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.

- Oh-la-la, your English is even more funny than mine, - she affirmed respectfully, - I am Isabelle Épine.
She turned to Stella, smiled and added:
- But you may call me just Bel.

- Nice to meet you, Bel, - Stella said. - And you're from France, aren't you?

- Yes, I am from France. And you both are Britains, I suppose? I know a girl just like you, her family lived for centuries in a Whatever-shire. She was a stewardess, lucky sweetie. Evacuated the next day after the catastrophe.

- Yes, I'm from London, and Allan's from Scotland, - Stella replied. Looking around, she saw one more shuttle not far away and a man coming out of it.

- Our community seems to be growing quite rapidly, - she observed.

- Great, - Bel nodded, - I think, he'll see us from there. You know what, I don't think I'm ready to eat local plants without an examination, but I am rather hungry. What if I bring quickly some tins from my shuttle? So that the others can find us following the smell of the food, - she smiled, - we'll make a picknick here, sort of celebrating that we could survive.
She waved hoping that the newcomer can see them.

- Good idea, - Stella said. - We could also make a small campfire. It's probably early evening now, and the temperature may drop as the night is approaching.

She pointed to a small grove to the right of Bel's shuttle.

- I'm going to collect some brushwood. Allan, would you care to join me while Bel is taking her tins out?
