Intro Three: Storm

The lightning flashed in the night sky, illuminating the thick clouds below. Sam stared out the window and counted slowly. The thunder clap reached the station, and Sam guessed that the flash was roughly 10 miles below. The lights in his quarters were off, not for any safety measure, just to avoid any glare on the window and provide a clearer view of the storm.

If they had been on, he probably would never have seen it. A tiny shifting of the clouds, visible against the flashing storm further below. It could have been mistaken for an air current causing the clouds to churn from their resting place, except that, as he watched, it took a ninety degree turn and started towards the station.

"Shit." Sam reached for the siren.
