And if the trees refused to obey there would be no mating....The rumbling came again, and sounded nearer. Cadnan thought of machines shaking his small room, perhaps making it hot as the machines made metal hot. If that happened, he knew, he would die.
Cadnan said: "I am Cadnan."The strange voice hesitated a second, but its words, when it did speak, were in a tone that was peaceful enough.

Because it's going to be a long, long time before they develop anything like a solid civilization, kiddo. And in the meantime a lot of them are going to die of things we can prevent. Right? And how'd you like that, Dodd? How would you like that?""Johnny, please ... Johnny ... come on, now. Come on. You'll be safe. You don't want to die...."详情
