BITTENThe auburn leaves danced across the dark empty street; the lamppost light flickering slightly. It was late October...in fact, the next day would be Halloween.
"Ooh, Dib! I think I saw something." I turned to face Jac and smiled.
"Really? lemme see," I looked through the telescope and began to focus it. "where at?" she put her hand on my shoulder and pointed over towards the direction of the almost-full moon.
"Over there; about three stars away on the left side." I was about to say it was a plane, but then it began to move in every direction, slowly. suddenly, it shot towards the center of the sky and then moved towards a line of four stars. it flashed, and then the four stars all flashed, one by one in response; then, they all vanished.
"...Whoa," We faced each other with excited expressions.
"That was amazing!" she cried, grinning. I nodded fiercely.
"Whoo, it sure is cold out tonight," Jac said, rubbing her arms. she had goose bumps, and I could see her breath a little.
