The Apartment #250


Against the cosmic background, the alien form shimmered and changed colours, its eternal spectrum sometimes fading, making the stellar colours paint the blackness vividly and breathtakingly; sometimes brightening, making the vast energies generated by the immense and potent engines of the universe appear dim and vapid in comparison.
It was hard to say, now, if this thing, this alien being, was human sized, as it had appeared to them before, life-sized and nearby, or gigantic, vast and huge and far distant, like the galaxies and dust clouds that pulsed and glowed and offered colour and energy to the dark.
