I now know what the ticking sound was that was freaking Conner out the other night.… It was the sound of his imagination crashing into scary images and then melting into a puddle of gibbering I’m scared and I’m home alone goo.
I can’t say as I blame him.
The Clockwork Robots were created by a spacecrew from the 51st Century. They were created to make repairs on the ship. When the ship was damaged, vital machinery was destroyed so they began to use the crew’s body parts instead.
They had strange smiling faces and long black hair for their trips to France but were actually glass humanoid figures operated by space age clockwork technology. They would break any clocks in the room to disguise their
arrival and would slice open the parts of people where the organs could be found by their blades and saws in their hands.
I take it back, Conner. I would have been hearing imaginary ticking and having visual hallucinations to boot.
