“Mummy, what are they doing?”
“It’s harvest time, Hazel. They’re harvesting. This happens at the same time every year. We’ll have plenty to see us through the hardest of winters. None of us will go hungry. There’ll be plenty for all of us.”
“What are they harvesting, Mummy? They look strange. What are they used for? Will I like them?”
“They are strange looking, aren’t they, Linden? They came here and murdered some of our species. Now, we harvest them and use them as fertiliser to feed us. They’re called humans. You’ll soon find out how delicious they taste.”
