The chosen words or situations for this week’s prompt -https://reinventionsreena.wordpress.com/2023/01/12/reenas-xploration-challenge-263/ from Baba Vanga’s predictions for 2023.
Clara loved staring at the stars, they were gorgeous, sprinkling the sky like sugar on her doughnut. It was only a few years ago she landed on Earth, living with another family.
Time passed more slowly here, so three years were like three days at home. It took a while to get used the twenty-four hour day. Now it was like she never was on her home planet.
She missed home, but the strangest difference was babies were born to parents. Not in a laboratory. Her first memory was rows of cots, watching her fellow children grow like buds on a rose bush. Only moved to parents when they were old enough to talk. It was strange watching her earth family bring a new baby home.
They couldn’t do anything but cry.
There were algorisms on her mobile, which allowed her to talk to her pod parents. So alike, no difference at all. They loved her, but in a different way. It was all about learning to be like everyone else. The purpose of this trip, for all aliens, to see how other cultures lived.
She preferred this way, yes earth had issues, but there was something about being with a family, watching your sibling grow, which made sense of change. She felt a tilt, night suddenly turned into day.
A sign, time to return home.
They had decided to invade, to show humans how it should be done.
