One night, we were sitting outside in the cold, waiting for the first star to come out. After a little while of waiting, darkness nearly enveloped us, but soon… A lone ray of light shattered the blackness. A star shone through. As soon as we saw it, we prayed with all our might:
“Star, please grant our wish. We want a cool million, right here, right now.”
We waited for an hour out in the cold dark night. Soon, many stars were glinting around, taunting us. Soon, we gave up and walked inside. We never did get those millions. Wishing stars are hoaxes.
