#49 The Earthmen Charge


THE EARTHMEN CHARGE

The Earth soldiers stormed out of their space-ships, eager to repay the Martians for the damage done to their home planet. High in spirits, the men spoke hopefully of a swift victory over the enemy. Crossing a large sand dune, the troop of soldiers suddenly stopped and stared in wonder. Sprawled across the desert sands was a magnificent domed city. The sight was breath-taking. It was evident that the Martian builders were years ahead of Earth’s architects. The earthmen paused briefly, inspecting the spectacular city from the distance. The leader of the troop gave his orders and the soldiers continued toward the dome, with revenge in their hearts.
