Moving On Up.

Post by ROU Killing Time » Tue Dec 11, 2012 9:14 pm

Smitty had lived a wholly unremarkable life.

A life filled with maxed-out credit cards with exorbitant interest rates.

A life where he always managed to find himself on the wrong end of every business deal.

A life of canned vegetables and frozen single-serve meals.

A life of loneliness.

But now, as he lay dying he felt his soul lifting up and out, seeking a new life ready to be born and populated with his recycled spirit.

The hatchery pods of the Blog'Nglaren invasion fleet were ripening just outside the orbit of Saturn.

In Smitty's next life, he'd be on top.

As long as he learned his lessons in this life. Otherwise, he'll just end up peeling do-krach roots on endless kitchen duty while the rest of the Blog'Nglaren wade into battle.
