Night

A myth submitted to the site by Flo

Uffington, Lincolnshire, England

Night
  • Night

Once upon a time a wizard lived over the earth and had a lamp called the sun.

Every day he would turn the lamp on and every night would close his curtains, so we could see no more of the sun.

One night, several moths flew up to the curtains and were talking to each other.

"Let's eat, I'm hungry!," said one of the moths.

So they all chewed little moth holes in the curtains. And that's why at night we have our stars.

I really like this story it is very short and very imaginative but i think it would be better if you make it a bit more scary so it could match the title
"NIGHT"."carry on the clever work".
