My mom woke me up, when we landed at Kadjar Central Space Port. Her strong hands shook my body like I was bag of milk. My eyes opened and saw around. I stood up from my bed, which quickly morphed back into a seat. I went into the aisle and summoned my bag. It detached from the ceiling and took position above my head. Mom woke Malik and Rosa up, they stood up, and beds turned into seats. I looked around, and I saw beds morphing into seats all across the floor.
The door opened and we went into the Space Port Terminal. The sun of the new world shone through the glass walls. Right in front of the gate stood a row of wrist scanners attached to glass doors. Behind them was my new life. I put my wrist into a scanner, and it glowed green. That meant I was allowed to enter. I heard a legend that scanners can glow red, and the people die on the spot. What a stupid fable, scanners always glow green. The door opened, and I stepped into the shopping district. My god, this place was a city. There were shops selling everything from communicators to pet unicorns. According to legends shops had people selling things in the olden days. What a waste of time, all you need a wrist scanner at the exit.
I took hands of Mom on the right and Rosa on the left. To the right of mom stood Malik. To the left of Rosa were dad and Leff. We were fresh from sleep and full of optimism. With this mood, we moved forward into Kadjar.
Spaceport was filled with people of all shapes and sizes. I saw humans of every possible shade, from pitch black to marble white. I saw grey skinned blue haired Ostartes, a species divided into two groups which have nothing in common. Alphers and Zahuris. “The Perfect Ones “and “The Instructors “, the words are more precise than that, but human speech can’t express highly complex meanings of Calpuri language. Alpher actually means, “The pinnacle of perfection, which cannot be exceeded or improved”, and Zahuri means “The one who teaches meaning of life “. One cannot study history without learning Calpuri.
I brought my mind back into the present. To my left I saw Orks in all shades of green, blue, red, and yellow. They wore clothing the color of their skin, and that looked confusing, they were so colorful my eyes hurt from looking at them. To the left of me were goblins, smaller and more agile versions of Orks, all of which had green skin, and gray business suits. The people in the crowd around us had hair colors ranging from red to green. Some had hair flowing down to their feet, others had no hair at all.
Announcements were made in all the languages of the empire, they first told them in Kadjari, and then in the language of the world where the space ship is going. For most destinations it was Common Tongue, though a bunch of other languages were used as well. For the announcers, every passenger was a Mr. They didn’t see any females in the crowd. There were thousands of females and no female toilets! When I asked a man where I could go, he said I could use any lavatory. This place is totally weird.
The space port had restaurants serving dragon meat and fried lizards. We walked around for an hour before we found anything edible. But, we did have our breakfast in a very nice Terran Restaurant. We ate omelets and drunk orange juice the way people do on Terra. For an Ork couple next to us that was exotic cuisine.
