The Light Catcher Ch.1The dark, navy blue sky was lit with a million neon orbs of light that seemed to wander slowly about the universe like lost fireflies.
On this summer night, the emerald grass made nearly silent whispers as the silver-cloaked child, as lost as the glows, made his way across the field.
He looked up at the lights and watch them come together and go apart; seemingly bouncing off one another, yet never touching--coming and going in a sort of cosmic dance.
The bright colors of rose, lemon, day-glow orange, cerulean, lime, and orchid flew across the darkness, leaving a trail of glitter in their path which then floated down to the planet of Magentis. The old folklore speaks that if any living creature were able to catch a sparkle of these night dancers, they could wish and it would come to reality.
The boy turned his white and electric blue eyes to the moon of their planet, known as Dritadon, sighing lightly, and clutching the silver blue pendent around his neck before continuing o
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.

"...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.
How It Began"God, your two o'clock is here."
"I have a two o'clock?"
"He's been here since 7:45. I figured it's only polite to... sir."
God sighed. "Fine, send him in."
While He waited God cleared His desk of papers and blueprints; no need for outsiders to see His plans. Soon enough the door to His office opened and God stood, smiled, held out a hand towards one of the two visitor's chairs.
"God! Great stuff you're doing in sector 2-7-0! Great stuff!"
The man's hands were clammy, his handshake limp. Rumpled suit, porkpie hat, briefcase... oh Jes-- oh dear, a salesman. God's smile slipped a little but He soldiered on gamely. With luck He could shoo the poor guy away in a few minutes.
"So, what can I do for you?"
The man sat, briefcase across his knees. "Sector 2-7-0! Everyone's talking about it! What do you call it? Man and merman?"
"Man and woman, actually. And thanks. But we're pretty busy around here, and..."
