Green Sister 52

"Where on earth are we?" Mark asked, looking around him. "And, where do you think Lee is?"

"I don't know," GS replied, her voice low. "I don't even know if we are on earth any more." She pointed to the horizon. "Look at that."

Coming towards them was a large mechanical-looking structure, walking on four spindly, jointed legs. The flowers waved in its path, but none appeared to get crushed. When it was about twelve feet in front of them, the machine stopped, a hatch on its side lifted and a man's voice said, "What are you two doing out here? You are crushing the flowers and the chief is not going to be happy."

Mark and GS looked at each other.

GS found her voice first and said, "We're lost. Can you tell us where we are?"

"Oh, botheration," the man said, exasperation evident in his voice. "Not more of you. Come on over here. I'll take you back to the impound and the chief can explain everything to you." He let down a rope ladder while Mark and GS gripped hands tightly and walked over to the machine.

Geez... they just took the rope? They didn't run the other way? What if it's a death sentence to crush the flowers???
