On the world of Erth, there are humans and plants and animals, but the most important species of all: erth.
Introducing Ertth-lin. A small sedimentary rock, prized for his composition, he wants nothing more than to become apart of the skysitters – the humans’ prized invention. Tall metal buildings that sit on the sky, it amazes him that they don’t sway like the plants or trees. Seeming more stable than erth, more beautiful than him, he wants to be a part of it. Nothing would please him more.
Except when it comes to humans, nothing is as simple as you thought.
