500 GPs were sent to Colin Back on the Ghost Roads with this post.
"You aren't allowed in here," the boy said and slammed the door in Azarra's face. Laughter rang out inside the boy's clubhouse as Azarra sighed and walked away. Earthlings were more difficult to communicate with than she thought. She sat down on a fallen log and wept. There had been a glitch on entry into Earth's atmosphere leaving her the only survivor. Before she could decide what to do next, someone tapped her on the shoulder, "Hey,I'm sorry about slamming the door on you like that but the guys don't want any females around,".
It was the clubhouse guard ,"My name is Jimmy," he told her .
"I'm Azarra Boco Naj," she replied ," Are you the leader here?"
"Yes,I am the President ," Jimmy said," What are you doing way out here in the woods alone?"
"Exploring new lands and interacting with new species," she explained.
"Cool!" the boy exclaimed," Is it a special project for extra credit?"
"Yes," she said," Can you help me?"
"Sure ,I told the guys I was going home anyway. What do we have to do?"
"Well do you know what this is?," she said as she took a small black box out of her pocket.
When he shook his head she said,"This is a homing device so that my friends can find me when my mission is completed,".
"Oh like a GPS," he said.
"If I bring the President home with me I will receive the highest honors ever given an explorer. Will you return with me?"
Jimmy laughed,"Sure,if it means that much to you. Will I make it home for dinner?"
"Oh you'll be around for dinner alright," she chuckled,exposing razor sharp canines.
Locking arms with him she pressed two buttons on the finder and took the short cut home.
