First Contact: Render and Marduk's conversation.

Updated: Jun 22, 2023

The sun had set, and the temperature was beginning to drop rapidly. The blood on the bandages of Render’s wound was dried and cracking, pulling his leg hairs as his muscles flexed as he sat down under a tree. He winced in pain as he took a deep breath.
