Search for atmospheres
We were so busy wondering if we were alone, we never thought it was safer...
When the shuttle doors opened and Lieutenant Creyes was still in their suit, she knew something was wrong. They hadn't even re-compressed, the airtight seals around the visor were locked in place and the rest of the suit clung to them like a second skin. It was perfect for the outer conditions - loose ends getting caught when a migratory currant shift was closing in was a death sentence - but in the compound they just looked... wrong.
There was just something unnatural about their perfect silence and their body didn't seem quite human and she couldn't quite put her finger on it until they began to move. Their limbs didn't bend they, they rippled and some kind of liquid burbled through their lungs, echoing inside their helmet and reminding her strangely of the seaside caves near her childhood home.
Creyes slid towards her and, purely on instinct, she slammed the lockout code in and trapped them inside the shuttle corridor. They hit the door with a moist thud and slid down, seemingly unable to maintain their human facade any longer.
Or so she thought.
As she began to walk away to comm this in to the bridge, she heard an inhuman scream coming from behind her. Turning around she saw Creyes face pressed against the viewing port, the water inside their body draining from every orifice and forming something humanoid beside them.
With one final desperate cry, Creyes collapsed and the watery figure stepped forward, pressing every inch of itself against the sealed doors, trying to find a place to slip through. Her first thought was to run but her feet wouldn't move... couldn't move.
A thin line of water trailed from her shoe back to the shuttle door as it was slowly forced open.
