Something Buried #1


"Captain; Mr Chance has just sent me a message from his tank."

Longström groaned loudly. "Ok. What does our resident psychic have to say..."

"Sir. He says there is something buried here, and we should stop immediately."

The captain sighed.

"Alright. All stop! Geez, I hate psychics. When he's ready, bring him up here. I want to know why he thinks that there is something 'buried' here, when we're sixty light-years outside the plain of the ecliptic, in extra-galactic space."

"Yes sir."

"Oh, and Jenkins? Remind Mr Chance that I prefer him to wear clothes, not absolutely nothing..."

    Chuckle, chuckle :-) I love the weariness of the captain and of course the last line.

    Love that sense that the captain knows the psychic's onto something but that it's going to be such a *Long day* :-)

    The thing is, I really want to hear it off the psychic now, I need to know. I also love his name!
