Back to Brightness

 

    Having a cup of coffee in hand, I sat by the round window and gazed into the boundless darkness outside—the space. Planets gleamed like smooth and moisten pebbles lying in the silk of darkness, and even the huge ones seemed tiny.
     It was unbelievable that in space, I could walk as freely in spaceship as on earth with neither oxygen mask nor spacesuit. This was because of the gravity device and the thick insulation board. The gravity device could automatically adjust the gravitational force the floor had on other things in the ship in order to simulate an earth-like environment, while the thick insulation board wrapped the ship and provided oxygen, so that we can breathe freely in the ship.
     However, an ordinary high school student like me could not create any of these hi-tech devices above. They came out of my grandpa's hands. Grandpa was an environmentalist and astronomer. He devoted his whole life to environmental and astronomical research, which made people who could not understand his studies call him "madman".
     "Hey. What's in mind?" Qiao's voice pulled me back into reality. He was my best friend, and so was Bin.
     "Nothing."
     "I guess it's your grandpa again, right? Still can't get the meaning of his words?" I didn't reply. A piece of memory occupied my mind.

****************************

     Three months ago, there was a rare global plague on earth,and it was caused by variant mosquitoes. Because of people's needs of improving their life, all kinds of environment problems broke out. The environment became worse and worse, and causing the chemicals on the variant mosquitoes mixed and reacted and generated a strange material which was unknown to people, even doctors or scientists couldn't find the way to cure this until now.
     Grandpa passed away a month ago because of the plague. When collecting his remains, I found a thick notebook with words written on the last page, "always hidden behind the sunshine, the ranger slumbers towards the sunrise." Wondering what it means, I put the notebook aside and then some specimens of extinct insects drew my attention. One very special insect could radiate with blue lights. It had a weird name, "Alpha Worm", which grandpa marked in red. These strange insects reminded people to protect the earth all the time, but the reality was not good.
     The first time I truly got to know grandpa's research was the second week after his death. I was looking for something in the basement that day, when opening a door in the basement by mistake. This door belonged to grandpa's laboratory. Wondering what the inside was like, I went into the room and was shocked — I've never known that grandpa's laboratory was as vast as a playground.
     Grandpa's laboratory was extremely dark and cold. It suddenly reminded me of the strange words in grandpa's notebook. This laboratory in the basement was the one hiding behind the sunshine, wasn't it? Then who would be "the ranger"?
     I looked around, and saw a point marked in green on a map of the space. It was shining faintly in the darkness. I looked at it carefully and found out that it was a button, and next to it, was written "the ranger"! So explicit!
     I pressed the button with great excitement and then something amazing happened. The basement shaked and rifts appeared on the eastern wall of the basement. Not long later, a huge spaceship showed up. A small projector stretched out from the wall, and the image of grandpa appeared.
     He said to me," over these years, I have been studied hard on people and space, environment and nature. Two years ago, I finally found out the universe's secret: the antimatter. This antimatter could counteract with the huge gravitation in the wormhole. With this technology we could realize our dream of visiting other planets. In this way, we would probably be able to find another planet for human beings to live. Also, we can learn from aliens when we have problems that we can't solve. However, my research had to stop because a serious plague recently. In order to find the solution for the plague, I shelved the shuttle's research. I found that this treatment is very simple, but it lacks of a key material, that is..." the Image suddenly disappeared.
     After I got out of father's lab, I tried to persuade my father to come to see grandfather's study. But he refused immediately. I was really angry with him to be a despotism dictator. As a result, I called two of my best friends, An Qiao and Su Bin, to go to the space with me by the spaceship that my grandfather had prepared for me. We used the antimatter in the spaceship so that we were able to go through the wormhole. Then we left the earth and began to look for the way which my grandpa had said to cure the plague. Although I didn't know where to find the way clearly, I believed in my grandpa's words.

