Writing Prompt: Holiday and Planet

Salaris took one last look at the destroyed planet from her comfy seat on the spaceship. She couldn’t believe after all this time, her home as she knew it was destroyed. She had spent years with some of the best teams on the planet doing everything in their power to save their home. It didn’t work. The only thing they could do in the end is make sure that everybody was safely escorted off the planet before it imploded. 

Of course, not everybody wanted to listen. There were some who chose to make fun of them and tell them they were crazy. She was sad for them, but she did everything she could possibly do to make them see reason. She decided not to dwell on the negative. She had persuaded quite a few to join her in safety. A good majority of them even helped build the ships needed. 

Sadly, they weren’t out of danger yet. They needed to find a new planet to call their home and soon. Varya felt that Earth would be the best option. Salaris wasn’t fully on board, but she had to agree. Earth was the only planet in existence that fully matched their own planet. The only problem is that the earthlings on Earth were so hateful. She did countless hours of research. All she saw was earthlings hating other humans. It was depressing, but she wanted her people to live.

It took many weeks to reach Earth. Salaris took the time to make sure everybody was versed in everything they needed to know to adapt properly on Earth. She even re-educated herself on things. She found that while there were many hateful earthlings, there were also ones full of passion and love. She knew that if she could find a way to connect with them, her people would have a solid chance. She was hopeful. 

It also turned out that they would be arriving on Earth during some holiday. It looked like a weird holiday to her. Why would anybody want to celebrate a year ending with explosions in the air? She just couldn’t understand it. I guess she should be more open minded. She was sure there were many holidays that her planet had celebrated that the earthlings would find weird. 

“There you are, Your Majesty.”

“Oh Drogan. I do not feel that it is appropriate to call me that any longer. I have nothing to rule over.”

“You do. We are all your faithful followers. Not having a home does nothing to change that.”

“You are too kind to me. What would I do without you?”
