The Meteor

Changes are shown in between (    ).

Story for a short comic I want to do. Images coming soon.




Once upon a time...

A starry-eyed girl with her head in the clouds lived in a small farming town, raised by her poor but loving grandparents. She looked for ways to learn more about about the stars and planets so far away, despite her town's lack of interest in such things. Her grandparents saved up a lot of money and eventually bought her an old, used telescrope.

And every day....

She searches through local libraries for books on the subject, but doesn't find much besides an old musty book. Every night, after helping with the crops, and her chores, she'd look through her telescope at the thousands of stars in the sky.

Until one day...

Just when she is thinking of giving up on her hobby she discovers that a meteor shower will be visible over her town. However the threat of rain clouds threaten her chance to see such an exciting event. The only way she can avoid them is to move to higher ground in the forest( but her town has forbidden the children from going into the woods. They say it's an eerie forest, and that many children have gone missing inside it. All of the adults avoid it completely, and eventually their kids do the same. )

Because of this....

(Unwilling to loose her only chance at seeing a meteor shower the girl sneaks into the forest- but not before she's seen by the boy next door. Having had a crush on her for a long time, the boy decides to follow her, though he's afraid of the forest. )As she's going through the forest a giant meteor much bigger than the others, streaks through the sky and crash lands on the hill. The girl follows the crash site and sees a giant rock in the ground, sorrounded by a strange blue smoke. She sees a trail of this strange blue material and follows it.

Because of this...

She discovers the trail leading to an old, abandoned observatory. Sneaking inside she discovers that the blue trails where left behind by a shy alien spirit. She befriends it and it shows her that theres a lot more to the universe than what her book shows by making a map on the floor.

Until finally....

They hear a loud sound and the alien spirit is spooked and dissapears. The girl hides but realizes ( it's the boy next door. ) When she looks for the spirit it's gone, but it's left behind the giant map of a much bigger universe. ( The boy asks what she's doing and she excitedly shows him the glowing map of stars the spirit left behind, and, in awe, they both look into the big observatory telescope and into the night sky.)

Ever since that day....

The girl grows up to learn more about astronomy, and opens up the old abandoned Observatory as a functioning facility. The townspeople continue to insist that the woods are haunted, but ever since that day, years ago, new rumors appear about sightings of a blue glow moving around in the forest.)
