With a dry mouth and feeling colder than normal, the danger Stephen was about to face finally hit him. Venturing out in Exilon 5 daytime would bring with it new dangers. This would be the first time the Indigenes had tried anything like this. He could almost feel his translucent skin blister at the very thought of it. He imagined an uncomfortable build up of heat beginning in the pit of his stomach, then spreading to the rest of his body, like an inferno. Is that what it feels like? He had never stayed in the sun long enough to find out.
All previous attempts to make contact with Surface Creatures had always been at night, protected by the cover of darkness. If successful, this mission could change how the Indigenes lived. Everything had to go according to plan, so he prepared very carefully. Time might be short to get the information he needed before a Surface Creature noticed him.
