Another adventure of Emri and Zithri upon the recolonization of Earth….
Tears coursed Emri’s cheeks as the first load of crops exit the field. It was something he had dreamed of seeing for all of his life. It represented the fact that they could survive here, versus the ship that still orbited above.
‘It’s beautiful, isn’t it?’ Aaron asked.
‘Yes, it is.’ Emri smiled. ‘God has truly blessed us and we will give our portion back to him.’
‘The women have created a feast to celebrate the harvest.’
‘Tonight’s fire will be bright.’ Emri nodded to where they would stack the bales, add the first harvests of vegetables and fruits.
