When they landed on the planet, Nesbulia, they noticed that green cocoon looking things hung everywhere they could see.
“Look man, this is really creeping me out. There are all these green cocoon things.” Martin pinched his face as he said it.
Luther stopped suddenly and answered Martin, “Maybe these green cocoon things are their homes.”
Both men proceeded cautiously toward the green cocoons.
Suddenly, a deafening noise sounded and they both stopped in their tracks.
“Who's there?” Demanded a voice from the loud speaker.
“We are friendly people here to meet our planet's neighbors.”
“Stop where you are and go no further!”
Two small men stepped out of the cocoons and walked over to the men.
“We don't have any neighbors.”
The green men reached out their hands in what seemed to be a gesture to shake hands. The men reached out their hands to shake and suddenly they were transformed into inhabitants of green cocoons.
Luther and Martin looked at each other noting that the other had become a beautiful shade of green.”
