“They went in those rocks.”

“You sure?”


“Finally, aliens.”

They carefully crept up, silently, one slow step at a time. As they drew nearer, they dropped to their bellies and slid in like snakes. As the aliens shot out of the rocks, the alien hunters jumped to their feet and gave chase.

But the rabbits were to fast.

As the boys grew up, they became more serious about aliens. They were the first to discover the true of whether or not Earthlings are the only intelligent life in the Milky Way.
