When his stomach had returned to his body, Dan was able to sit inside the ship. An intense pain radiated from the nape of his neck to his forehead making him carry the hands to his temples, his eyes also bothered him and he couldn’t focus at all. It was dark outside but he could feel a slight rhythmic movement. Little by little the visibility was regained and then he realized that, what was around him were trees, shrubs, plants of all kinds and even clouds in the sky. For a moment he couldn't understand what he was looking at until his memory suddenly reminded him what he was doing there and how impossible it was to be seeing that.
Impressed he emerged as best he could from the capsule, still dizzy, holding himself strong from what he could, looked and watched every detail, the gigantic trees erected before him, the large leaves moving in the wind and dirt and stones under his boots. Then he realized that there was air around him and as fast as his muscles gave him, he threw the helmet on the floor. The wind hit him in the face, the cool of the air moved his hair from side to side, hundreds of new aromas flooded his nose, a huge world full of life showed for him.
Daniel had never seen such a thing, in his world few trees had existed, except in the parks, that were actually screens in the middle of the cities, of a few hundred square meters where some types of trees or shrubs were found, a little bit of grass and an artificial sky, in those places there weren't even animals because people bothered to be disturbed in their rests, which by themselves were few. As for air, away from home, where refrigeration systems were installed with clean air, it was impossible to breathe with ease, the pollution of the environment was such that no one could leave without oxygen, the wind didn’t blow more than a slight breeze and both the sun and the moon were barely visible, so that place captivated him. He took off the suit and sat there, listening to the melody of the night, breathing the fragrance of the environment, feeling the earth under his hands.
By the time Dan realized that he had fallen asleep once more, it was already dawn, the sun was seeping through the leaves and everything was appreciated bright green alive. His illnesses had almost completely disappeared, so he decided to report to the LIFE. The screen of the capsule took a while to start, but as soon as it was ready, the communication option appeared.
In the laboratory a special alert began to sound before the excitement of all present, finally the boss appeared and answered.
–Landon you did it, how are you? Did you arrive well?
–Yes, I just had some discomfort when I woke up.
–Don’t worry, it's completely normal. Now you must start the search.
–Yes, about it, I would like to report something unusual.
–What happened? Any damage to the capsule? Some mistake?
–No, everything is perfect, the only problem is that the planet isn’t as dead as we thought.
The chief's surprise was evident.
–Maybe they're just the first effects of light in the place.
–I'm not an expert on the subject, sir, but I don’t think in two lusters the light can do what is seen here.
Dan pulled back slightly from the screen and left everyone in the center watching. On his return he found a group of people completely disconcerted. It took him a time, but finally the boss managed to articulate the words in his mind.
–Well... well... we had this contemplated, so don’t worry, it's a very strange coincidence, but don’t worry.
Dan felt that they had lied to him, but he didn’t give it more importance, he listened to the boss's instructions and finished the communication.
The young man began to look in the capsule and found some clothes, all the same to which he already had, until a shirt appeared in the background along with a vest and trousers full of bags, a tool belt, a rigid backpack, boots, several water containers and a pair of guns. Dan left the protective suit on his body and put on his shirt, vest, trousers and boots, kept everything he needed in the backpack, loaded his belt, his guns, turned on his tracker and got ready to start his search.
