#3. The Larva's Secrets (2)
1: I need to find it fast... or something horrible will happen!
2: 'It?' You mean the thing in the NASA carrier?
3: What will happen?
4: If I don't find it soon... there will be many sacrifices...
2: What kind of sacrifices?!
3: Only I can control it... That's why I need to go...
4: We'll drive you in our car!!
1: What's going on here?
2: Does NASA know how dangerous it is?
1: My name is Radah. I came from the Planet Kiruk.
2: We made a stop on Mars during our long journey,
3: but apparently, there were already Earthlings there.
4: They attacked our spaceship,
5: and since we are weak, we had no real way to fight back, and many of us died.
6: I was the only survivor...
7: They fired on you without any warning?
8: After that, they loaded me into the NASA shuttle...
1: Then you escaped once it crash-landed?
2: Except... when I ran, I lost my vitellus.
3: So I postponed my growth and went back to get it, but I was too late...
4: What's a 'vitellus?!' Why does that mean there will be sacrifices?!
5: Our yolk...
6: After we hatch from eggs, we Kirukians continue to draw nutrients from our vitelli for a period of time as we grow.
7: So just like a baby fish, you're the larva, and that dangerous thing is your yolk-sac.
8(top left): Larva
right: Oil Globule
bottom right: Yolk-sac
bottom left: Yolk
9: However, the big difference between myself and earth fish is that I can't absorb my vitellus. Normally, it's meant to protect us, but now that it's lost its "defense instinct," it's in an uncontrolled mode of attack...
10: I-I don't believe this! It's just a yolk-sac, yet it's that dangerous?!
1: Function-wise, it's similar to the whit blood cells that Earthlings possess.
2: It attacks and destroys anything that threatens its core.
3: Y-you really know a lot about Earth! How did you learn all that?!
4: I learned about Earth from Renia...
6: Oh yeah, she did major in biology...
7: Radah, it seems like you grow at a very quick pace... Does the same apply to your vitellus?
1: I never thought acquiring a live alien would be this easy!
2: It-it isn't the whole thing, though...
3: We're running an emergency search for the other part.
4: Hm? What's happening?!
5: It's moving!!
1: I feel so ashamed! The human race is taking its history of violence and plunder into space now!!
4: I tried to learn from you as well... But I was overwhelmed by the vast volume of knowledge you possess. Hiroto... You're clearly different from the other two.
5: Are you not an Earthling?
1: I'm an Earthling! I was born and raised here...
3: While my mom was also an Earthling, my father came here from another planet...
1: I'm sorry, Radah... I feel so sorry for your family... as an Earthling, I'm ashamed. I want to apologize to you on behalf of them.
2: Hiroto. It wasn't your fault.
3: I'm just glad to know that there are gentle humans like you on Earth as well.
1: NASA - Kennedy Space Center
2: ID please...
3: We came here to talk with the people in charge.
5: We're a film crew from Planets.
6: Did you make an appointment?
7: No! But this is important! So just hurry!!
1: Tell them we have important information about the shuttle crash and what NASA is looking for right now!
2: What's wrong?
4: Hmm... OK, fine.
5: Send them to Room EX-6 in the C Wing.
6: But listen carefully!
1: I want you to capture them before they make it there.
2: Then put their car and all their belongings in the vault...
3: Wh-where are you going?!
1: What's wrong?!
2: Come back, Radah!!
3: Waah! What is that?!
SFX: BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM
4: Stop! Come back!
5: You're going about this the wrong waaay!
6: But Hiroto... my vitellus!
SFX: BWISH BWISH BWISH
7: It's begun moving!!
3: Heheheh... Everything's in place now.
SFX: CLACK CLACK CLACK
4: The credit from dissecting the world's first alien will all be mine! Now I just need to shut this film crew up...
2: Radah, are you OK?!
1: If you know where your vitellus is, then guide me there!
2: It'll be too dangerous if you go alone!
3: Is that your vitellus?!
1: Radah, why has it gotten so big? Is something wrong?!
2: It's OK...
3: I'm going to... try and absorb it...
