The Leap  Reply with quote  

She showed the little one the stars and told their names.
She told their sad stories.
She told of a return.
She told of The Death.
She told of the new life that sprang.
She told him of the plants.
She showed him their books.
She read sweet small stories of their Great Heroes.

The Little One went out under the night sky and looked up, He looked at her and said slowly, Mmma, Mra. Mra. Mru. Mru.

She was chilled. She looked up. The Red Planet was at it's zenith.

She was cold. She closed her face and wept. Their texts. Their texts.

They were on the wrong planet.

This was. This was. The One of Illusion.

They both stared at each other. The one that was and that one that was not.