****************************

     "Di di" the sound interrupted my memory. Suddenly Bin shouted, "Look! What's wrong?" I rushed there, and saw that the screen was red, "The program is wrong!" I saw these words, "What's this?" I thought. We were only high school students. Although we had been trained, we had never started a spaceship before. The situation made us worried. When the spaceship stopped moving, I thought "we are over!" the last thing I knew was that the spaceship fell down.
     When I woke up, Qiao and Bin was awake. We put on the spacesuits and went outside.
     To our surprise, this place looked like earth. It had mountains, rivers ,and even animals. However, the sky was purple, as if pressing the mountains. in addition, there wasn't any people. "Look, there are so many bugs over there!" Qiao cried of surprise. "We'd better stay away from them." Bin said with a little terrify. "Oh, take it easy! They are just bugs, which are quite common." I looked at Bin with smile, and then I looked at the bugs carefully. I was surprised to find that there was a bright blue light inside them. "Well, I guess... Ha, we've found it!" I said with excitement. "What?" asked Qiao. "I found the α bug that my grandpa had mentioned!" "Will it cure the plague?" "I'm not sure, but I'll take it with us first." I kept the alpha worms in a transparent bottle. I just caught a few of them, but that's enough.
     We went back into the ship, trying to find solution. Unexpectedly, I found that the grandfather left another video, in which he described in detail how the ship may occurrence breakdown. Following his instruction, we fixed the shuttle. Thankfully, this star was not desolate. We could find many common resources, added good rocket fuel and water, bring alpha worm, we found the entrance to the wormhole.

Crossing over from the wormhole, we looked out from the window

     Crossing over from the wormhole, we looked out from the window. Surprisingly, we went in a space that we had never been to before. It was a beautiful view, but with a feeling of loneliness.
     "It seems that we are not far away from the Earth. Where are we exactly?"
"Let's try universe navigator. I hope that it has the map we need." Qiao said and opened the navigation device. After a while, the data appeared on the screen. "Great! We are not far away from the Earth, because there is a detailed data on this space." Just then, a sudden flash showed on the screen from the help icon, but disappeared only seconds later. Bin looked worried. "Look, there's someone putting flares! It's right on the nearest of the sinking in the golden planet!" Qiao exclaimed, "The data said that the star is called Sunset Glow." we landed our spaceship on the golden planet.
     When we landed on the land, we saw a spaceship in the shape of a part of a train. The damage was so severe that it was impossible to repair the ship. Down the ship, we saw a little girl. She looked no different with the human, but the neck has a pair of small silver transparent wings. "Hi, are you the only one here?" we asked. Holding a small square box, the girl spoke, and the sound came out from the box: "Nice to meet you, friends on Earth. I'm Viola. I'm ten years old, from Cleste Star. "We shook our hands warmly. "This little box is a translator. I have entered the language from the earth, so the translator can help us communicate."
     Viola took us to the "train" side, she said: "Last week I sneaked out, driving Dad's ship out to play. But I accidently pressed a wrong button. Then, my ship fell on the Dayspring. " "Maybe you should be careful next time." All of us laughed.
     "Viola, you've been waiting for a long time, haven't you?" Bin asked. "Yes. The Signal transmission equipment broke a little bit, so it can only send a very weak signal. I felt despair because the patrol cannot find here! I waited for someone to pass by, fortunately, I met you!" Viola took out a map of the universe and told us: "That green planet, over there, is the star I come from, named Celeste. There are endless forests and beautiful lakes. I live at a primitive mountain, with a variety of plants and animals living freely. The air is so clean all year round ..."
      "Ah, isn't that what we are pursuing for in the world?" I sighed. "Unfortunately, although many people have tried to change the global environment, highly skilled criminals are always greedy. In order to bring their own benefits, they destroyed our forests and fields so seriously that they would never change back "Bin dejected. Thinking of the yellow soil exposed our land, thinking our brethren are suffering from great pain of the strange illnesses, the three of us said in unison: "Viola, We are going to send you back to Celeste as soon as possible, and then we will quickly set off to look for a way to save our friends on the Earth. "Thank you very much." said Viola.
     Viola sat in our ship. Bin told she all about the strange illness. Girls listened surprisingly, finally she said: "Oh, I know about this disease. My parents work in the Institute of Medicine on our planet, they also got involved with the study of this kind of disease. However, we didn't find out the exact solution, either. "We speeded our flight.
     Suddenly, a spaceship appeared in the distance, and it flew towards us directly, it stopped in front of the Tramp and tried to block it. "What's up?" I muttered questioningly. At that time, a call request appeared on the screen. "Dad?" I shouted. "You disappeared these days, where were you? Thanks god, I put a miniature tracker in your clothes. Oh, where did you get this spaceship?" Dad looked angry. "Dad, please listen to me. A few days ago, I saw something from grandpa…"I told my father all of my amazing experiences before I started traveling. But my father just didn't care about it, he said:" His theory again! I said earlier it was impossible! We can't get anything from aliens!" "But, dad..." "No but! Go back home with me immediately!"
     At this time, Viola said:" Sir, they are going to help me to go back to Celeste, maybe you can find some ways to treat the strange disease there..." "And, dad, we just did as grandpa told us to do, we crossed a wormhole and arrived in another star! That's true!" I explained hurriedly. "Alas...There's nothing else to do about you, we don't have a better way about the disease, the only thing I can do is to believe you this time." Dad said reluctantly. "But you should go back home with me when leaving Celeste, there is no need to discuss about that. " Dad entered our spaceship soon.
     "OK! Let me show you the way to Celeste, it won't be too far." Viola sat down and looked ahead. My eyes moved to the map of position, there was a green highlight on the screen. Suddenly, a star appeared on the screen, I raised my head, it was a star with color of blue and green, as our spaceship got closer to the star, all of us couldn't help opening our mouths, the tectonic of the star was almost the same as the earth, the only difference was that the area of green was much bigger than that on our earth, " What's up?" Viola felt strange when she saw that we were surprised, "It is similar to the earth!" Qiao cried. "What are the gases made up of on your star?" Dad asked the girl while he was driving the spaceship. All of us were addicted to the nature that was similar to the earth. It seems that dad is the only one who can keep clam. "The gases on my planet is same as those on earth. So you can go outside without wearing spacesuit." "That's great! " We shouted. "So we are going to enter it!"
      "After a strong shaking, it was light green, and soon, white clouds appeared, through the clouds, the whole city appeared gradually. There were boundless green fields, lush forests, rivers shuttle, they have light colors, groups of birds were flying in the sky, and many animals were running on land, I had only seen some of them in pictures, as I was surprised with Qiao and Bin, our spaceship landed steadily.
      "Maybe although the star where Viola lives is similar to the earth, it is more developed than the earth." Dad said. "OK! Here we go!" Dad opened the door. We got off, as if we return back to the earth.
     Viola led us to the house nearby. And we saw a man and a woman standing by the table when the transparent door opened. Viola shouted in an unfamiliar language and then rushed toward to them. Two persons smiled. But when they saw us, they seemed to be surprised. Then Viola said something to them and they turned into a room inside with smile. When they came out, each of them had held a machine like Viola's to translate the language. "They're my parents." Viola introduced.
     "Hello, thanks for sending Viola back!"
    "It doesn't matter."

