Legal Alien: Minah's story

«13
This is the story about Minah, a girl from space.

She landed on earth a late evening. Perhaps by accident, perhaps sent on a mission.
31283543386_24d8d9104f_b.jpg

She landed in a meadow on an island, not far from the beach.

So she made a fire.

And she began to fish.

    Wait a minute! There's someone else.
    Hello. Who are you?
    31187480142_04c7b140e1_b.jpg

    I am Zuha. This is the library next door.
    31331437875_7e857f4a20_b.jpg

    Look at that. Zuha likes to read.
    30509136674_8d2cb067c5_b.jpg

    That's his house, by the way.
    30962741910_8e2e8716c4_b.jpg

    It's a little...minimalistic.
    30962737370_9ac5acb335_b.jpg

    But there is a proper gaming computer.
    31187475562_289823c18f_b.jpg

    So that Zuha can properly lose at games.

    I am amused. I like the simple language of the story. Also Zuha -- why you have windows so small???

    This is Minna's home.
    30512218583_ccb96df562_b.jpg

    Minna's home with its giant telescope observatory.
    31175714252_8f99aaa030_b.jpg

    The house is tiny, but efficiently furnished.
    31204867971_14429e6ed2_b.jpg

    31204869021_e5f9f53cc4_b.jpg

    Ah, human food!
    31204868641_5b715ec58a_b.jpg

    Let's go to the city and try more human food!
    Maybe Minah will meet someone nice there.
    30542232213_e256b73d85_b.jpg

    "Hello, I wish to inquire about this plant chair here."
    "It's an art display and it's not for sale."
    31205809362_84b7af4144_b.jpg

    "You're an alien! I know all about your experiments!"
    30542232153_da67b5dc37_b.jpg

    Minah hurried away. But she could feel the people around her staring.
    30542228993_9fb00f2f59_b.jpg

    How about the food?
    31205802952_1ef771ab4c_b.jpg

    AAAARGHHHHH!
    30527484834_0652e2bb44_b.jpg

    This was a truly bad idea.
    30542226053_5d3e112e20_b.jpg

    Minah ran all the way home.
    31205809202_24beb0ce34_b.jpg

    This place is not a friendly place for aliens.
    30542231953_645e637f1e_b.jpg

    They don't like the way I look.
    31205809102_d2470124d3_b.jpg

    Minah wished so hard to not look alien anymore and suddenly...

    Look! The humans have come to pay Zuha a visit.
    31339650896_ebdbe66f87_b.jpg

    "Welcome to my humble abode!" Zuha greets them.
    31339650666_c3948b83c8_b.jpg

    The lady in green stage whispers to her husband: "Just smile and go along with it."
    30554363644_35f5eac86b_b.jpg

    Zuha cooks the best human food he knows: beans and sausages. He is certain the humans will appreciate it.
    But two of them are busy sucking air out of each other. A most confusing activity!
    31339650406_5ccae4562c_b.jpg

    "Hello, I am Bella", the nice lady in red says. "It's very kind of you to invite us."
    30554363284_e89b43c64f_b.jpg

    But her husband is suspicious! And now the other two are laughing in the background.
    Zuha feels his courage sinking.
    31339649976_a7ce26efc8_b.jpg

    Oh, no.
    31375970185_d79755e608_b.jpg

    "You don't fool us. Not even with the beans and sausages."
    31339649746_ae633c0574_b.jpg

    Just then, the lady in green lets out something that...smells...!
    30554362984_7749a5e09c_b.jpg

    This was not a good idea, Zuha thinks to himself.
    31339649496_9c95519c1c_b.jpg

    He goes out into the garden and starts building on his rocket.
    I'm going to go home the minute I have finished this, he convinces himself.

    Human food. It's strange.
    At least pineapples are sweet.
    31395933585_162b842b63_b.jpg

    And the small humans are kind.
    31252010972_254f5dc91d_b.jpg

    They love listening to stories about space.
    30574633244_c1ac2fa1d9_b.jpg

    Minah takes a walk around the area and finds a strange house.
    30574633124_6196d2f230_b.jpg

    This must be what the humans call "books". They're heavy, but they smell nice.
    31252010752_c3c26fa5de_b.jpg

    Look, at the back there is a little garden!
    31252010652_e3f681690c_b.jpg

    Beautiful red fruits!
    31281239061_e6b212b7fd_b.jpg

    Minah throws a coin into the fountain.
    31252010662_d371a23a2e_b.jpg

    I can feel that something good is going to happen, she squeels.
    31252010502_3421433bba_b.jpg

    Just a few minutes later there is a phone call.
    "I got the job? Oh, thank you! Thank you!"
    31281238711_0a28a192fb_b.jpg

    Huh? Wait a minute...
    31281238931_5d5a002919_b.jpg

    That looks like the mailboxes at home. How strange.
    31281238611_c9ae12eec6_b.jpg

    Why is there a space rocket in the garden?

