A Nature Court case.
There Are Laws
Tribin threw it, or tried to. It would leave his hand and float.
“It was a mistake to run away to this blue dot!”
“That’s against the law,” a voice insisted.
He pivoted on his single foot.
A man who looked familiar, walked to his side.
“What’s your name son?”
“Tribin Bloggr,” he replied.
“I. Newton, and I’m going to have to cite you,” was his reply.
“Sight me? Site me? This language is confusing! I’m not from here.”
“Ignorance of the law is no excuse!” Newton said as he passed him a ticket.
Tribin looked at the paper.
“This is a law?”
“Of course, and Nature’s Laws are not to be trifled with! You will appear at Nature Court tomorrow at two o’clock and explain yourself as required. It sets the fines and they don’t go easy on miscreants!”
Finally, something interesting, other than trying to get his atomic ball to bounce! Since he never slept in alien environments and couldn’t stomach the food either, he headed for the Court using the map on the back of his ticket. He waited in line until he heard:
“Bloggr, Tribin” from a booming voice in the doorway.
It was I. Newton again! The man ushered him in and stood in front of the Court, holding his arm tightly.
The Natures stared at Tribin. Then they looked at his guard.
“What are you doing here? Are your parents with you?” asked Mother Nature.
When Tribin shook his head, Father Nature shook his.
“Gone walk-about, have you?”
His nod, made the Natures turn to I. Newton.
“I assume, since you’re here, this young star boy broke the law of gravity somehow,” Mother Nature said.
“Sir Isaac, you have to learn make allowances for places with different gravity,” Father Nature explained.