Viola said that there was a rare plague on earth.

     "Viola said that there was a rare plague on earth, so could you tell me something about the symptoms?"
     "Sure, the patients will fever and don't cure, and they may die because of the fever."
     "Please wait," Viola's dad opened the machine next to him and finding something, "Oh, it's this virus!"
     "So, do you have solution?"
     "A month ago, a person here visited other planet, and when he came back, he got ill like this, maybe he went to earth. Unfortunately, we couldn't save him. However, we kept that virus as a sample and kept working on it. We used our experience and technology and theoretically found out 70% about it, but we haven't found one thing yet. We are now finding a material which can decompose the venom of the variable mosquitoes. If we can't decompose it, our work in the past will be waste. So we are still finding the solution."
      "So, that means we are facing the same problem," Dad said, and turned to me, "Once I have told you, your grandpa's ideas are not......"
     "Wait!" I interrupted Dad. I rushed out of the house, came back to the spaceship. The insects were still flying in the bottle on the table. I held the bottle and rushed back. People in the room all focused on the bottle. "The insects in this bottle was found in a distant planet, Grandpa had marked on these insects. They had died out already on earth. Please tell me if they are useful." Dad looked at the insects. Viola's father held the bottle and nodded. Then he opened a transparent box next to him, in the box, there is something in dark red. "This box can keep the things in it fresh, and the blood in it has virus." Then he opened the cover, and let the insects in from the opening on the lateral wall. To our surprise, the free insects got together around the blood. Everyone felt surprised. The dark red blood changed bright red at once! "This......this is the material we are finding! I will clone them immediately and added the medicine we developed in the past! And in this way, the solution has nearly been found. We will do an exam to make sure it can't do harm to people. If it's safe, it's means that we have cured this plague!" We were all very exciting. "People will be saved!" Qiao and Bin jumped happily. Unknowingly, I laughed as well.

