Drabble - 100 word story - on Alien Architecture (The Drabbler)
To Reach the Liquid Sky

Fendoria was impenetrable.  Thun Pedori flexed his antennae with pride, and gazed  at the glorious tubes which soared skyward.  Travel between the pods had never been so safe.

A sudden movement caught his eye.  Swarming Nakai rammed the transparent tunnels with awesome blows, but the tubes simply flexed and stretched.  They ripped and tore at the fabric with fearsome jaws,  but could not breach the impermeable material.  Pedori laughed.  No more would his people need fear the Nakai.

Two moons later, his laughter died with him when the Nakai learned to twist the tubes into knots, trapping the helpless Fenri.
