[Comic for Monday, July 21, 2014]


[[Dex, Patty, Trish, and Fred are recovering from their shock at Socrates' news that he "hears" three Physarics outside the door of the junkyard's office. In whispers they discuss their situation.]]
Patty: Three aliens? Here? Did they "track" you...?
Socrates: I doubt it. My telepathy was weak. Maybe they tracked down Fred.

Fred: Well, *I* didn't call them. I don't even know HOW!
Socrates: It takes conscious effort, but they might be able to detect you, even if you're not trying.

Trish: Are th-they f-friendly?
Socrates: I can't tell. They're "tainted", and only recently took hosts. I can sense them, but they're blocking their thoughts.

Socrates: They're... controlling three humans, like you...
Patty: [joining Dex in glaring toward the door] That automatically makes them unfriendly in my book...
