Stop bloody shooting or it'll see us! Do you want that?.....Just stop shooting, god damn it, are you nuts?

There were three giant spheres... rolling around... it's eyes... the pupils locking, then switching to another set... The waves that incinerated them... The smell. Skin, hair... burnt......."
