The Galactic Adventures of Noob the Martian. -Part 4

“Your Mighty please have Mercy, I’m only here but to make amends for the past.”
Noob humbly said as he knelt in front of the great King Shona.
“I was also sent to build a working relationship with your planet, mighty king”.
The king stepped down towards where Noob was kneeling.
“Arise young Prince, I welcome you as an advisor to a once hard headed king, but I see he’s smarter now to employ he’s own son to do the work of an advisor, and one that’s as good at conveying speech as you are.”
A door opened and out stepped a beautiful Queen adorned with the royal flowers around her neck.

Noob looked around at the party that followed the Queen, they were headed for the beautiful Galicia that he had met earlier.
“Now young man, don’t send your eyes on missions you weren’t sent to complete.”
ordered the king as he noticed the odd way that Noob was looking in the queens direction.
“That is my very talented queen”. “Oh darling I doubt he’s was looking at me, he probably thought there was a young princess to be seen”.

The Princess

Noob stood there oblivious to the conversation going on, he’s mind was still on someone he knew he wanted to tell stories of he’s travels to. Just as the Prince was walking towards the queen who was standing in the light, Galicia, as if the daughter of a star, came behind the queen, and Noob once again, saw the heavens in life form.

“Hello mother, I see you all ready for the feast after the festivities.”
Prince Zion said, as he stretched out to hug the queen.
“Oh and this dazed out Prince is a friend of mine from the royal school.”
Slowly, Noob began to come back to reality.
“Sorry royal queen, I’m Noob Prince of Mars, and advisor to the king, I am pleased to be welcomed by your courts on such a day as this.”

“Greetings dear Prince, I hope all that you came here for will stay on the diplomatic side if things.
I shall join you all at the feast, I now have to rush off to be with my subjects.”

With that, they all went their separate ways. As they walked off, Hercules was instructed to take the equipment from the ship to Noob’s room. “And please don’t break things there Hercules.” Noob shouted sarcastically in Hercules’ direction.

As the second moon went up in the distance they made their way to the banquet room.

All the royal family sat at one table.
“Oh Hercules, please can you let Prince Noob sit here in your place for tonight’s feast?” asked Galicia, with a pretty smile gracefully seated on her face.

Noob looked up to see a familiar face, a face he had not seen in what seemed like forever. “Oh if it isn’t Prince Zion the defender of the people, what are the chances I run into you?” Noob says as he walks past Hercules nervously.
“My old friend, Noob of Mars, the Prince who was dead set on having a job in he’s fathers council, what brings you to our world during such a time as this?”
The Saturnite Prince swiftly got off the back of a mighty animal.

Hercules’s mighty stallion.

“I’ve come for good relations my dear friend, but let me not intrude on today’s events, show me to the Kings palace and we’ll talk later.”
“Noob my friend you are not an intrusion at all, in fact I’ll escort you myself.”
Just then Hercules let out a heavy grunt, “Oh! With the help of Hercules, of course!”

The Saturnic alien city.

They make their way through the many alleyways through the city, all the while catching up on the good old days they spent at the Royal school of leadership on Pluto.
“So tell me my friend, did you eventually convince your father to let you be he’s advisor?” The Prince asked gracefully. “Oh yes, as I told you I would! As we speak, I’m here on official advisory work.” As they were talking, Noob remembered he’s spaceship.
“Oh nooooo!! I forgot to change the conflagrations on the spaceship, I left it on temporary landing, it will take off as soon as the first moon on this planet is visible.”
“Don’t worry, Galicia has probably already sorted that out.” says Hercules
“Little Martian technologies wouldn’t be too hard for her to grasp”.
In that moment Noob remembers that beautiful face that he saw, ” so Galicia is good with technology too?”

Galicia, leader of the Queens council.

“She’s good at a lot of things! That’s my sister, she’s really smart.”
“Don’t get too excited there Noob, Hercules will kill for he’s precious sister.”

As they were talking they finally made it to the palace, as they entered the courtyard, Noob looked around at all the beautiful statues and asked, “Are these the great Kings you always talked about?” The Prince answered, “Yes, and when a King dies, he is remembered in statue, I’ll be here one day.”
“Haha very funny” Noob said sarcastically.

Saturnian King of the past

Just as they were walking up towards the great palace the Kings advisor, who was a wise old man, came out towards them. “Prince Zion, you know all royalty should be at the parades today, what kind of disobedience is this that you are in your fathers courts at this hour?”
“Oh dear Mutwa, rest your heart, I’m here with a visitor, and he is a royal, so do show him respect. Is my father in he’s room?”
“Oh yes he is, welcome honorable Sir”.
The Prince walked inside the palace and he went straight to he’s fathers room, Noob on the other hand was amazed and in awe of all the beauty that the palace boasted.
The walls were high and had hints of gold, the floors were made from a rock substance that was so beautiful to look at and walk on, Noob got lost in all of it for a moment.
“Don’t get left behind, oh dear Prince.” Hercules said, in a very sarcastic tone.

