Alpha was the name of a small planet near the galaxy of earth. This planet
was so small that the inhabitants could live unrecognised of other living
beings in the universe. The capital of Alpha was Kryslor a beautiful town
between the red desert of Merty and the blue fields of Esgabon. The red
desert of Merty was a very large desert that consisted of red sand and red
stones. In this desert there lived terrible creatures that looked like giant
worms that lived under the sand and only came out when they smelled food.
The blue fields of Esgabon were a landscape of meadows of blue grass with a
few Krierly trees. Krierly trees were trees whose stems looked like a helix.
In the centre of Kryslor there was a wood of Blinky trees. Blinky trees were
coloured trees that gleamed at night. When the full moon shined these trees
glitter golden between every petal. In the middle of the Blinky tree wood
there was a big building. This building was the Central Stade Building an
institute of space. Here in the biggest building of Kryslor worked all the
scientists that looked into space. The building looked like a giant space
ship and had a big museum in the ground-floor where people could look at all
inventions and technologies. The rest of the town consisted of one-family
houses with flat roofs where the inhabitants had a big garden. The
inhabitants of Alpha were called Motaner. Motaner were sea living creatures
that had learned to live on the land. They were very intelligent and could
develop very high technology. One of the greatest scientists was Whisper a
mussel with a silver shell. He had the job to look on the earth to find a
way to communicate with the men. Since a long time he observed the earth and
he learned that there were many languages. He found out that there was one
language called English that was spoken in the most parts of the earth and
he tried to learn this language. If he learned this language, he could tell
the men of earth that they came in peace. An expedition to earth was planned
and they wanted t!
icate with the men to exchange experiences and technical inventions. The
Motaner knew that the men were very aggressive, dangerous and frightened.
They knew that the men sometimes do things they regret later. If the Motaner
came to earth they want to tell the inhabitants that they came in peace and
so Whisper learned their language. One night Whisper ended his work and
taught the language to the other scientists who wanted to do this expedition
to earth. In a conference room all scientists met and told about the
expedition and about the language. Whisper was one of the travellers but
there were two other scientists and three astronauts. Intellige a blue whale
and Carry a lobster were the other scientists. Carry was the headmaster of
the institute and the leader of the expedition. He learned the new language
very fast so that they could start the expedition in a few weeks.
Whisper and his wife a goldfish with glittering scales had breakfast when
his snake phone rings. The Motaner used extremely long snakes who worked
like the telephone on earth. Whisper went to the phone and said: “ Hallo?
Here Whisper?” “ Here Intellige. Carry said it’s time. Meeting in one hour
at the Central Stade Building for the last control. Be on time please. Till
soon.” “ OK.” Whisper hang up the phone and ended his breakfast. Then he
went out and glided so fast he could to the Central Stade Building. Whisper
enjoyed the Blinky tree wood while he glided through it. When he arrived in
the conference room, the controls began and three hours later he sat in the
shuttle. Carry, Intellige and Whisper waited for the astronauts. When the
astronauts came the countdown began. A voice told: “ Last control!
Instruments?” The pilot said: “ All OK.” “ Machines?” “ All OK.” “ Course is
OK. The countdown began at ten. Nine. Eight. Seven. Six. Five. Four. Three.
Two. One. Ignition. Good luck on earth.” The voice disappeared and the
