Ross crawls up out of a bog or something, because some college students had a party and left their garbage in the water and made a ruckus (Smith, maybe, and some other people, Toms and Marks, etc) and the last two, a couple, fucking around in the bog, get gobbled up.
There’s something left behind by the college people, something giving away the name/location.
So Ross leaves the bog and wanders to the nearby college.
Trott is some sort of science student, up late that night, and has the door of his rented house open, and the light on. sitting on the couch, with something on tv that he’s not really watching. Forensic Files, maybe.
And then the porch creaks, and the light gets blocked out. He leans forward and looks outside.
Ross is there, dripping wet, naked, dark eyes and hair, green and very obviously Not Human.
So then Trott lets Ross live there, and somewhat tries to stop him from eating people.
“Can I eat your neighbor?”
“NO, Ross! You can’t- you can’t just EAT PEOPLE.”
Ross has no concept of the morals because Humans Are Food.
Meanwhile, Smith is the only one wondering where his friends disappeared to. Enlists the help of Sips, a former grad student who works as a local record store shop owner.
