After the people on Mars hear about what happened on Mars, Harry is determined to build a rocket so he can go back to earth with his family. The other people on Mars laugh at him and tell him to take a break and relax.
Eventually, Harry was convinced that he should take a break and go swimming. in the canal with everyone and that he could finish the rocket in the fall when it was cooler.
When the canals dry up, the people on Mars leave their human houses and head for the Martain Villas. Bittering and his family start speaking the Martain language out of nowhere, change their names, and are completely changed into Martain. From there dark skin and Gold eyes, they are completely Martin.
Five years later, A rocket fell from the sky and landed on Mars. A commander and his men Shout out "WE WON THE WAR ON EARTH. WE ARE HERE TO TAKE YOU HOME." But when they look around, they only saw the empty colony of human houses and 600 to 800 native Martians. Then they rant about how they need to rename everything like the mountains and canals.
