We Stroll Into an Alien Town
They ran through the fields of grass, tearing through as fast as their tired legs could manage to carry them. They’d been doing far too much running lately for either of them to actually generate any kind of respectable speed but they were making progress. The town was luckily pretty close to the forest and as far as the drone was able to see, it didn’t look like there were going to be any guards at the town itself, or at least there hadn’t been many and the reports had suggested that the few that were in the town had probably been the ones that reported to the gates on the second fence.
They managed to cross the fields of grass without any trouble, and then proceeded to immediately duck behind the first house that they ran into, glad to finally have some cover. The one part of their escape plan where there was nowhere to hide or cover from any attacks by the guards had been covered. That was definitely a big win, especially since they'd all only suffered a few bruises and cuts. Nothing that could prove fatal at least. Now they had the much easier task of trying to sneak around the town without being spotted by any of its inhabitants and make their way to the warehouse that the supply transports made their way into.
Their best bet was to try and get on one of the incoming transports, try and take just enough things that it wouldn’t be immediately apparent they’d stolen something, and then get on board one of the empty transports that left the place. If they got really lucky they might even be able to get on board an outgoing one which still had supplies in it.
From what the drone had been able to pick up, they knew that occasionally a couple of those transports did happen and those were presumed to be ones headed off to other alien posts after having dropped off a portion of supplies at this particular prison. Or at least that was the theory they’d come up with, they would be finding out the truth eventually.
After they got on the truck, they didn’t really get to plan out any further, the drone was simply not capable of flying out beyond the city walls and they really didn’t have any idea what was out there. Well, they did have a plan of what they would have to eventually do, but all those plans would have to be made one they knew what the outside was like and where on Earth their prison was even located.
Aria kept her hands on her lips as they moved through the town, her message loud and clear. There was no telling which house was occupied and which house was not and the last thing they needed was to run into someone who would raise the alarm, and shooting at the innocent family members of the guards was simply not an option. Unlike the guards actively trying to kill them, these particular aliens would be unarmed and they couldn't fall to the same level as the aliens.
Aria slowly led them through the town until they came to a small structure in the garden of one of the larger houses. This had one large door covering an entire side of it. All sorts of strange paraphernalia were scattered about it, and a few tools hung from mounts on the wall. The door was open and it didn’t look like anyone was inside. The house itself was also a good few feet from the structure so Aria led them all inside it.
