight slammed against it.
And then it snapped.
Oh goody. Now the belt was as useless as the rest of the craft, she thought hazily as she was flung across the cabin to land against the control panel, and then spun across to land against the pilot’s chair.
She tried to hang on and was hit on the side of the head by the broken lever that went flying past her. She managed to hang on to the chair for stability until the craft hit something, flipped over and plummeted from the sky.
Everything passed in the shrieking of metal, pain, as she was flung around the cabin like a rag doll, a red haze that she dimly thought might have been blood--or the fires of Hell, for which she was possibly long overdue anyway--and the snapping of branches.
She didn’t know when it all stopped. All she knew was that there was a buzzing in her ears, her body hurt--oh yeah, the devils prodding her with pitchforks, no doubt--and deathly silence.
What, no screams of the damned?
Born in Victoria, Australia, my childhood was spent in a variety of places, both in towns and the outback. Now settled in Western Australia, I work as a nurse. A love of animals has me involved in animal welfare, and certainly explains why the cats hog my bed and the hot water bottle!
Reading has always been my escape, writing my dream. Horror, myths, legends, fantasy and history – there are no limits to the wonders to be found. And romance? Well, that adds the spice, hope and happiness ever after.