    Aha! Time to go worky worky!
    31252012612_c30990b791_b.jpg

    "Hi there, receptionist person! I am Zuha and I have come here to work."
    But the receptionist seemed to ignore him.
    31026967240_7685246f62_b.jpg

    "Good morning and welcome to Futurelabs. I am Senior Scientist Park and I will be your mentor here."
    30588650553_c634c512ed_b.jpg

    "Good! Yes, I am ready to infiltrate the humans!" Zuha exclaimed.
    31252012442_372ca4e721_b.jpg

    "Erm, that's not quite how it works."
    The receptionist lady gave Zuha a suspicious look.
    30588650433_5c6f6825c4_b.jpg

    "I think I made a good impression, but these humans are a little difficult to understand sometimes", Zuha confessed to the Inventor.
    It appeared to agree.
    31252012352_33e3d5332c_b.jpg

    - After a few hours of experimenting -
    "Noooo!"
    31252012292_c75ca10cd5_b.jpg

    "What are these hot things? Get them off me!"
    31252012262_1ce3b48edc_b.jpg

    "Use the fire extinguisher!" a colleague shouted.
    "Oh, that's much better", Zuha sighed.
    31026967170_db12131940_b.jpg

    "Oh, um", Zuha said as his new colleagues gathered around. "I'm sorry. I seem to have set myself on fire."
    31395934695_45f03a1370_b.jpg

    Everybody ran outside.
    31297502431_d5832c1665_b.jpg

    This really wasn't a good start.
    31395934305_0248a2076e_b.jpg

    Only one colleague remained inside.
    It was that receptionist.
    She didn't seem to panic much.
    How odd.

    Hmmmm.. what a mysterious receptionist. It made me laugh when everyone ran outside (Zuha included) AFTER the flames were put out.

    Minah was so excited to go to work for her first day.
    30634970643_5d1d68c18e_b.jpg

    But then one of her new colleagues set fire to himself!
    31297636592_69ee9ba407_b.jpg

    He was truly a little...different.
    "...I was telling the Inventor to crank it up too 100 and all of a sudden there were flames..."
    31252011762_11e5ba1fab_b.jpg

    "The poor Inventor!" Minah exclaimed.
    "The Inventor shouldn't have heated up like that!" the man shouted.
    31395934205_a0a19248b8_b.jpg

    "Perhaps you just shouldn't override standard protocol on your first day at work", Minah suggested.
    The man looked at her in silence.
    31395934145_3a7ec4d8c5_b.jpg

    "Do you know who I am?" he said. "I am Zuha, Senior Rocket Scientist. I invented robots..."
    31395933865_9f2878252d_b.jpg

    But Minah interrupted him with a yawn.
    31395933915_7a21dd10d0_b.jpg

    "I'm sorry, I have to beat my highscore in Caramel Crush now", she said and switched on her phone.
    31395933965_46e8ce2699_b.jpg

    Her colleague stormed off to the showers.
    31395933705_2a953cd0e4_b.jpg
  • belpitabelpita Posts: 1,377 Member
    This streaming water thing is such a great invention! Zuha thought. Why don't we have that at home?
    31252011152_744e5b45ea_b.jpg

    Time to get some of that human food in the tummy.
    31395933615_6a9842814c_b.jpg

    "Um, hello. Aren't you supposed to be my mentor?"
    31252009452_d7a17f5841_b.jpg

    "I mean, wasn't there a somewhat rude lady sitting here just a moment ago?"
    31359737886_ce2249a520_b.jpg

    "They degraded me to receptionist because I didn't keep my eye on you and then you set yourself on fire! That's what happened!"
    30588646593_068a0434f3_b.jpg

    Oh, the receptionist lady is here now!
    Zuha was most confused.
    30588646243_4bcbb0f59a_b.jpg

    She introduced herself as Minah, visiting researcher from Windenburg.
    "Seeing as we're going to be working together I think we need to establish some ground rules."
    31359737596_71c09ccae3_b.jpg

    "First of all, do not set fire to yourself."
    30588646093_fb0fd8f89f_b.jpg

    "Oh, haha!" Zuha giggled. "That was just a test. You know, to check the fire alarm."
    31252009052_f004c9ff97_b.jpg

    The first proper task of the day was to create fake food.
    Humans were truly contradictory.
    Why create fake food when there is sausages and beans?
    31252008932_723ef9b1b7_b.jpg

    "Make sure to put lots of those lovely sausage flavours in there!" Barry the lab assistant commented.
    "Won't forget", Zuha smiled.
    30574630584_505b138b96_b.jpg

    "How are things going?" Minah asked.
    "He's doing swell!" Barry replied in Zuha's place. "Lots of sausage flavour!"
    31026961270_880226fe46_b.jpg

    "Don't mind Barry", Minah whispered. "He's very fond of..."
    30588645283_955cb40bc4_b.jpg

    "Ah, the smell of sausages!" Barry exclaimed.
    "Quite", Zuha agreed.

