Title: "Savannah on the Moon""
The day had reached its end. The animals were fed,
the family asleep, and Khali was finally left to
watch the sun set just beyond the crater in peace.
He made his way to a tree that sat a few short
miles from home with the softest patch of grass
beneath it. Years of laying in this particular
patch had created a nook perfectly fit for his
unique form. The rising mist of the freshly
developing spring nearby brushed his face and
cooled his skin with every breeze.
Looking up he could see the faint glow of the
Vonbraun as it hovered just above the night sky.
He wondered if it knew he could see it, or if it
even knew of his existence. Was it capable of
learning more than its assigned lessons? Could it
forget things? Could it lie?
His supreme honor Oliseo told him and the others
that the Vonbraun had made a pit stop there on its
voyage to another planet.
He said it had ventured from an entirely different
universe, looking for life on this other planet a few
light years in the other direction..
But we live on a moon..
Talk about lost.
