FLASH AND SHORTS # 418030201 – Innerverse

Terrifying and deafening, a high whistle sounds through the dark room. The only light comes from a red light that blinks restlessly; on - off - on - off...

"Indispensable stuff... DUCT tape," Timothy Sweek laughs seemingly unperturbed. "I closed the leak in your suit Attilio. You can breathe quietly again..." Tim hangs the tape back on the belt of his own suit and searches in the dark for his commander. "He will make it; his space suit caught the heaviest blows," says Sweek to the barely recognizable shadow that stands in front of him.

The flashing red light reflects nervously in the helmet of Kenny Britto. "Well, then the three musketeers are still in the race," grunts Commander Britto as he watches how Attilio Gaudant is resting exhausted on the heavily damaged control panel of the space cruiser.

"The race?" Sweek asks without comprehension while he carefully places Gaudant on the floor.

"We are still living Sweek," sighs Britto, who becomes increasingly annoyed by the lingering whistle and the endlessly flashing red light. "We still have a chance to cross the finish line together; with the three of us."

"Oh," Sweek replies uninterested.

"For heaven’s sake, first put out that fucking alarm."

"I would not know how..."

"Smash it; kick it, whatever. I don’t care; just make sure that this fucking noise stops and that damn lamp does not flash anymore!"
