Read “Fleeing Danger With Rez,” the previous installment of this story here.
A sudden explosion violently rocked the stolen shuttle, disabling it and throwing everyone from their seats. Rez quickly checked the sensors and the engines and shields had been badly damaged and were offline.
Krizt, Reena, Rez, and C5 hurriedly transferred the thawed but unconscious man from the crate to Rez's docked ship. With the airlock shut, they separated from the doomed shuttle. Krizt noticed an escape pod launch from the wreckage of the Knave, and hoped that the two guardian knights escaped.
Krizt activated a distress beacon. She knew it was a long shot, but they needed help. Seconds later, Rez’s ship was suddenly and unexpectedly pulled into faster-than-light travel. Reena looked around at her injured friends. “Hang in there, everyone. I don't know what happened or where we’re headed.” Exhausted, she whispered, “Hopefully it won’t be long.”
Kritz’s eyes opened to C5 excitedly beeping. The ship shuddered into orbit above a small planet covered almost entirely in tall grass, hiding a pockmarked surface of cave holes. Rez barely managed a rough crash landing. They needed to find shelter and aid quickly.
As they exited the ship carrying the crate man, a figure emerged from a tunnel hole. The shaman healer gestured for them to follow, as if expecting them. He led them through the small community of curious villagers to a small earthen room, where they saw a sandstone basin filled with an iridescent blue liquid. He motioned to them to climb into the basin. Krizt immediately felt the liquid start to heal her wounds. She couldn't believe their luck.
But just as she began to relax, a commotion of the villagers caught her attention. The man from the crate opened his eyes. The shaman looked at them gravely and gestured towards the tunnel entrance, where he watched two robed and hooded figures approach. Krizt felt her heart rate quicken, helpless in a healing tank, wondering what was happening outside.
