The other night Helios and I stood outside with a blanket around us, we held each other and gazed at the sky. It was cold. The cloud cover wasn’t too heavy and I could make out some constellations. I figured we had a good chance in seeing the meteor shower. I wasn’t wrong. It was beautiful. In the movies you’d expect to hear a romantic tune but there was no music. It was more profound. It made me feel small.
It hurt my neck. We didn’t stay out too long. Just long enough for us both to glimpse a shooting star.
I forgot to make a wish but then, I already have everything that I want. What could I possibly wish for? OK winning the lottery would be nice, but that’s not essential for life. It would make me more comfortable but not essential.
