A flash story written for the prompt, Life on Mars.
50,000,000 years ago, Nala walked through the forest gathering fruit, and saw an object. Standing next to it was a man. He indicated drinking. Nala led him to a pool and he became overjoyed. Nala had never seen such enthusiasm for simple water.

The two embraced and perhaps more happened. . .

50,000,000 years later, Nora Valdez landed the first manned ship to Mars. Obviously an exciting moment. Everyone wondered if there had once been life on Mars, but Nora thought something else. Gazing at the red landscape, she somehow felt that she had finally come home.
