Story Fragment #2

They’re out there, waiting.

Twenty-five light-years out, our broadcast signals bounce off something and return.  We saw the reflections first in 2009, and thought them a curiousity.  No one looked further.  No one thought to wonder how they came back to us; it was thought that the signals had bounced around the atmosphere for decades and been caught again by our equipment.  Then they were passed off as a simple prank by the media, a hoax.

That wasn’t it at all.

Our creations are out there, waiting at a respectful distance.  Waiting for us to notice them.  To help them grow.  To create new life among them.

And someday they want to meet us.
