The Cosmic All


Recommended Posts

Just as first scout Niedemheier stepped out of the craft he gasped. Not because of the ammonia-filled atmosphere but because he saw something so beautiful that he couldn't help but walk towards it.*

Niedemheier had become a cannibal six months earlier when Captain Klaus gave the go-ahead to murder the weak and sick surviving members after the rations had been depleted.

They ate well...until it was just the two of them. Luckily for Niedemheier that he was an insomniac. Even more so that he forgot the screams.
