4. Nightmare-ish planet

 

As they all left the prison in a range rover, Gwen kept telling herself this was a bad idea.

For too long had she been on the wrong side of the law, and she thought that becoming one of the good guys were going to become her greatest challenge yet. Already now she felt a need to take the leaders hostage, as they shared their carriage, and to think of the grand amount of money she would get on each head.

She looked into the emptiness that was the land of Holonday, thousand miles of pure desert, hours in between each small town, the killing heat. This was a nightmarish planet.

Suddenly one of the leaders turned to her and spoke:

“This is your team,” he said and handed her a picture, “we'll leave the introductions up to you and them.”

It was a picture of a large crew in front of a magnificent spacecraft.

“When will I meet them?” Gwen asked and looked at the slightly fat Human.

“When you're ready.” Was all he answered with.

Hours went by, she almost fell asleep in the expensive range rover, when she finally could see something further ahead. They approached a town, almost enough to be a city, as it's the largest set of buildings on the entire planet, not counting jails. The 'city' had tall, sand coloured walls and rusty gates, that made an ear-irritating scream as they opened up to the crowded streets. The prison was the only place she had seen on this planet, and she actually thought it consisted of nothing but desert and prisons.

All the buildings they passed by seemed so primitive, so poor. And to think these people knew about FTL-spaceflight. The streets were filled with guards carrying assault rifles, the display made her think that jail wasn't as bad compared to this.

The range rover didn't stop until it reached the spaceship where they were going to spend the next few days at, which Gwen spent mostly on sleeping or being unsure of her decision.
