Gaia allowed her lovely creatures to have one last spring frolicking before it was time to go. The space ship was waiting, hovering just above the turf in the U of MI stadium for now. After each area was emptied and loaded the ship would move to the next stadium.
Gaia called her creatures to her with her flute. The sound made them curious.
After a month of gathering, all were loaded. The ship lifted silently and headed for their temporary home, which was a galaxy one over from the Milky Way.
Then the rains started. Humans reached for their rain gear.
