There were ten of us who stood at the docking bay.
Our names were Green, Yellow, Red, Blue, Lime, Cyan, Green, Black, White, and Gray.
We went along our normal routine trying to do our task.
The workplace was calm and safe, but that would not last.
Black reported a dead body near the cafeteria.
The discussion room slowly descended into a mass hysteria.
I wondered, “who could be the person who was dead?”
Lime broke his silence, and told us the body was Red.
Red was a good friend of Blue, and that is why he cried.
His teary eyes then turned angry since a killer was inside.
With venom in his mouth, he accused Lime.
“I know that you hate Red, you must have committed the crime.”
Lime defended himself by stating that he was in the security room.
He was with Cyan as they shot asteroids to avoid certain doom.
Stepping up to the discussion, I calmly said,
“Blue, do not let emotions affect your decision. We know that Red is your close friend.”
Blue insisted on his decision and demanded Lime to be gone.
He wanted Lime overboard, so we could get work done.
Lime became scared but started to reason out.
He was no match for Blue who began to shout.
Lime defended himself by stating two facts.
Blue did not have evidence that he did the act.
He was also with Cyan shooting asteroids.
Therefore, he concluded that Blue’s reasoning was null and void.
Blue could make the same argument, but he had no evidence.
Lime might have hated Red, but we could not deny his innocence.
Even if Lime killed Red, he should be punished and sent to jail.
After a short deliberation, we let cooler heads prevail.
No one was voted out, but we will not let Red’s death go in vain.
We just have to open our eyes because the impostor remains.
It just hurts to carry on when Blue is not fine.
Currently in our ship, we are only nine.
I made a decision to team up with Yellow, so we won’t be picked off.
One death is too much; the murders have to stop.
For security reasons, we decided to be together.
Until we can uncover the killer.
The atmosphere changed in this ship, and everyone became distrustful.
Especially Blue, who took Red’s death personal.
We carried on with our tasks because it is a must.
However, I am pretty sure there is an impostor among us.
