Book DescriptionWhen a secret government agency loses an otherworldly specimen, three innocent bystanders are forced to deal with the consequences.
"The cargo!" the thought flashed across his mind. Feelings of dread and guilt washed over him. "No, no, no, no," he repeated as he rolled down the driver window and quickly lifted himself out of the overturned cabin. He raced to the trailer door, slipping the whole way. The outside of the truck had the appearance of a common tractor-trailer in order to throw off suspicion, but he was carrying a top-secret cargo. He said a quick prayer as he unlocked the door and swung it open. The inside contained tanks of glowing liquids, endless tubes, and monitors displaying information he couldn't begin to guess at. At the very center of it all, however, was a large sphere shaped metallic tank, and it was leaking.
"Shit!" he whispered as he ran towards the sphere. He had no idea what he was looking for, but he searched anyway to see if he could find a way of stopping the leak. It was too dark to see clearly, he had to lean in close. He brought his face close enough to trace the leak to its source when he realized that the sphere wasn't metal, but glass. The metallic coloring belonged to whatever the sphere held inside.
Suddenly, he felt something on his leg. He glanced down to see metallic liquid completely covering his boot and it was beginning to slide up his leg. He jerked backward, but the foot covered in the liquid was held as if encased in dried cement. He jerked harder. His free foot slipped from underneath him, and he landed hard on the wall of the overturned trailer. The foot in the liquid stayed firmly fixed, and the liquid continued to climb up his leg.
