I was devastated when I crash-landed on this planet. I was stranded. Zuzuthi sheltered me, taught me the language. Call it xenophilia, if you must, but we fell in love. To prove to her progenitors I am an evolutionarily fit mate, I must face the giant four legged beast, unarmed. I need not kill it, only survive. The beast snarls violently splattering me with putrid saliva. I dash into the forest feeling its hot breath. Darting between the trees, I pull ahead. I dive into the lake and swim to my waiting Zuzuthi, who joyfully envelops me with her tentacles.
