In a far-flung corner of the cosmos, there existed a girl named Lily. Her locks were black, and her irises the darkest blue. She took great delight in horseback riding and perusing prohibited literature. She was a curious and adventurous soul, ever eager to explore new things.
One morning, Lily awoke and found herself completely alone, floating in the dark, cold emptiness of space, with no other humans in sight. She panicked. Her heart pounded like a rabbit’s foot, and she screamed, “Help! Help me!”
The words should have been a raging, fearful, ear-piercing shriek, but the dark, frigid void sucked the sounds away and dampened her cries. Tears poured into Lily’s sapphire eyes. She floundered about and tore at her clothes, but as she flapped her arms and legs, a force unknown lifted her higher and higher into the lightless sky. She had a strange new ability: she could fly.
