You shake your head, throwing away any thoughts of letting go and saving your own skin. Emma has been your best friend since you were both too young to even say “friend” and you’re not the kind of person to let a friend be abducted and probed by aliens.
Of course, it means that you’re also being abducted and you’re probably going to get probed too… You grip onto her ankles a little tighter after watching one of her shoes slip off and fall to the ground, so very distant now, below.
“Emma! Emma! Wake up! You’re being abducted by aliens!” you shout.
“Mmm… Yeah… Abduct me, baby…” she mumbles, not really waking up.
“This is no time for dirty dreams! Wake up!”
You continue to shout at her, climbing up her legs and holding on tighter. Soon, you slip in through a round portal in the bottom of the spaceship. It closes beneath your feet and you both fall to a metallic grey floor.
Looking around, you see smooth metal walls in all directions. Well, it’s more like one continuous smooth grey wall. It makes it hard to concentrate or orient yourself.
You look back at Emma. She’s got a stupid half-smile on her face, and some drool running down one cheek. She always could sleep anywhere.
