This story started in Invasion


A raven arrived with a pictonote* asking for anyone of fighting age to meet, as the people from Earth had to be thrown off their planet. Now, as Daniel and Alexei were heading into town, they were being careful as the enemy were flying all over looking for targets. They didn’t care who they hit. Daniel wondered why the Earthers didn’t just want to be friends. They could have learnt so much. He was curious as to how they managed though with only two arms.

As they reached the town, Daniel and Alexei dived into a bush as the sounds of flying vehicles closed and went overhead. Three screamed through and fired their destruction sticks. Another building to burst into flames; it was the building they were all supposed to meet in.

Daniel stood up on all three legs. The town was on fire. Now, there didn’t seem any way they could be defeated.

*For the sake of this story, and the planet it is on, a pictonote is like a pictogram but written on paper. Very much like the Egyptian form of writing.

    1. It is true, AnElephant is first
      I love his story of a song and a dance
      The picture he knows
      As it totally shows
      With his mention of being able to see France


  1. Ooh, It seems like Earth is a tougher nut to crack than anyone expected. That’s a compelling beginning to something longer. I like it!
