The Secret

Post by Suomy Nona » Sun Jun 16, 2019 4:19 pm

Ethel sits in the grass looking up at the stars. She’s thinking about how much she hates science class and all its rules and theories. Tomorrow’s lessons will be about space, and she knows she will hate it.

She likes how the stars twinkle; it makes her think of glitter. She doesn’t want her teacher to take that away from her. Reality doesn’t have to be so organized and boring.

She pours her longing into the universe, picturing herself amidst glittering stars.

Ethel stands, amazed that it worked.
The beautiful stars fall all around her, opening the world to chaos.
