The sky is dark, and because it is dark, I, Stella, will soon cease to exist. Even though the sun has gone down, no lights line the streets, there are no clouds in the sky, and it's pitch dark, no stars are visible. They disappeared a few years ago, leaving us with nothing but the sun and ...

I look up at the first star in the sky, and wish with all my might for life to be different. I can barely see the sky from my vantage point, but the star twinkles in the dusk. Like it's promising me something great, but at the same time, telling me not to get my hopes up too much.

Not again! I groan as my eyes blink open and I find my sister’s foot shoved up in my face. I wiggle out from under her and close my eyes again and try to go back to sleep. But the day is against me. <BEEP BEEP BEEP> The light turns on and a tired-looking girl bends down and turns off th...
