Wee Alien - Part 14: Ygg Tests the Beamer

©Karen A J Rinehart

Ygg sits and looks at the pretty bright green light that is hovering near where Eyak was sitting when the shutter bursts open and in walks Eyak carrying a plate of food. "What is your problem," questions Eyak.

"I was hungry and I just thought of food and pressed the button," replies Ygg.

"If you were thinking of food, why did I find myself in the galley?"

"Well, I was thinking it would be nice if you would get me something to eat," responded Ygg.

"You what?" asked Eyak. Ygg decided that it would be better to show Eyak than to try to explain it to him any longer. Putting his hand in his pocket, Ygg pushed the button while thinking of Eyak getting him something to eat. The bright green light appeared and poof, Eyak was gone again.

Entering with another round of food, Eyak walked over to Ygg and said, "So, you are hungry, you poor starving little wee. Here, have something to eat." Eyak poured the food all over Ygg and told him to stop playing with the device. Ygg sat there pouting.

Looking out the viewer, Eyak realizes they are passing over planet Ostun. Turning towards Ygg, he says, "I really think we should have started with Ostun first. It is closer to Lala Land and it's the obvious place they would be."

"You always want to be right," whines Ygg. "I never get to be right."

"You are wrong most of the time, Ygg," says Eyak.

"That is only because you think I'm always wrong," says Ygg.

"Are you going to whine our entire pirt?" questions Eyak.

"No. At this point in time, I'm going to pout and have something to eat. Want some?" Eyak ignores Ygg and takes one last look at planet Ostun and shakes his head in disbelief.

Queen Terrensya senses that something isn't right. She places Taranis, her oosh, on the naved and leaves for her secret room. Arriving there she inserts her gold ring and the door opens slowly. Entering she notices that the emerald is flashing in the crown and walks over to take a closer look. "Ygg," she says. "Whatever am I going to do with you?" Pressing the pearl below the emerald she says, "You must not use the device for personal gain." The green gem stops flashing and the queen exits the room and returns to Taranis. "Come, Taranis. You must be famished."

Wee Alien - Part 13: Lednew meets a Redips

©Karen A J Rinehart

Wanting to work on the ship, Eedyar walks over and touches it to see if it's cooled down after the trab baked it. "Ow," says Eedyar aloud. "The adnerb is still hot. How long before it cools down?" Walking away from the ship and back to the safety of the rocks grumbling, "It will be bicons before it cools down."

Nerak and Wals search for food without much luck, when something catches Nerak's eye. "What was that, Wals?"

"What? Where? I didn't see anything, says Wals.

"Over there by that rock," says Nerak. "It looks like a Srats."

"Can't be," says Wals. "Srats don't live on this planet." It's obvious to Wals that there can't possibly be any other Srats because there doesn't seem to be anything to eat and there certainly isn't any fruit.

"There must be something we can eat somewhere, Wals," says Nerak. Wals just shrugs his shoulders and follows Nerak back to the adnerb. Both are hungry and really dejected because they were unable to find anything.

Arriving at the adnerb, they find Eedyar fast asleep in the rocks. "Wakey, wakey," says Wals as he runs up and down on Eedyar and jumps from a rock right in the middle of his stomach. "What in the ---," says Eedyar almost breathless.

"We are back," says Nerak. "We weren't able to find anything and I became very tired, so we headed back. Any luck with the adnerb?"

"No. Wasn't able to do anything with it. That trab sure baked it good. It's still hot. I wonder what trab tastes like," says Eedyar while listening to his stomach growl.

Lednew is awakened by a unknown noise in the cave. Looking around, he notices a red glow on the walls of the cave with flickers of yellow. "What in tarnation is that?" Noticing movement outside the cave, he gets up to check on it. "You can shut your eyes now. Stupid trab. I've never seen a species so ignorant."

"About time you got here. I wasn't in the mood nor am I in the habit of having to call you. What's with all the trab in the cave?" Boarding the Redips, Lednew complains, "You expect me to ride without gear? If you cause me to fall off, it will be the last of you." The Redips and Lednew head off towards the mountains as Lednew tells the Redips, "Make sure that those Trab don't pull that again next time I sleep in a cave. It's creepy."
