In outer space
IT was a dark night. I was in deep sleep. My eyes were open but I wasn’t at home. I felt like there was no gravity pulling against me. I realised I was in outer space.
I felt the wind blowing past my head and feet. I looked up and saw a large galaxy. It was Saturn, a planet with lots of rings that keep spinning.
Using my spaceship, I decided to explore planet Jupiter. Due to its far distance, it took a while to reach Jupiter.
When I finally reached the planet, I felt tired. In Jupiter, I saw an interesting cafe named Jubs Pub. It was a modern cafe with astronauts from all over the universe. I walked timidly and sat down next to a girl named Caira.
Caira and I got along well. After having a meal at Jubs Pub, we walked to a nearby mall called Jubbllee’s Mall. It had many items such as teeshirts, keychains and accessories. I picked up a bracelet and soon discovered all items in the shop were free. I took many bracelets and bags, too.
Suddenly, I was awakened by my mun. I do wish to meet Caira in real life, although I knew it was merely a dream. I’m happy God has given us such a beautiful and amazing solar system. –
