Stars

“Do you think that a star could ever land on earth?” Solace asked, looking up at the sky.

“Don’t be ridiculous.” Sylvia said as she rolled over in the grass. “Stars don’t fall, only asteroids do and they’re just rocks.”

She leaned upright with her elbows as she looked back at Solace. His golden-brown eyes were staring at the sky. He almost looked like he was dreaming.

“Solace?” she whispered.

“Hmm?”

“Just checking.” Sylvie turned on to her back and put her hand over her heart. That’s where the locket rested. Her treasured locket with a secret spell. Solace blinked once, twice, three times and then said. “It really is so beautiful, isn’t it? Sylvia, who do you think made all this stuff?”

Sylvia gazed back at the sky. She had wondered that too, just never out loud.

“Oh Solace,” she said “I’m not sure we will ever know.”

Solace smiled “I think we should try to find out.”
