Stars and cars 2

"I was an astronomer. Studied stars, looked for earth-like planets, that sort of stuff. But one day something appeared in my telescope. Now... you're probably thinking it was an alien ship or something. But it wasn't. It was the corpse of a massive alien being! A creature so vast it had moons orbiting it! I don't know what it was. Some sort of ancient being, maybe the remains of an ancient god? Who knows. But soon the government was covering up the whole thing. The images were confiscated, and I was told never to divulge what I saw. Of course, no one would believe me, so I never really bothered. But now... knowing things like that lurk out there... I can't help but keep one eye on the stars..." He looked up at the stars again. "You never know what's lurking out there..."

Carson followed his gaze up " i understand....and you are wise to always be on the look out...not all things come in peace" she didn't say it like she was teasing at all. Mostly cuz she wasn't. She looked back at him " more humans should be like you" deciding to change the subject she gave him a friendly smile amd pointed to a star brighter than the others " tell me what you call them...the planets" she knew their names but she wanted to hear what. NASA called them.

"Good," Vargas wiped the sweat from his brow, "Now... we need to drive the dead dude's car out into the desert. I know an old abandoned mine we can hide the car." He looked to Rayne. "Do you mind driving the dead dude's car? Just follow us in Hoffman's car and we'll get rid of the body and the car in the mine."

Rayne nodded " sure...lead the way" she got to her feet and dusted off her butt. She made a mental note to get a ride to gas up her truck when they got back. She raised a brow and nodded to
"Hey...were did carson and the other guy get off to? Hes not like freak right? Shes safe with him?" she asked but quickly remembered what had happened just moments ago. " well i guess the real question is is he safe with her hu?"
