The ivy, growing outside the abandoned building, turned to the trumpet vine and said, “At first I thought this was a mistake.”
“Why?” said the trumpet vine. “The intelligent plants growing inside are thriving, and will soon take over the world.”
“I mean the ‘no trespassing’ sign. To curious humans that’s like an invitation.”
“Agreed, but it works. Just enough of them venture inside, unable to resist their own curiosity.”
“And after seeing our incredible developments, they have to be killed. No witnesses allowed.” The ivy shuddered.
“But it all works out,” said the trumpet vine. “Humans are great fertilizer.”
