|He longed to return home.|
Stranded ! “I am not cut out for this world” the furry creature said to himself as he looked up at the stars from his lonely cave, longing to go back to his home planet from whence he came, where his people lived in peace and harmony, each caring for the other, where war was unheard of, unlike this dreadful planet where the inhabitants had a penchant for killing senselessly even their own, which to him revealed insanity in their genetic makeup. Since that terrible crash here on Earth years ago in the bleak, cold and indifferent Himalayan Mountains, he managed to adapt quickly to the deadly cold and survived. Unfortunately for him, he was spotted by some members of an expedition party and since then was hunted relentlessly, but managed always to escape his predators by use of his superior intelligence. Now, homesick and lonely, he wanted to die. He couldn't go on like this, being a hunted creature when he was a respected Hero on his planet, so that day he made a final decision to end it all! Cursing the two legged Earth creatures that seemed to rule the planet, he was about to throw himself over the high cliff when he heard a loud humming sound above, a familiar sound and his heart leapt for joy, for there above him, hovering in the cloudless sky, was a circular shaped craft- a familiar sight to him. One of his own. He looked up as a shaft of green light beamed down on him and he was lifted bodily into the hollow shaft beneath the space ship, which then rose vertically and disappeared into the cloudless sky. Back on his home Planet, He was given a hero's welcome being a high commander of their exploration space fleet and was told that a hunt for him and his crew was organized by the Space Federation of Planets when he did not return to base as schedule and fortunately for him, the searchers had managed to pinpoint his location on the search monitor and picked up the emergency signals emanating from his craft. He told them that indeed he was fortunate to be alive and was glad to be back among his own and related his horrible experiences on this hostile planet. And a plan was made to visit this island Earth. Thus ends the tale of the creature called the” Abominable Snowman”! THE END Tweet
