Gift Of Seeds

Rayven had spent the next twenty four studying the different seeds that she’d found and grown. After careful study and countless tests deemed them safe for the settlers to grow and eat. Gathering up the containers, Mist headed for the settlement and in a few minutes found the head settler. Handing him the jars “I found these in a cave over there,” Rayven said pointing “These jars contain seeds, it seems as if someone else was here nearly a century ago and left these jars behind. I’ve spent hours studying them and have planted some and all have grown and after countless tests they’re safe to plant and eat.”
Taking the jars from her he handed them off to another settler “Please put these with the rest of the seeds for later planting.”
Taking the jars the other settler headed for the barn
“I don’t know how to thank you and your ship for all you’ve done for us and to help us,” the head settler said
“No thanks are needed, I’m glad to help,” Rayven said as she looked around the city that they’d help build and then back to the head settler, “You’ve got a good location here, not too far from the water, good grass for grazing your animals when they get here. I’m needed back on the ship.”
“Our animals will be arriving in the next couple of weeks, we have everything ready for them too,” the head settler replied shaking Rayven’s hand as he turned and headed toward the meeting hall.
Tapping her com-badge “Independence one to beam up,” Rayven said and in seconds she was back on the ship. A report for the captain and first officer would need to wait, right now all she wanted was a hot shower, change of clothes, a bite to eat and then some rest. Then she’d have her report done and turned in.
