FFfAW – Strange Bugs

The spaceship came to a jerking halt. Three aliens cautiously stepped from the ship. Carefully checking their surroundings, they made sure they were safe to descend.

The captain croaked in an unknown language and in a strange twitching,

“Because our control panel malfunctioned, I cannot tell which planet we landed on.”

Before moving any further, the leader stopped abruptly and held out his twitching arms to stop the others from proceeding,

“Shhh… Quiet. Inhabitants are coming.”

Rounding the corner, Daniel, a little boy and his dog, noticed three strange looking “bugs” sitting on the sunflower plant; on which his dog quickly hiked his leg and watered.
