Swallowed: Part Two

“You’re right, Spock. We’ve been swallowed,” said Kirk, shaking his head and still looking out at the strange green sight.

Then Uhura asked, “But what swallowed us? And how did it get here, in the middle of space? And why did it swallow us?”

Kirk turned to Uhura. “Good questions. We must found out the answers!”

Spock saw something else out of the window. “Sir, I see something strange. Is that a heart?”

Everyone on the bridge stared up at the window. The heart was huge, and a rainbow of colors: blue, green, yellow, red, purple, and black. It was beating like a mad and hungry ape.

As the Enterprise got closer it started to shake with the heart’s vibrations.

Kirk shouted, “To the transporter room. Follow me, Mr Spock. Uhura.”

In the transporter room, Scotty was taking a nap. He woke up with a start as Kirk blasted through the door.

“Wh….Wh…what is it, Sir?”

Kirk jumped onto the transporter platform. Spock and Uhura followed.

“Beam us down, Scotty,” Kirk commanded.

Scotty rubbed his sleepy eyes. “Och, aye, sir. Whatever ya say.”

In a few seconds, Kirk and the crew were on the beating heart. They could hardly stand. It was like being on a giant trampoline. The beating noise was so loud, Spock covered his pointy ears.

Kirk got out his special Analyzer machine and jabbed it into the squidgy surface of the heart. The machine made a beeping noise and its lights flashed. Kirk handed the Analyzer to Spock. Spock read its small screen.

“Sir, we were right. This is heart. And the animal whose heart it belongs to is the Black Hole Space Blob.”

Kirk and Uhura gasped. They had read about the Black hole Space Blob in space school. They thought it was a myth. Ancient stories told of spacecraft being swallowed by the blob and disappearing forever.

“What are we going to do now?” shouted Uhura above the loud beating.

Kirk sighed. “We must return to ship and find a way out.” He flipped open his communicator and shouted, “Beam us up, Scotty”
