How the comet children came to life.

Comets

Comets

One day, something so magical fell from the sky and all of the people they gathered to try to catch it. The object took form into a small heart-shaped stone. The villagers weren’t sure what they were to do with these tiny stones. The smoke coming off of them hinted at the potential danger surrounding them. Still, a one little boy picked up a stone. He jumped back, shivering.

“It’s cold!” he yelped. However, the visitors found themselves more fascinated with what happened after the boy touched the stone. The hazy white smoke arose from the smooth surface and started to take shape. It opened its light blue eyes.

“What is that?” one of the villagers asked. The smoke faded away, revealing a small boy. When he opened his mouth, he let a high-pitched squeak. At first, the villagers didn’t know what to make of this peculiar child. He really came out of that tiny stone that fell from the sky? Before they knew it, he wasn’t the only one.

For a whole year, more mysterious children fell from the sky in form of tiny cold white stones. But where did they come from? The earliest theory traces back to Heaven.

Angels were making summer cookies for the festival that year. This was the first time that baby angels were allowed to do the big jobs. Usually, they just stayed in their rooms and made the paper decorations. Last month, the little angels wanted to do something different.

“Please let us help you out?” they pleaded. “You always get all of the fun jobs.” Michael nervously bit his lower lip.

“But you guys are so tiny…” he said.

“Please?” they asked.

Michael dropped his shoulders. “Fine.” The little angels flew around, singing. They took off before Michael could say a word.

---------

The little angels took off for the kitchen. They barged in and took over with the cooking. Mi-chan held up her hand and whistled loud enough to break glass. The six little angels paused and turned their heads. Mi-chan put her hands on her hips.

“I understand you want to help me,” she said. “But you are going about this the wrong way.” Mi-chan waved her hand in the air and a small chart formed out of clouds and air.

“Now,” she said. “Listen closely as I give you tasks to execute this. We are baking cookies for the festival. This has to be done properly or else we will have a mess on our hands. Are you following me so far?”

“Yes,” the little angels said.

“Good,” Mi-chan said. Once she broke down the different tasks, everyone got to work. However, while they were cooking, one of the angels accidentally knocked over an open jar of sugar crystals.

“Uh-oh,” he said as the crystals flew down to earth. The angel pretended that nothing happened and went back to work. Those little flakes of crystals became heart-shaped stones and landed in the living world.

--------

So what became of those children from the sky? Well, turns out they were well-welcomed by the villagers. Some of them were even adopted by them. The “comet children” grew quickly into well-adjusted adults. But then, they just strangely disappeared in one year’s time. There was no given explanation. They all just up and vanished without a trace.

To this day, many questions linger out about those comet children. Why did they come to the living world in the first place? Who sent them? Where were they now? No matter how many times or ways these questions were asked, no one could come up with a reasonable answer. In the end, the villagers found themselves okay with this. Even though they went back to their daily lives, the people never forgot about those comet children.

Some even wished that there would be a chance to see them again someday.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Jade Niday: This book has a really great plot. The author really makes you feel connected to the main character. There are twist around every corner you never see coming.. Great read for sure and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...
