As the figures moved closer to him – two of them – he realized that they were like humans, only a lot shorter. They looked extremely muscular but all the muscles on a short body looked odd. It was like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s muscles from his Mr. Universe days, cut out and stuck on Macaulay Culkin as a kid in Home Alone; not a great combination by any stretch of imagination. The second figure which appeared to be walking behind the first one was actually stuck to the one ahead. They were connected at the shoulders, with the left shoulder of one connected to the right shoulder of the other. Both their heads were visible to someone in front but not the entire body of the being at the back. As far as the physical features were concerned, they were exactly the same but the figure on Mark’s right was hazy. Mark at times felt he could actually see through the figure on the right.
