BEN ARCHER AND THE MOON PARADOX

CHAPTER TWELVE - RESISTANCE

 

[...]

“Hold it!” one of the police officers yelled from the civilian car behind them.

 

“Mesmo!” Ben sobbed, unable to keep up with the alien’s long strides. His vision went blurry and he wiped at his eyes in a hurry. But the edge of his eyesight kept on darkening.

 

What’s wrong with me?

 

“Mesmo!” he called again, his voice sounding far away as if he were crumbling into himself. He couldn’t focus or feel the movement of his legs.

 

Mesmo turned to face him, and Ben vaguely registered the alien’s eyes widening in shock. “Ben!” he yelled. “Resist!”

 

Resist what?
