Chapter 16 Part 2

Fred had been feeling a little under what passed for the weather on Mars. What with Wanda dying and everything, he thought it might be a good idea to see a doctor. So he went to see the same doctor that Wanda had. One look at Fred and the doctor said, “I’m checking you into the infirmary for further... Sign in to see full entry.

Chapter 16 Part 1

Chapter 16--Destruction of Martian Colony 101 The sudden cessation of motion woke Wanda up. Then she heard John say, “We’re here, at last. Boy, I’m all in. I sure can’t wait to hit the sack. I’ll probably sleep in ‘till noon.” Fred said, “Just don’t forget that tomorrow we resign, or rather, later... Sign in to see full entry.

“What is this place?” asked Blake. “As far as I can tell, it’s some kind of residential district,” said Stark, “One look inside will verify it.” Stark saw a single room. Some kind of weird contraption stood next to the door that he had just come through. Stark could see where chairs had been... Sign in to see full entry.

Chapter 15 Part 3

Up ahead, Stark noticed something lying on the ground. At first, it looked like a shapeless head. There was what looked like blood splattered around it. At first, Stark thought it was human.

“So does mine,” said Blake. “You can trust your gauges,” said Stark, “Mine says the same, and it makes perfect sense.” “Huh?” said Parker and Blake in near-unison. “Don’t you see?” asked Stark, “This is where they took off their gear." Stark pointed at the dust. There was some confusion in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Chapter 15--Explore Six days after the destruction of Martian Colony 101 Stark pointed down at the footprints in the dust. “These lead down the tunnels, and that’s where we’re going.” “Lead on,” said Blake and Parker almost in unison as they headed off down the tunnel.

Chapter 14 Part 6

“Here’s the last of the bags,” said Fred, “They’re going to slow us down, so we better start heading for the top, now.” “Times a wasting,” John agreed, “Let’s go.” And so they started back. Wanda dreaded the long walk ahead. It was going to be uphill all the way, and with their loot, it was going to... Sign in to see full entry.

Chapter 14 Part 5

Wanda had a very refreshing rest. She noticed that Fred and John looked much better, also. They all had wafers and water for breakfast. Fred had the idea to fashion some cups from the wafer packages. After their meal, they took off again. They walked down a few more levels, where the city seemed to... Sign in to see full entry.

In the store, Fred found some packages of wafers. The packages were made out of a foil-like material. Fred sniffed one of the wafers. It didn’t smell too bad. In fact, it smelled kind of good. He nibbled a bit of the wafer. It tasted good. What the hell, he munched the whole thing. Whatever... Sign in to see full entry.

Chapter 14 Part 3

At regular intervals, a series of lights dotted the sidewalk, about a quarter of which still worked.
