Little bit of writing I did as storyline intro practice to keep me on my toes. I might go somewhere with this, but ultimately, idk. Too new to tell. Let me know whatcha think peeps

"Open your eyes."

The sound comes out of nothingness in a brilliant burst and is instantly gone again.

"Open your eyes!"

There it was again. Louder now, almost violent, but it doesn't hurt so much as it tears away at the black fabrics of the void around you while the universe constantly trembles. There are other sounds, too. Are those sirens?

"Scott, open your damn eyes!"

There! Your eyes fly open and you sit up with a gasp to see the vibrantly beautiful woman standing above you. She looks scared and a little worse for wear, but seeing you awake brings a sigh of relief. Providing an orange aura-like light behind her, you see the roaring flames threatening to tear apart your ship.

Your ship!

You remember now and spring into action. You're aboard the Flippletwik, an intergalactic cruiser, and you're its captain, but who knows for how long. That trembling you were feeling wasn't just trembling, but violent turbulence that reminds you how you were knocked out: you're crashing.

"Not on my watch!" You shout, only now realizing how cheesy it sounded and that you just yelled in defiance of yourself. Who are you? You're Scott Deathridge, and this will not be the last thing you do.
