Green Sister 55

As the machine stopped, GS leaned over toward Mark and said, "Something's not right here. My danger alarm just went off, but just lightly. Be on guard. I don't know what's going to happen."

He nodded to indicate he heard her.

The door opened and the rope ladder snaked out of the door. The driver leaned back and looked at them.

"Okay, this is it for me. Someone will be waiting for you at the bottom. I have to get back to work."

Mark and GS clambered down the rope and stood looking around as the machine retracted its legs and flew off in the direction they had come from. The first thing GS noticed was the quiet. Apart from a low throbbing coming from the orb, there were no sounds. Children dressed in black played in front of their colorful houses, but there were no sounds of laughter or words. It seemed almost a crime to disturb the silence by talking, so GS leaned close and whispered in Mark's ear.

"This is strange. Have you ever seen children this quiet?"

Before he could answer, a small flying machine, shaped like a cigar, came from the direction of the orb and hovered near them. A door opened in the side, steps came out and Lee walked down to the ground.
