The Sluff's

Marie was a very curious person. She always wanted to know about everything that she came across. when Marie was ten she was facinated with with space. One day /marie began to wonder where the mooon came from. Marie asked everyone she knew if they knew where the moon came from. Finnally her neghbor Beth said she knew the answer.

Beth began to tell Marie of an old fable that had been passed dow to her by her grandmother. " It all begins with the Sluff's" began Beth. "The Sluff's are an alein type race that populated Earth before the Humans came along. They were very cute with big eyes, chuby cheeks and a plump blue body. There was just one problem, they were so small we could barley see them. This microscopic bunch came in billions. They were very technologicly advanced and were able to fly about space with ease in there tiny space ships. Soon though the Sluff's had overpopulated Earth. There smartest group of thinkers came up with the idea to build a suitable planet to live on that would orbit earth. They got to work emediatly and sent there best engeneers and builders to go construct the Moon. It took the most suitable workers the Sluff's had to offer five years to build the moon but fiinally the last crater was compleeted. The Sluff's still populate the Moon today thriving under its surface. But what might happen if the Sluff's overpopulate again, they jist might hop in there tiny space ships and pay us a visit." finished Beth. After the story Marie heard she would loo out her window every night hoping to seee the Sluff's in there tiny space ships coming to Earth.
