After what feels like an hour later George appears from the hole. Excited, I sit up and edge towards him.
“What did you find?” I ask him.
“We found something in the dirt... it was crystal. My men are currently digging it out, it may take a while. But we have found it” George says, I hear hope in his voice. That is good. That is very good.
“It is the crystal... something isn’t it?” I ask, just to make sure.
“Yes, I am assuming, just hold tight. Do not worry, we will bring it up from the earth”
“It is my pleasure. You have finally come to earth and we are going to find out what for. I apologise for the lack of detail, but this crystal may help us”
“Yes may help us... may. I just hope that it does.
