Since she was a young child she had stared at them late at night, when everyone else was asleep, tucked up warmly in their beds, she stared. She would open her bedroom window and stare out at the dark night sky. Sometimes she could see many and sometimes, not so much. She hated the cloudy nights. They were one of the most beautiful things in the world. And yet, they were beyond this world. They were out there, in space. Beyond the earth. Beyond us. They shone brightly sometimes and more dimly on other occasions. Even on cold winter nights, she would wrap herself up in her duvet, open her bedroom window and stare up into the night sky. On nights like that she could see her breath and feel the cold air as she took each breath in.
She loved the stars. She loved the quietness.
Stars always instilled a sense of calm within her. And then she moved to the city. Her new bedroom window no longer showed her the night sky. The light pollution hide them and the noise of the traffic was deafening sometimes. She missed them…but absence makes the heart grow fonder and when she saw them again…it was truly magical…
Phantomisa, I hope you don't mind me using one of your beautiful illustrations to go with my tiny story, mixedtapes pointed me in your direction, and I thought your illustration worked very well with my tiny story :) x
Thanks so much to thelostgirlofneverland for creating a beautiful illustration to go with my tiny story :)

My lack of drawing skills make me sad, I cannot bring my words to life...but hope that one of you out there can!
I'm not a hundred percent sure this is a tiny story, it might be more words of wisdom than anything...it's a verse from a larger poem I wrote a few months ago. I thought it work by its self as a single piece as well.
Cacheth, I hope you don't mind but I borrowed one of your images...I can't draw and I've been looking for an image to go with this for ages...and I thought yours worked well...she looks like she's off on a true adventure! :)
