SF Drabble #357 “Emergency Landing”

I feel really terrible, and I’ve started coughing up blood. So that’s a pretty good indication that the pile is leaking.

We came down hard.

Before the radio gave out I got some garbled chatter from Callisto that they’d heard my S.O.S., but I don’t know if that means they were sending someone. I don’t know how long it would take if they are: too many variables.

I don’t really even know if it matters at this point. There’s a lot of blood coming up, and if the crash site is too hot, they might not even bother to land.
