Apollo 18, We’re Back! Fiction by SCW.

West took his first step on the lunar surface, slowly swinging his head around to glance at his extraordinary surroundings. He took a deep breath, feeling the isolation of the moment and glaring at the blue planet above him.
West hit a button on his sleeve. “Houston, I have left the lunar module and am setting up the live cam.”

“That affirmative Apollo. We are waiting with many TV cameras waiting for the setup. Eyes of the world will be watching.” Static interrupted Houston over the speaker.
He finished setting up the camera tripod and solar panels, slowly walking back to switch on the video for a live worldwide feed.

“Okay Houston. You should have live video in 5, 4, 3…” West almost froze in horror as he heard a powerful humming noise emanating from behind him causing his very suit to vibrate. He pressed the button on his bulky suit sleeve, but as he turned around toward the camera, he saw a back of what looked like a cute little squirrel peering into the live cam. “Houston, we have a problem.”
But it was too late. The world now knew the truth. The horror of it all.
