A Tale in Space

by Hanzzer | Score: 5300

I laid wide awake at night. My ears were ringing loudly. It was quiet in the night. Too quiet. My head was filled with too many thoughts...thoughts about all that's happened during the day...thoughts that I still have no knowledge about. As I lay in bed, my mind wandered out into the vast universes of the night, thinking about the unlimited galaxies outside. I thought about how life would be like when I go out into space tomorrow. To see the open universe. 

I have given a lot of money for this project. I even lent a lot of money for to my lover so that he could come up on this journey with me. We both met each other at a science fair many many years ago, and it was only then when we realized our passion for outer space. We fell in love that day, although we were only in elementary, but now our love could be taken up in the stars.  He loved to play the piano as well. One of his dreams were to take a piano into outer space and play it. As much as I would support him, I knew that it was nearly impossible. 

As morning came, my boyfriend came to my house, bringing me eggs for breakfast. We ate breakfast earlier that morning, and as always we made jokes. It was easy to make me laugh. Sometimes, my boyfriend would say I laugh uncontrollably over the simplest jokes. 

As we left the house, my boyfriend makes sure that i have everything that I need. As we drove, I called my sister to make sure that she would come to my house regularly to feed my turtle, Timmy. She says yes, then she laughed and bid me good luck. 

"Hey." my boyfriend suddenly asks. "Do you think we could get married in space?" 

"Get married in space?" I ask. 

"We could bring Judge Parker." my boyfriend said. 

"Yeah, but that judge is the slowest judge ever." I say. 

Just then, I say a scary picture my little brother sent me. A zombie. A gave a scream and laughed.
