Planetary Waters, by Joy Essien

Hundreds of small, furry creatures, known as Twekas, milled around, wondering why they had been summoned from their important jobs at zone 7.

The Supreme leader arrived. “The humans have found ‘water’ on our planet,” he told the astounded gathering. They plan to move to the red planet, shortly,” he announced.

The square vibrated with the excited Twekas’ humming sounds. They felt it would be fun to watch the great humans drink purified effluent.

You see, Zone 7 was a huge purification plant. It processed the creatures’ waste into clear liquid, that was used to cool the planet’s surface.
