They tried to communicate with her, but nothing happened. She could not understand them, they could not understand her either.
After they were tired of trying to communicate with her without results, they grabbed her again and took her to another part of the building. Then threw her into a cell and left a few guards outside the cell to watch her.
The hours went by really slowly. The sunrise came upon the building, there was a change of guards, and no signs of them letting her go anywhere.
Around noon she heard a loud commotion. Something was happening outside, she thought to herself. Then the doors of the room opened and, finally, a familiar face from the other side of town. It was the mayor and one of the elders. She recognized him because he had been mayor for a long time because he kept getting re-elected.
He rushed closer to the cell where she was being held and said to her, “Do not say a word. I will try to get you out of here.” with worried look in his face.
“But, what did I do wrong?” she asked, with tears in her eyes.
“Well, you broke the rules. Ours and theirs and that is severely punishable” he said, almost whispering .
He then turned around and left the room.
Two days passed and not a word from anyone, her parents, the mayor, or even the authority of the town she was being held in.
Then suddenly, on the third day, her mayor and some weird looking gentleman came into the room and ordered the guards to open the cell and they grabbed her. Two of them approached her cautiously and four others were pointing some metallic objects to her face.
They pushed her out of the holding cell while she looked at the mayor in disbelief. He only said “Do not worry, child. Everything will be alright. Just keep walking.”
Once outside the building, they put her and the mayor in a carriage pulled by four big animals, and one of the people was directing the animals. There was another carriage with guards behind them. There was a multitude of people everywhere, witnessing what was happening to her.
When the carriage began to roll down the road, the town people began screaming and throwing trash at the carriage she was in.
Once they finally got to the “Z” sign, the carriage stopped. The guards jumped out of their carriage and positioned themselves at different points, still aiming their metallic objects towards her and the mayor. The mayor stepped out of the carriage first, with his hands up. It didn’t make any sense to her, and he told her to do the same thing.
They both walked away cautiously with their hands up in the air. When they were far enough from the sign, she could not help but to ask him what had happened on the other side and why was she treated as a criminal.
He rubbed his forehead and answered, “My dear child, you’ve just met the human race.”
