“The white stuff is called ‘snow’ its just water that’s frozen but don’t eat it.”

“Yes, Eslise.”

“Don’t look at me like that. Earth is a dangerous place. You can’t just put things in your mouth like at home.”

“Yes, Eslise.”

“Now, remember your manners. We are here as guests of the Lordship.”

“Prime Minister, Eslise.”

“What?”

“That’s what they call the Lordship here, Prime Minister I think.”

“Yes, well. Heed my words. Best behaviour.”

“No eating snow.”

“Exactly.”

“What about those?”

“The flora? Uh, I’m not sure. Perhaps ask first.”

“Looks tasty. Though so do the people.”

“No people!”

This is a Friday Fictioneers Prompt
