Whew! It’s finally out!

Earth is a mess.
I travel around the woods looking for food and for the safest places to stay. I’m quite good at both. The pecan grove I’ve found is by far the best place I have seen on this ailing world.
The sight of a suspicious cloud ends up altering my life forever. I should have listened to my gut, but I didn’t. When something drops from the cloud, I run for my life. Unfortunately, I don’t run fast enough. I feel a sting in my leg and then my stomach churns as my vision dims.
The sight of bars has me blinking a few times and then covertly looking around. I silently scream when I realize I’m in a cage.

Now that we have what we came to Barpol for, we are heading back to the spacecraft. A loud commotion from the sell-block nearby piques my interest. Have these aliens found something of great interest or is it just another fight among bestial beings?
I scan the rough crowd until my gaze lands on her. My heart pounds wildly as she gains my full attention. I’m not leaving this planet without the little human. She is mine to take care of—mine to protect.
