Bizzelbi had been traveling for over a trillion light years (1,001,842,753,291 to be exact). True, she had slept through most of it, and the Ventilly-XTR1 wormhole had been a pleasant shortcut, but still, she had been looking forward to stretching her three spikes and nine tentacles. However, now that she saw it up close, Earth seemed rather dirty. Where were the brilliant blues and greens she remembered from the Zarskizzi Space Adventures brochure? Damn photoshop. What’s real anymore? No matter. She still had plenty of fuel and endless universes in front of her. Accelerating, Earth vanished out the back window.
