The Beginning :)

From above the unknown planet looked rather homely and friendly. The first scanning of the atmosphere made with an on-board computer showed that it was breathable.

The shuttle landed on the coast of a sea, or maybe a large lake, or maybe even an ocean; a sandy beach was stretching to the right and to the left of the shuttle. Running upwards and away from the water, it changed into green hills and forests fenced by distant mountains. It was a cloudy day, and it was probably rather warm up there, in the hills, but here on the coast a chilly wind was constantly blowing from the sea, bringing in a mixture of smells, mostly pleasant ones. Large birds - probably some sort of local gulls - were flying low over the water, crying shrilly. All in all, it looked not too unlike Earth.

The sun broke through the clouds, and in its rays several other shuttles could be seen landing on the beach or going through the atmosphere to the surface of the planet.

When the fair-haired young man came leisurely closer, he found out that only one person of the group had left, but a new one was approaching. He smiled to the woman with cans a bit shyly and said:
- Hello. I'm Julian Mint. You seem busy. Can I help you somehow?

- Hi! Call me Bel. You may look after this, if you want, - she pointed to a box on the ground, - there is my hamster, I'm afraid it wants to run away, poor creature.
Bel took a pot out of her bag, opened a can with self-heating soup and poured it to the pot.
- Do you have a spoon? If not, take mine.

- Thank you, Bel. - Julian smiled again. - I think I have it... Yes.
After a bit of rummaging in his backback, he took out a case with flatware, found his spoon there and started eating, looking at the hamster box now and then.

- I hope, others will come soon. They are very nice people, those British. And I saw somebody coming from the beach. Where are you from?
She opened the box and took the hamster. The animal seemed to be nervous, but agreed to eat a cracker.

- That's funny, I'm British, too. From Cornwall. And you?
Julian put his hands in his pockets and seemed to be listening to everything around him, not too intently though.

- I am from France. - she smiled. - Look, they are coming!
