Hey, there! I had been wanting to write a story about stars recently. Here are some related stories: http://lilliandarnell.com/2016/07/11/reach-for-stars/ and http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/23/why-trees-dance-in-the-wind/. So I hope you enjoy the story!
Once many centuries ago, there lived a starry-eyed princess who wore shiny and shimmery gold, white. and silver dresses. The princess longed to know what stars’ life would be like.
The princess’ name was Starry-Goldie. Starry liked anything that had to do with stars. One day, Starry went to her sister, Princess Spark-Animalie who was nicknamed Judi or Judy for short.
Starry said, “Please tell me what the stars’ life is like, Judy. Can I go up to the sky to find out for myself? “. “I can’t exactly tell you what the stars’ life is like, Goldi. Yes, you can go up to the sky to find out for yourself under one condition. You must promise to be back by dawn tomorrow”, said Spark as she walked off to her personal library.
Starry promised she would be back by dawn tomorrow. So Starry went to her bedroom to pack some of her gorgeous dresses and other essential stuff she needed for her trip. After Starry finished packing, she decided to leave this afternoon as she knew that where the stars live is pretty far from where she lived.
Starry flew up into the sky slowly and knew she would be back on time. So by the time, Starry reached the part of the sky where the stars lived, it was early evening where she lived.
Starry went to go find Staricial, the leader of stars. When she found Staricial, Starry said, “Hi, there! I came from planet Earth and I’ve seen you look down at the Earth every night. I had been wondering what your stars’ life is like. Also before I forget, I have very limited time tonight.”
“Greetings! I’ve seen you look up every night at me and my stars. How would you like to be a star for a night? I know, I’ve heard that you have only until dawn tomorrow before you head home. I’ve got to give you a warning though. If you forget to go back home to Earth by dawn, you’ll be a star forever. “, said Staricial in a deep booming voice.
Starry said, “Great, I would love to be a star for a night. I will also try to remember that warning. Thank you!”. So Staricial granted her to be a star for the night. Meanwhile, Spark was looking up at the sky wondering if the new star was Starry.
Starry got know star people and instantly knew that she had been one of the star people long ago. Anyway, Starry got so caught up in meeting star people that Starry had forgotten to head back to Earth by dawn.
By the time Starry realized that she needed to be on Earth, it was already too late. Starry needed someone to tell Spark what happened to her. Luckily, a white horse told Starry she would love to deliver a message to Spark. So Starry wrote her message down.
The white horse flew down to Earth to find Spark to show her the message. Naturally, Spark was very ashamed of what her sister did but she was also very glad that Starry found her previous family. Starry said that she wanted to change her name to Star to match her location.
Now Starry always looks down at Spark while Spark looks up at Starry throughout the evening. Every night before Spark goes to bed, she says Goodnight to Starry. If you ever see a star at night, chances are it might be Starry looking down at her relatives on Earth.
That’s the end of the story. I hope you enjoyed my story!