(Two months later)

     "Good, now people are recovered." Mother was answering the phone from hospital, dad sat at the table, looked out of the window, I came in and followed his direction to look outside, people regained vigor, rows of trees also full of up, I heard that experienced this incident, the pollution also processed. I think about all this, smiled. "Maybe I was wrong." "Oh?" This is the first time I heard dad said he was wrong, "dad's idea really makes sense, "I always wanted to light depend on my own strength, but... but now I understand him, we can learn from each star." My father and I smiled, at this moment, the wall screen opened, there was a girl's image, "This is Viola!" I shouted, "I have been landed in earth, you come to meet us, my parents come too, they want to communicate with your father!" OK!" I say, "dad, come on, let's go!" Father nodded, I rushed to the hall, opened the door.
     Outside, everything was shining brightly.

 

附中文版:(A version of Chinese)
重返光明
倒上一杯咖啡,坐在透明的圆形玻璃前向外看。窗外的宇宙空间黑暗无垠。星球像一
粒粒圆润的砂石躺在漆黑的绸缎里,放射出些许光亮。那些直径巨大的存在,在宇宙的广博
里也显得那般渺小。
任谁都很难想象这是在外太空,在一艘宇航船上,没有氧气罩和太空服就可以在飞船内
自由走动,就像在地球上一样。这是因为飞船上有一个特制的重力装置,这个装置自动调节
飞船地板对飞船内物体的引力,模拟出地球的环境,飞船外部有一层厚厚的隔热板,隔热板
里有充足的淡水和制备氧气的原料,并在消耗的同时不断再生,从而源源不断地调节飞船内
部的氧气含量,让人可以自由呼吸。
我是个普通的高中生,不得不承认的是以上这些高科技并非出自我的手,而是我的爷爷。
爷爷在地球上是个环境学专家和天文学家,他将自己的一生全都贡献给了对环境以及天文的
研究,但是,人们不能理解他的研究,都说他是"疯子"。
"傻小子,想什么呢?"我的思路瞬间被安乔打断,他是我最好的哥们儿,也是我硬拉
他来陪我的,当人被我硬拉来的不止他一个,还有苏缤,"没什么。""你一定又在想你爷爷,
你还是想不明白你爷爷到底想说什么吗?"我没有说话,低下头,思绪又被拉回从前。
三个月前,地球上突然爆发了一种罕见离奇的瘟疫,并且是全球性的,瘟疫的传染源是
一种变异的蚊子,由于人类生活发展的需要,只是各种环境问题的骤然爆发,环境越来越差,
普通蚊子由于长期生活在各种化学微粒间发生了变异,这种蚊子自身携带着太多的化学物
质,这些物质混合、反应,生成了一种特殊的,目前人类所不可知的物质,直到现在医生、
