Captain Cosmic's NotesEdit
Never has anything more worse happened to me. I remember the normal day, coffee, cleaning out the chemical tanks, surgical mask on, watching the others around me do their jobs, and then suddenly, I heard the yell of one of my buddies, Shawn: "FIRE!". I froze in complete anxiety, I then turned around to see that there was a blazing fire behind me. I could already tell that someone had been engulfed due to the screaming of "Nos!" from several of my co-workers. Next thing I knew- BANG, some canisters that held radiation blown up, spreading the fire even more. I stormed up to the walkway above the fire, trying to not trip or get caught in an explosion, but my worst fear came true. All of a sudden, I was blown back by a large explosion that blew through the walkway. I realized I was trapped, then, I heard another "BANG", and I was knocked off the walkway. I landed in one of the tanks that wasn't being scorched by the flames, and, to my dismay, I was in a tank still full of chemicals. I was about 99% sure I was going to die, and I blacked out. Next thing I knew, I'm in this bed. The damn thought of that day makes the hair on my neck stand up.
