The

massive

freighter had

hovered over

our heads for about

a few minutes before

landing in front of us and

allowing our long lost team of

explorers to exit the vessel

in what the inhabitants of the one

planet known as Earth had named a station

wagon before the commander of

the team got out of that device

and kneeled before our ruler

who ordered him to rise

and welcomed him back

to the planet

that happens

to be

his

home

but that

was before

his teammate had

walked up to us with

young ones of their own and

when the youngest of the young

ones got a good look at us, she

hid herself behind the legs of her

female parental unit and said in

a terrified voice, "I don't like it here,

Mommy! I want to go home! Please make

them take us home, Daddy! These guys

are scaring me!", which made us

realize that they had

been on the planet

Earth for too long

in spite of

their one

task.