科学家都没办法找到治疗这种瘟疫的办法。
爷爷在一月以前感染瘟疫去世了,我在整理爷爷遗物的时候偶然发现了一个厚厚的笔记
本,在本子的最后一页上,整齐地书写者一行字:"永远隐藏在阳光背后的地方,流浪者沉
睡在日出的方向"。我当然不明白这是什么意思,于是暂时把它放在一边,这时,另一样东
西引起了我的注意,那是一些标本,都是已经灭绝了的小虫子的标本,旁边写着灭绝的年份,
有很早就灭绝的也有最近的几十年里刚刚灭绝的,其中的一个十分特别,能发出蓝光,爷爷
用粗粗的红笔在名称上做了标记,α虫,奇怪的名字。这些稀奇古怪的虫子无不时刻提醒着
人类要爱护地球,可现实情况却""
我真正了解到爷爷的研究其实是在他去世之后的第二个星期,那天,我去地下室找东西,
无意中碰开了地下室的一扇门,那里曾经是爷爷的实验室,在好奇心的驱使下,我走了进去。
里面的景象使我惊呆了,我从没想过爷爷的实验室有如此之大,大概要有一个操场那么大。
爷爷的研究室阴暗寒冷,透着一股阴森的气息,一瞬间,我脑中闪过爷爷的笔记本上的
奇怪的话"永远隐藏在阳光背后的地方",这个想法让我兴奋起来,地下室不就是永远隐藏
在阳光背后的地方吗?那么"流浪者"是谁呢?
我环顾四周,突然发现一张描绘着宇宙的地图上有一个绿色的标记,在黑暗中闪着微弱
的荧光,仔细看去,才发现那是一个按钮,在按钮的下方写着"流浪者"!
我怀着兴奋与期待的心情按下了按钮,不可思议的事情发生了,地下室开始微微震动,
在地下室的东侧墙壁上出现了裂痕,不一会一艘巨大的飞船出现在我眼前,墙上伸出一个小
小的投影仪,射出了爷爷的影像。
爷爷对我说:"多少年来,我一直在辛苦钻研人类与宇宙,环境与自然,两年前,我终
于发现了宇宙的秘密,我利用这两年一直在探索反物质,这种反物质能够与虫洞中巨大的引
力中和,从而实现人类到达遥远星球的梦想,这样也许就可以找到另一个适合人类居住的星
球,并且,我们可以像外星人请教我们还无法解决的问题。但是我的研究却因为最近的一场
瘟疫而终止了,为了研究瘟疫的解决办法,我暂时搁置了飞船的研究,经过我的研究,我发
现治疗这种瘟疫的方法很简单,但是却缺少一种关键材料,那就是"""影像到这里戛然而
止。
从地下室出来,我试图说服爸爸来看看爷爷的研究,但是爸爸一口回绝了我,他并不相
信爷爷的理论,简直是个专制的独裁者。于是我叫来了我的两个朋友一起乘坐爷爷留给我们
的飞船,利用事先保存在飞船内的反物质穿越了虫洞,为了寻找爷爷所说的治疗瘟疫的方法,
尽管我不知道具体到哪里去找,但是我相信爷爷。
"嘀嘀嘀嘀嘀"一阵急促的信号搅乱了我的回忆,这是传来了苏缤的叫声"快来看看!
这里怎么了?!"我急忙赶过去,之间控制屏幕上一片鲜红,显示"程序错误","这是什么
鬼东西!"我心里暗暗说道。我们三个都只是不同的高中生,只接受过训练,但从没开过飞
船,这让我们三个手忙脚乱起来,在飞船失去动力的一瞬间我心里大喊一声"完了",紧接
着就是"轰"的一声,我知道飞船坠毁了,我失去了知觉。
我醒来时,安乔和苏缤已经醒了,我们穿好飞船内的宇航服一起走出飞船。
这里仿佛是一片荒原,我原本对我们的生存已经不抱任何希望了,但让我惊喜的是这
里居然拥有与地球一样的特点,山川、河流、各种生物,只不过天空是寒冷的紫色,仿佛就
压在各个山头,这里也没有大型生物的存在,显得缺少了许多生气。"瞧!那边,好多虫子
啊!"安乔笑道,"咱们……离它们远一点吧。""不就是虫子吗?有什么稀奇?"我笑着看苏
缤,又看看那些虫,但那里竟是一团蓝光,"难道这…..这是,哈哈,我们找到啦!""找到什
么?"安乔问, "我爷爷提到的α虫!""能治病吗?""还不清楚,但是先带上吧!"
我用透明瓶子把它们装起来,有些飞跑了,但仍有许多进来了,无论怎样,我对爷爷的研究
是有信心的!
我们回到飞船内部,试图寻找解决办法,出乎意料,我又找到了爷爷留下的另一段影
像,他详细地描述了飞船可能出现的故障,按照他的话,我们修好了飞船,谢天谢地,这个
