I was more worried about my dad and brother’s grave than the food. “I’ll run there now and check,” I said.
Arriving at the crash site, I gawked at the empty beach, stunned. The remnants of the crashed spaceship and the dead people were gone! I ran to the boulder where I had buried my dad and brother, and started digging. They were gone too! “What the hell…freaking thing happened?”I peeled my eyes to look for anything that had once belonged to the spaceship but could not find any. There was no evidence of the crash as if the accident never happened. Even the reek from the condemned ship was gone, and the air was ocean-smell-fresh. The animals couldn’t have done it. Excellent cleaning!
