“Mutantism on the March” Chapter 111 Is a Zorollian-Zortixian Friendship Possible?

A Zortixian spacecraft landed on Mount Royal that evening to take passengers back to Zortixia. Switchboards lit up at police stations throughout the island of Montreal reporting sightings of a UFO over the city! Squid had asked 10 earthling mutants to join him as a guest on the voyage but only two accepted. The first earthlings to visit another planet where there was a civilization opposed to rocks and an uninhabitable atmosphere. Montenez was staying behind for this trip and he gave Squid a warm embrace and suggested they make the next visit back to Zortixia together. Bertie Foonbean was there as well to say good-bye. Foonbean had just been released from jail after having embarked on a Canada wide tour advocating for the abolishment of psychiatric institutions except those for the most dangerous offenders. He had been picked up in Wa Wa, Ontario by the RCMP on a trumped-up charge of jay walking.

The Zortixian captain was anxious to get going as sensors had detected a large crowd of humans running up towards the mountain and the last thing the city wanted after the attack of the mutant killer ants was a confirmed UFO sighting!

The voyage from Earth to Zortixia took some twenty Earth hours and the two mutant earth observers aboard were given mild sedatives to calm them down for what they were about to see. One of them moaned “Shit….I’ve never even been in a plane before!”

Thousands of Zortixians were cheering as the craft docked in a landing station. A feverish excitement swept the crowd waiting to see the mutant Earthlings. When Squid emerged from the spacecraft the silence of the crowd was deafening. He waved and shouted, “Ami Tsech Curvi” the standard Zortixian greeting sending the crowd into orgasmic delight. A more restrained applause greeted the Earthlings. Garth Reseudo and Ergot stayed onboard the ship as they were travelling incognito lest they arouse suspicion of Zorollian spies who were no doubt on Zortixia.

The visitors were whisked to a State Hostel for a good sleep after their voyage and the next day there was a massive banquet in their honour. Eno had blown his cover after too many drinks of rum and marijuana after discovering them in his pirate and smuggling days on Earth. The Zortixians loved the rum and the weed and several prominent businessmen were already thinking about building a rum distillery and planting cannabis plantations.

Rumours began swirling about that Eno Ergot was on Zortixia to launch a mission to topple his despot uncle Redbeard. Zortixians has suffered under Oppositism for many years and they sympathized with Zorollians currently suffering under its oppressive yoke. The Zortixians had already executed one Jiber and they hoped Eno would do the same to Redbeard.

Eno was persuaded to take to the podium and say a few words, “There have been too many victims of Oppositism on both Zorollia and Zortixia. Zorollia must be liberated from the yoke of Oppositism eternally. The Zorollian status quo must be toppled by the Zorollian people and there is nothing that the tyrant Redbeard can do to stop it. Let Zorollians implement a government based on justice truth and equality.” After a round of hearty applause Eno lit up a cigarette (a bad habit he had developed on Earth) and continued, “I am positive there are Zorollian intelligence officers in our midst working for my evil uncle Redbeard and urge them to warn Redbeard that his time has come. Look to my left and you will see Garth Reseudo, an early protestor of the Redbeard regime, who was exiled to Earth for his beliefs. He will join me in my fight in a non-violent capacity. Both Squid and Reseudo have tirelessly carried on a struggle on Earth for dignity and civility. When we vanquish Redbeard I would be pleased to welcome Squid as an ambassador to Zorollia. We must thank Squid for the wonderful corruption smelling and battles against despotic rulers on Earth. My friends a toast to Zorollian-Zortixian friendship.
