I sped among the humans, blood flying as I did so. Soon all that was left was a circle of bodies. Running back inside, I shouted to the  house to move. As it did so, I ran in to the room where they had put Zander. They looked up at me as I entered, blood staining my mouth and my eyes glowing.

"The humans," I spat, "are gone and we have moved." Zander nodded weakly. "What is happening to him?"

"Altex 49" said the doctor. I stumbled out of the room. The same illness that many of my Lii'arc friends had died of. I clung to the banister, and that's where Anju and Alanna found me minutes later, still in the same rigid position, staring in to the distance.

The End