星球不算荒凉,能够找到许多常见资源,补充好飞船燃料和水,带上α虫,我们找到虫洞的
入口,不知道会穿越到哪里呢?
从虫洞穿越过来,我们仨从窗外望去,顿时充满了惊讶。眼前是从来没有来过的宇宙
空间,美丽,又有一点寂寞。
"我们没有回到地球?这是哪里呀?"我问安乔。"用宇宙导航仪试试看!希望现在已
经到导航仪存有地图的范围了。"安乔说着打开导航仪,少顷屏幕上出现了数据,他高兴地
说:"太好了!我们离地球不算很远,因为这里已经存有了这块空间的详细数据。也许可以
先查点资料"""正说着,屏幕上突然闪烁起了求救的图标,闪了几下就消失了,过了一会
儿又闪了起来。"是不是有人遇难了?"苏缤担心地说。"看,那边有人放信号弹!就在离我
们最近的那颗金黄色的星球上!"我惊呼,"资料上说,那颗星叫落日余晖(Sunset Glow)。"
说着,他们确定了信号发出的具体坐标,赶忙把飞船降落在了金色星球上。
终于看清了,有一艘像一节火车厢一样的飞船停在陆地上,看起来受到过猛烈的撞击,
已有破坏的痕迹。我们走下飞船,看到一个小女孩冲我们跑来。她看起来与地球人无异,不
过后颈上有一对银色透明的小翅膀。"小妹妹,你一个人在这里吗?"女孩举着一个小小的
方盒子对着我们,女孩说话了,声音从盒子里传来:"很高兴认识你们,地球上的朋友。我
叫薇拉,今年十岁,来自Cleste 星。"我们向她伸出手,热情地握了握。"呵呵,这个小盒子
是智能翻译机,我们曾录入过地球的语言,所以现在可以由它来为我们翻译啦。"
薇拉把我们带到"火车厢"边上,说:"上星期我偷偷从家里跑出来,驾着老爸的飞船
出来玩,没想到飞船这么容易坏,我才自由自在地漫游了几个小时,不小心按错一个按键,
它就失去动力掉下去了!刚好落在了这颗黎明之星(Dayspring)上。""也许下次你该小心
点。"我们都笑了。
"薇拉,这么长时间一直在等待吗?"苏缤问道。"是啊!信号发射设备在我坠落的时
候摔坏了,只能发出非常微弱的信号,估计巡逻队找不到这里!还好食物足够,我就等着有
人路过。幸好遇到了你们!"薇拉拿出一张宇宙地图,指给两个人看:"这颗绿色的星球,就
是我来自的celeste 星,那里有一望无际的树林和美丽平静的湖泊。我生活的地方面对着一
片原始山林,各种各样的动植物自由地生活着,一年四季空气都是那样洁净""""啊,那
不正是我们所追求的世界吗?"我感慨着。"可惜,虽然无数人曾努力地治理地球环境,技
术高超的不法之徒们总是逍遥法外,为了自己的利益带来永远无法弥补的大片荒漠"""苏
缤黯然神伤。想着自己黄色土壤裸露在外的故乡,想着现在正面临着生命逝去的地球伙伴,
我们三个异口同声地说:"薇拉,我们这就送你回Celeste,然后我们就要赶紧启程去找解除
怪病的方法了!"
薇拉坐着他们的飞船,向家乡飞去。苏缤把地球上怪病的事情都讲给了薇拉。女孩边
听边睁大了眼睛,最后她说:"哦!这种病我知道啊!其实,我父母就在医学研究所工作,
他们也投入在这种病的研究中""不过,我们也没有找到确切的解决方法。"我们不禁加快
了飞行的速度。
突然,一架小型飞船出现在远处,而且是径直地向他们飞来,停在XX 号前面挡住了
它。"怎么回事?"我疑惑地嘟囔。这时屏幕上出现了通话请求,一个面带愠色的中年叔叔
出现在屏幕上。"爸爸?"我叫道。"消失这么多天,你去哪了?幸好我在你衣服里装有微型
追踪器。对了,飞船哪里来的?"看来爸爸很生气。"爸,你听我说,前几天我在爷爷那里
看到了"""我把出发前的惊人经历悉数告诉了爸爸。爸爸不以为然地说:"又是他的那些
理论!我早就说了那是不可能的。我们不可能从外星人那里得到任何东西!""可是,爸爸"""
"没有可是,你快点跟我回去!现在就走!"
这时薇拉说话了:"叔叔,他们现在是要送我回celeste 星,我们那里说不准能有解决你
们怪病的方法""""而且,爸爸,我们真的按照爷爷说说,穿越虫洞到了A 星!这是真的!"
