Something was wrong, but Cybil’s mind felt as if a fine-tooth comb had scraped over it.
This was her fifth night on Koala Island, attending the annual conference on human science.
From the onset, something felt out of place with the serene surroundings. Her room always yet felt as if some presence shared the space with her.
She had searched the drawers to satisfy her thoughts that nothing was hiding in there, yet the discomfort stuck.
Now she was beginning to forget what she was saying in the midst of a sentence. It had been totally mortifying to forget her name during an introduction. Thankfully, the program would end in two days.
Sinking into the soft mattress and staring up at the orb-like shaped ceiling with pupils, her focused gaze saw pin dots of lens rotating.
Rising for closer inspection, the orb opened noiselessly and two funny looking humanoids appeared with lightning speed before she could squeak.
Mesmerized, all she felt before sinking into inky oblivion was the touch of a cold object at the base of her neck.
