RECAP from previous Episode 4b:
S/he/it was going full speed at me and before I could duck


. . .
Episode 5a: CLOSE ENCOUNTERS

…I was down. Dunno what hit me (I mean how is it that s/he/it could be like a missile?!) but there I was on the ground, only feeling pain, pain, pain. I couldn’t think of anything but the pain. I couldn’t think of trying to get away, figure out what’s going on, what to do, even seeing where the pain came from. I screwed my eyes shut, as if that would save me from harm.
