I was regaining consciousness, and only barely aware of my surroundings. But I could hear that voice speaking to me, quietly yet sternly.
I blinked my eyes. Once, twice, three times. The blurry image in front of me began to come into focus.
I could now clearly see that I was in the presence of something not from this world. I'm not sure which characteristic caused me the most concern. Was it the green skin? Was it the violet eyes?
Interesting! I could hear the words but the creature's face made no movements. Was it speaking? Was I just hearing its thoughts?
You must stop resisting!!
I was becoming more aware. And my focus was drawn to the brown leather straps that bound my wrists to the table I was laying upon. Straps that I was unconsciously pulling against. I took a deep breath and relaxed. Where was I? How did I get here?
You are still resisting!!
The memories started to come back to me. I had been sitting at the computer, enjoying my evening cocktail of Grey Goose and Red Bull. I had just started to construct a new puzzle cache, using an idea that I had come up with out of the blue shortly after I began caching. But I guess that "out of the blue" wasn't "out of the blue" enough since I had seen other caches use the technique. So I had started thinking about other ideas when.... And then I drew a blank. I don't remember what had happened next...
I must insist that you stop resisting!!
I'm trying to relax, but those brown leather straps are starting to dig in, and I think my hands are turning blue.
Others that came before you have resisted. Argynys The Great resisted. meandmydogs resisted. SuperGoober resisted. jim52 resisted. componenx resisted. cachbefound resisted. Even Frivlas and Lil Checkers resisted. You must not resist! Obey my order!
There was a bright orange flash, and then...
Sunshine!! The bright yellow sun was beaming down on me, seemingly suspended in the lovely blue sky. But where was I? What had happened? Was it a dream? And then I noticed that I was grasping a container tightly in my hand. It wasn't a dream. I remembered the deep violet eyes of the alien. And I remembered his order. I quickly placed the container in the closest hiding place I could find, and then just as quickly I made my way home, even driving through a red light in the process. That container is still out there, somewhere. Locating it should be child's play. Just don't resist.
