T he night rushes over me, as the cold darkness consumed every part of me. The moon light is bight but yet it is dark. The stench of blood is pungent in the air as the breeze brushes across my face. I see them approaching from the distance getting closer and closer. The smell of blood is coming from their blood soaked claws. They soon spot me and begin to circle around me, pushing me back slowly; I am backed into a corner without even knowing it. Their eyes glow a dark red, the chill of evil intent fills the atmosphere as if it were static making the hair on my skin stand on end. The light from the moon fades into darkness; all that remains is their glowing red eyes cutting through the darkness. My eyes slowly close as I await my faith, they lunge forward with their claws first ready to rip me to pieces.
Wait! Your probably asking yourself what’s going on right, so I’ll start from the begin. Let’s see I was born… no wait that’s too far back, okay let’s see I’ll start with who I am, well my name is Will 9875. This current deadly situation I find myself in all started with a letter
from a nearby planetary shipping company.

Well of course I had to take the job, I mean the opacity to lend a hand to someone in need, and it doesn’t hurt that I will be nicely rewarded for my trouble, I thought with a grin after reading the letter. I set off to the IPS shipping Inc. Headquarters as soon as I finished reading the letter. I had been there once before about ten years ago to pick up a package from
my brother, so I knew where I was going, well at least I knew where the offices were.
I arrived at the tall office building, looking up I saw the letters “IPS” written across the building; I was in the right place. I entered the building where I was greeted like a king; I was given refreshments and was walked down the long hallway to a private elevator. “This is the private elevator for the CEO; it will take you straight to his office.” Said the young lady that brought me to the elevator, she pushed the button, and as it opened she turned and headed back to her desk.
I walked into the elevator, and saw that it had no buttons, or consoles of any kind. “That’s strange,” I thought, “Even voice control elevators have a console, oh well.” The door closed and the elevator began to move quite fast. It must be pre programed to only go up and down I thought as I waited for it to stop. I wondered what floor I would be going to. A few seconds later I could feel it stopping, the light above the door lit up and it opened.
Two men sat at a desk facing each other, looking over papers of some kind. I couldn’t hear what they
were saying to each other but I could tell it wasn’t good by the look on their faces. I stepped out of the elevator into the office and both men stopped and looked at me.
