He kept going. So did the fighter. The fighters fired. He tried to crouch. He had to not be seen. He really wanted to get what he had found to star fleet. Star fleet needs this information. That seemed unlikely.
Jess tried to crawl though the ground. He tried to endure.he tried to remain in one peace.
He saw a Vila. He ran into the complex. The fighters lost him. They fired on the villa.he had to dodge the falling ceiling.
He ran though a window. He rolled to the ground. He hoped that maybe he had one uped for a few seconds .he tried to use it to there advantage.
