"Ssshhh," purred the shadow, "rest now, you and your friends had a
"But Cornflake, she's back there. Did you not see her?"
"She must have been covered by bits of your demolished ship,"
"You must get her, you've got to,"
"I can't, what if you leave? I have to talk to you and you're friends,"
The shadow sat next her.
"Leave? Leave? I can't even move let alone leave! Is the ship far?

"I found him..." it started to say, but Patches interrupted.
"Her, we are all hers,"
"Okay, sorry, her near the ship", it continued.
"Cornflake, oh you found her, oh thank you so much,"
"Go back to sleep," said the other one and she did.
