“Have we come to the right destination?  Things look strange!”  Explorer blurted out.

“No!  I’ve seen these things before, we should go.”  Wiseone answered.

“What is that odd thing ?”

“They call it a bridge.”

“What’s it for?”

“They can walk on it, but we would just hover over it.  I think those things with the four round objects can scoot across it.”

“What’s on the other side?”

“More of the same, but there is no fluid and there is something flat across the earth’s floor.”

“Oh!  So this is the earth I’ve heard about!”

“Yes, part of it, and we need to leave! “

“Can’t we just stick around for a while?  I want to see more of earth!”  Explorer pleaded.

“Absolutely not!  There is too much corruption here!”  Wiseone bellowed.

“What’s corruption?”

“Dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery.”

“That’s terrible!” Let’s go!”  Explorer remarked.
