It was her eyes really, that convinced me. Even though I didn’t know her, and she didn’t know me, there was hope in those hazel eyes.
And she had done the research, checked me out on every software ever made….I figured she did kind of care about me,
even though for me it was all new….. something told me I needed to get on that flight, the last one leaving Earth.
Within seconds I put all my grieving aside, and yelled, “Let’s go!” We jumped up, joined hands, ran for the gate, and the doors of the shuttle…..
just as the glass of the airport bay began exploding……
It was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Narrator: This couple did get to know each and are doing very well on the new planet Beryl.
It is 5 times the size of Earth with only a few thousand people. It is a little colder, somewhat like Norway.
