She was in a ditch, but she wasn’t naked; She just had a flat tire. She only hit the culvert, the tire bursting, after she saw the mother ship hovering over me. I don’t blame her for that.
Meanwhile, I am the naked one.
She crawled towards me, avoiding the floodlight above exposing my nakedness.
“You OK?” she whispered.
“Burglesnark,” I mumbled trying not to cry.
“English,” she demanded.
(I’m speaking English,) it came out “Oveldorfcringing.”
“Screw this,” she yelled and got up to run
(Watch your ass,) It translated to, “Snarklefrump.”
Too late, they took her.
