4. Chapter 4 *Silcresh*

I was strolling along the wooded trail when I looked up and saw something large falling from the sky. The object was slowing down; landing silently in a nearby clearing. I pushed the button on my watch repeatedly. Then, out of curiosity, I walked closer to the strange thing. An opening appeared and a single creature emerged.

I quickly stumbled back, it was a creature thought extinct, a human. Its skin was a dull color, definitely male from the smell I was getting. I inhaled deeper, there were more, many more. I was seated among the long weeds and dirt, waiting for this odd creature to make a move.

"Well I guess that's a no go, but thank you for trying."

<"It was fun in an odd way you could say."> I said while chuckling.

"So you can laugh but you cannot speak aloud, how very odd." He said thinking deeply.

Lights on my watch began to flash and he looked at my questioningly, I just shrugged, if he didn't know what a beacon was then his species was dumber than bricks. But then again they had just landed on our planet with no alert to the Elders...