The majestic palace

“Father sorry to disturb you on a day like this, but I have a visitor from Mars here to see you.”
“A visitor from Mars?”
“Yes, he’s the Prince father.”
“Tell him I don’t want to see no son of that stubborn King Khoi…”


The Galactic Adventures of Noob the Martian. – Part 2

As the ship settled after a big thump after the hard landing, Noob checks all his instruments to make sure nothing has been badly damaged.
“I wonder what planet this is, sigh! Dad always makes me go off to these deserted planets all by myself”.

Noob lands on a deserted planet

This was another expedition that Noob had to do for the government back on his mother planet, Mars. After a long check he then started laying out the landing gear, “Ok, all systems are a go, now to engage the landing gear and have a small nap”.
Outside the ship there was a lot of commotion, the ship had landed in a planet very far from Noob’s home planet.
This planet was called Saturn, Noob had landed at the wrong time, the Saturners were gathering for the annual (not our annual) week of the Kings, on this day they were celebrating the first King of Saturn, King Galileo.

“Be still let me inspect this object that dares to interrupt our festivities…” said a loud voice coming from the back of the huge crowd.
The voice belonged to the commander of the Kings army, they were of a higher rank than the other soldiers of the planet.

Commander of the Kings army

As Noob’s landing gear was done assembling he was woken up by a sight he had never seen before, he saw in the distance what to him looked like metal rings around the city.
He got up and got all he’s research equipment and protection gear, after that incident on Mercury he knew to always take he’s protective gear.
“What planet is this…” he wondered after realizing that there were creatures around the ship. The door opened and as he was about to walk out, he was confronted by Galicia, the beautiful leader of the Queens council.

Galicia, leader of the Queens council

“This is the most beautiful creature in all the galaxies.”
“Do you know who you’re referring to commoner…” responded Galicia in the sweetest most beautiful sounding voice.
“Did I not just think that in my head, you actually heard me?” asks a very nervous Noob.


Hercules pushes through the crowd and charges towards the ship.
“Who dares to speak with the gracious Galicia with such little respect?”
Noob realizes he might have been caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, again!
“I plead with you good sir, I only come to build relations with your people…”
Before Noob could continue, he noticed everyone around him moving about and creating a pathway. As he looked up he saw a great figure surrounded by a large number of soldiers. “Leave him Hercules, today is not a day for battle, and I do think I know this young Prince…”

Part 1:
When we met humans.

Well I’ll tell you a little story,
I’m Noob from a planet called Mars, by the way.
Let’s start this story at the beginning, I’m sure you will like it a lot.
Well, I landed on this planet called Earth many moons ago.
I was sent here to establish some type of relationship between our two planets.
I was supposed to be sent with a large group of my people to help share information with humans. I chose to go by myself first though. I was the adviser to the leader of our planet and so I had a big responsibility to make sure I learned as much as I could about a planet I’m sent to. Well now that you know a little about me let’s get into the story and I will tell
you what I have learned about humanity.

When I first got to this planet I was not visible to humans, I did this to learn their actions and to find the easiest way to connect with them. I did not want to scare them, you know, space travel is new for the humans.
After a few days of observing them I noticed that they are all different. I noticed how the old looking ones were always moving and they are all busy. I noticed some that didn’t look so old but at the same time not too
young but were very active and always laughing. The most beautiful ones where held all the time and they were always being kissed. I also noticed how each of these groups would act with each other. I then got close to this nice group of humans. There were two old humans, three middle aged humans and there was one who had two eyes that looked like a brown milky way.

As I got to know this group of humans I noticed how beautiful it is to be human. I saw how the old human who had really short hair would leave before the sun came, that human would be gone for a while before the other humans would leave. I would then see how the other old human would make the other humans food so they can have a feast. I looked at the way the other small humans would run outside and make each other laugh and be happy. The short haired human would come back and then the other humans would go up to him and they would have the biggest smiles on their faces.

After a few days I found a way to follow the short haired human. He would go to a place that had many other humans that were all different but very interesting to me. They would be doing different things but it all would happen in a way that made it look fun. The way they would interact with each other showed that they care for each other. The small group of humans that I was observing had a small animal.

They would treat the animal just as they treated each other. There was also something that was the most beautiful thing about the humans.
When they would hold each other they would have the most beautiful eyes ever, I’ll miss that the most.
So I guess to answer your question, what does it mean to be human?
To be human is to love others and take care of everyone around you so as to bring and spread joy around.
I sign this,
Noob, the King’s adviser.
