That night, 24 hours after the cylinder arrived, the second cylinder arrives.
It lands not far from the first one. The heat rays from the first will defend it while they create more war machines. Originally there were ten explosions on Mars. Eight more are coming!
I think of my beloved Grauben back home. We have to get out of here!
I remember that the local pub landlord has a horse and cart. Most people still don't know about the aliens.
I pay the landlord double what he asks and promise to bring the horse straight back.
