Dawn at Last

Is there no sun on this god-damned planet? Nothing but snow, darkness, and the slobbery snarls of some unseen beasts stalking me. What a hell to crash into.

I fumble through the deep drifts, my body nearly frozen. The beasts should have already killed me. Maybe they are just watching the strange alien. Maybe they are waiting for me to die. I collapse, unable to continue.

Suddenly, I can see. The glowing sun peeks from the horizon, I feel its warmth. The creatures flee. I throw up my arms in victory.

“Dawn at last!”

Then, my spacesuit starts to melt.
