As Derek came closer to the crater, he could feel a burning sensation, like from a volano. He wondered how he could retrieve the body, but it had to be done, somehow. He looked back at Graham, who was standing from a far distance now.

Red Planet, Part Six

Derek helped Graham to his feet and onto a rock. He then brought out a bottle of water and handed it to him, then sat down too.
"How are you feeling now?"
"Just a little dazed. I...I can't remember anything."
Graham took a gulp of water then shook his head.
"What happened?"
Derek did not want to distress Graham so decided not to tell him about the alien or about the task ahead, until the time was right.
"It's a long story. But we need to keep on moving."
Within an hour, Derek saw the yellow crater that Rahndor had mentioned to him. He turned to Graham.
"Wait here."
"Alright."
As Derek came closer to the crater, he could feel a burning sensation, like from a volano. He wondered how he could retrieve the body, but it had to be done, somehow. He looked back at Graham, who was standing from a far distance now.
Just then, a voice boomed from the crater. It was Rahndor.
"I don't have a body, but listen to me very carefully and I will explain what needs to be done."