  • belpitabelpita Posts: 1,377 Member
    Days at the lab passed in a quiet fervour of experiments and failures.
    Mostly the failures were on Zuha's part.
    30588647063_852b4c2b95_b.jpg

    Minah thrived. During her first few weeks on earth she had almost forgotten the joys of chemistry.
    30574632174_bb6f8322cd_b.jpg

    She decided to create a powerful potion that would turn humans into frogs.
    31359738806_3bb8eaaa5f_b.jpg

    And who better to try it out on that Zuha, the eternal embarrassment to the lab?
    30588646853_c8c271637e_b.jpg

    "Um, ok", Zuha said. "So it will make me grow a beard, nothing else?"
    "Yes", Minah replied.
    31359738526_4f723b26d6_b.jpg

    "Of course I'll try it! I always wanted a beard!"
    30588646683_655c4ecc84_b.jpg

    It's almost too easy, Minah thought.
    31359738366_a59acf882c_b.jpg

    "Huh?"
    There was a strange gurgling sound.
    31252009512_2f901ce4e3_b.jpg

    "I feel a little...dizzy", Zuha said, but he did not turn into a frog.
    I must have missed something when I mixed it, Minah thought to herself in disappointment.
    31359738146_c1f0203ec9_b.jpg

    A little later, she found him at the computer researching something.
    "So, how are you feeling now? Any beard yet?"
    "No, nothing", Zuha muttered. "Such sad."
    30588644433_545df64781_b.jpg

    "Well, there's still time for you to grow a fancy moustache by the weekend."
    But Zuha didn't reply this time. He was busy doing "research".

    During his lunch break Zuha took a trip to the bathroom, where his colleague Barry also happened to be.
    "I say!" Barry exclaimed. "That was some exquisite fake sausage potion you made back there!"
    30588645773_3d1d240fbd_b.jpg

    "Yes, it was", mused Zuha. "I was quite pleased with it myself too."
    31359737166_bbed2cf664_b.jpg

    "But now, if you'll excuse me, I need to erase your memory."
    30588645643_c45f026eec_b.jpg

    Ah, sweet innocent old Barry, eating his lunch in the bathroom.
    31359736996_38d9daff53_b.jpg

    Zuha sat down for a while.
    Life here on Earth is strange, he thought. It would be so much more fun to have a companion.
    30574629674_c49e240c75_b.jpg

    And there's that annoying Ms Know-It-All again! I should probably erase her memory too at some point.
    30588644543_797e1ca819_b.jpg

    Later in the afternoon, his colleague J ("J, just J and no it does not stand for Jeronimo!") approached him.
    "Hey Zu!"
    Call me Zu one more time and I will fry what little brain cells you have underneath that toupee.
    31450592016_cf4b91e387_b.jpg

    "So, Zu, I was thinking we could all go out for drinks on Friday. We always do that with newcomers at The Lab."
    "Yeah, ok", Zuha replied with disinterest.
    31488024595_3414197f4b_b.jpg

    "I'm a mean Don't Wake The Llama player. We should play a game!"
    "Yes, I won the National Championships on my...I mean, in my hometown", Zuha replied without missing a beat.
    30646970894_c8cd841e8e_b.jpg

    "Oh, er..." J stammered. "Well, then maybe you can teach me some tricks!"
    31450592446_b2e52fe2b6_b.jpg

    "I might", Zuha replied. "But then again, I might not."
    31450592596_f44172c492_b.jpg

    "Right", J said in a much less jovial tone. "I'll see you on Friday, then."
    "Yes, probably."

    Friday came around and the work colleagues gathered at The Shrieking Llama.
    "Did J invite you on a date too?" Minah asked incredulously.
    "A date?" Zuha looked at her perplexed. "No, I think he mentioned Wake The Llama..."
    30588644313_9f7d6145d6_b.jpg

    "Oh, never mind then", Minah continued. "I brought some more of that...special potion I prepared earlier."
    "Wonderful! It was really quite delicious", Zuha said.
    30574629404_4302b72069_b.jpg

    It has to work this time, she thought to herself. I changed the formula. It has to work!
    31252007602_6aebd59d73_b.jpg

    Nope. Nothing. Zilch.
    This is so strange. He must be a very resilient human.
    30588644063_dbabd9172e_b.jpg

    Moods of the evening:
    Zuha: "I am so going to kill at Llama tonight."
    Minah: "He's quite handsome. For a human."
    J: "Who needs underpants anyway."
    31252007492_9a837fb1ec_b.jpg

    The game began, with a local bar regular joining them for the first round.
    "...so, this one time I was playing with the late Geoffrey Landgraab..."
    30574643334_94edf44d23_b.jpg

    It looked like J was trying to hypnotise the game in his favour.
    31026983530_0c13825e58_b.jpg

    "Aha!" Zuha said triumphantly, as he pulled out one of the wooden sticks. "Top that if you can."
    31359754446_523ff2cd04_b.jpg

    "Loseeeeeer!" Zuha shouted as the game toppled over.
    31026981150_553353e65e_b.jpg

    "This was a lot of fun", Minah exclaimed. "We should do this again soon."
    J appeared to be studying the unusual green glow that surrounded her.
    Zuha, however, was too caught up in the glory of his win to notice.
    31026980020_45e858da5e_b.jpg

    "You can't beat the three times National Chamption at Llama! It cannot be done."
    "Yeah, well...you could have warned me", J sighed.
