- Watch out, one is behind you! -
- Got it! - Gruntz answered.
He scrutinized the rubble, but saw no one.
Who would have thought? These creatures were cleverer than the law
He turned the thermovision camera on.
It’s barely alive, I just have to finish it off, he
a crawling parasite.
He moved carefully towards it. You never know. During three years
of cleaning this planet, it turned out that these creatures are
cleverer than they seemed. They were familiar with the art of tricks.
Their eyes met and he saw fear in the parasite's eyes. He crushed
its head. The brain flew out of the skull.
- It is so fragile. -
Disgusted, Gruntz moved his antennas.
still it poisoned the environment of the entire planet. It murdered so
many species of plants and animals!
It was the highest time to eliminate the parasite – a human.
