Han Storm: The Chronicles of Han: Part 14 – Engaging Chlophilia
Whilst The Cosmos is the playing ground for endless variety, survival of the Self will be the nature of physical life.

“Damnation to all of you!” I cursed them in Ancient Altneght. Grabbing hold of my arms with my hands, I hugged myself to try and stop the feeling of being on fire from exploding everywhere.
“Hold him!” Panam warned, looking accusingly up at Major Heraldt.
Aquil stationed himself behind me, lifting me into a sitting position, restraining my arms and torso.
Kin-Allan knelt down on my legs so I should not kick out.
“Has your condition to do with the alien ship we almost collided with?” James inquired, squatting down in front of me so he could watch my eyes.
I nodded, managing to put a word to the motion that sounded like a hiss rather than a ‘yes’.
“Who are they?” he asked the next question.

“I do not know” I panted at him, hanging my head, too exhausted to care any longer.
Panam pointed at me. “He is your concern now.”
James stood up, giving the go-ahead with a nod of his head.
Panam found another vein, injecting a cold-feeling substance that immediately soothed the burning inside of me.
“Prepare for entry . . . ” I heard James instruct the crew as darkness enveloped me . . .