我着急地解释着。"哎""真是拿你们没办法。现在怪病真是一点进展都没有,那我就暂且
相信你们一回。"爸爸很勉强地说,"不过,离开了C 星,你立刻跟我回家!这可再没商量
了。"不久,爸爸进入了我们的飞船。
"好,那么我给你们带路,不会太远。" 薇拉坐到椅子上,目视远方,蓝色的眸子望向
前方的黑暗,我的目光移到定位图上,屏幕上一个碧绿色的亮点穿梭着,忽然屏幕中出现了
一颗星球,我抬起头,是一颗碧绿与蓝色相间的星,随着飞船慢慢接近,我们所有人都不禁
张大了嘴——那星球的构造几乎和地球一模一样,就是绿色覆盖的地方比地球多了不知多少
倍,"怎么了?"薇拉见我们吃惊的样子,一时摸不清头脑,"这……这简直太像地球了!"
安乔叫出来了。"你的星球上的气体成分是什么?"爸爸开着飞船问女孩,我们所有人都沉
溺在这颗星球与地球的相似性之中,好像只有他还保持着清醒的头脑,"我的星球上的气体
和地球上的是一样的,所以你们可以不用穿宇航服了。" "这简直太好了!"我们说。"那么,
咱们要进去了!"
一阵强烈的震荡过后,是明亮的绿色,不久白色的云层出现,穿过云层后,整个城市便
渐渐浮现了,这里有广阔无边的绿野,有郁郁葱葱的树林,其中河流和溪水在其间穿梭,透
出清亮的色彩。天空中飞着成群的大鸟,陆地上许多动物奔跑着,有那么多都是我只在图片
里见过的。我正和安乔、苏缤感慨着,飞船已经稳稳着陆了。
"相比薇拉的星球尽管和地球很像,但还是会比我们发达吧。"爸爸说。飞船着陆了,
"好了,我们到了。"爸爸开启了外部舱门,我们走出舱门,就好像回到地球一样。
薇拉带我们进入旁边一座房子,透明大门打开,只见一男一女站在桌前,薇拉惊叫,
扑到两人身上,两人微笑,但当他们看到我们时,表情很诧异,薇拉又跟他们说了什么,然
后他们便笑着转身进入了里面的房间,等他们出来时,身边已然多了一个和薇拉一样的语言
转换器,"这是我的爸爸妈妈。"薇拉向我们介绍。
"你们好,谢谢你们送薇拉回来。"
"没关系。"
"听薇拉说了,你们地球上流行一种怪病,能向我们叙述一下症状吗?或许能够帮上
你们。"
"患者会高烧不退,最后发烧至死。"
"请等一下,"薇拉的爸爸打开身旁的机器,好像在寻找什么"啊,原来是这种病毒。"
"怎么样?有解决的办法吗?"
"一个月前,我们星球曾有人到过别的星球,回来便染这种病了,他很可能去了地球,
但很可惜,我们没能救活他,但我们留下了病毒样本并且不断研究,这段时间里,我们依靠
技术和以往的经验,理论上已经研究出了大概70%,但还差一点,我们仍在找一种能够分
解变异毒蚊的毒液的材料,如果不能分解它,那么我们之前的理论工作也都是白费了,我们
也在想办法。"
"看来,我们两个星球正面临着同样的问题,"爸爸苦笑一下,转向我,"我早说过,你
爷爷的理论是行不通的….."
"等等!"我打断了爸爸的话,我冲出屋门,回到飞船里,桌子上那个透明的瓶子里,
小虫仍在不停地飞,我一把抓住瓶子,又返了回去,屋里的人都盯着我手中的瓶,"这瓶子
里的小虫是在一颗很遥远的星上发现的,爷爷曾在这种虫子上面做过标记,是地球上现已灭
绝的昆虫,看看这个会有用吗?"爸爸盯着小虫,薇拉的爸爸接过瓶子并点点头,打开身旁
桌子上一个透明箱子,箱底有几滴暗红色的液体,"这个箱子能够长期保质,里面的血液样
本中有病毒。"说着就打开盖子,将虫子顺着一个侧壁的开口放入,令我们惊讶的是,那些
本已自由了的小虫却都聚集到底下,所有人都看呆了,不一会原本暗红得发黑的血液变的鲜
红,"这…这就是能够分解病毒的昆虫啊!我马上将这些虫子克隆,然后再加上原来研制的
药品调和,这样一来,解药就几乎制好了,再做一个安全测试,确保没有问题后,这种病,
就被我们治愈了!"我们所有人都按耐不住心中的喜悦,"人们终于有救啦!"安乔和苏缤跳
了起来,不知不觉,我也笑出声来。
(两个月后)
"太好了,现在人们都康复了。"妈妈接着院长打来的电话,爸爸坐在桌边,望向窗外,
