The Library

Anno sat in the library, a book open on the desk in front of him. He scanned the page, looking at the illustrations and text. It was all about a little known world on the edge of the galaxy. He turned to the next section.

Urf. That is what it was called. A place from before the beginning of time. Little was known about it and nothing was left. The beings who inhabited it had fought amongst themselves and destroyed each other and the planet.

Anno sighed. He couldn’t turn in a report to his history teacher with so little information.
He dug deeper into the book, clicking link after link. The history bot must have a glitch.

Finally he found an obscure reference that looked interesting. He clicked on it and let out a strangled gasp. What kind of creatures were these? Tiny orbs that passed for eyes on what must be the top of their heads. And they only had two of them! They were hideous.

Anno turned off the book and left the library, gliding on a slime trail. His friends would never believe this!
