A/N: This an origin myth I did for school. So that's why it's like this.
The Night is Made
by: Angie Zabala
It was always hot on Earth because the sun shines twenty-four seven. God knew that it was enough because the scientists down on Earth predicted that if shine continues to shine with out a break, it will burn out, leaving the plants on Earth without sunlight, making them die, the animals that eat plants will die because they have no food, the animals that eat other animals will die, and thus, humans will die because lack of food. With that, God thought about a plan to let the sun have a break, but it will return so that the chain of events won't happen.
God sighed and sat down on his throne, located high in the sky on a big fluffy cumulus cloud. It also gave a wonderful view of God's two biggest creations: (other than humans and life) The bight, wire-hot Sun and the Human inhabited, oxygen filled Earth.
"I need a plan," God told himself, "I want to give the sun a break but I don't want the life on Earth to die." He stood up from his throne and gazed down on his creations. God closed his eyes, focusing to think of a pitch prefect plan. While God was pondering, he heard one of Earth's scientists, talking clearly about the sun.
"Did you know," She said, "That the Sun is really not a planet but really a giant star?"
God smiled to himself. "The Sun is really a giant star," he mumbled to himself. God opened his eyes with wonder and idea. "The sun is really a giant star," he repeated slowly, his eyes widening. He ran down to the sun, staring at it. A thought rammed itself into God's mind. "If-if the Sun is a giant star then, what if I take a little bit off it to brighten up the sky when the sun is taking it's break?"
God took a piece of sun and broke it into a bunch smaller pieces. Even though the bits were broken from the sun, it stilled shine just as bight. And it was also just as hot. God threw the bits of the sun out in front of Earth before the pieces scolded his hands. "Hmm," God murmured, "This won't be enough to keep this sky just as luminous as the Sun would."
God scanned the the space around him. After a few moments of that, he had found a snow-white asteroid. Not as big as Earth or the Sun but it was bigger than most asteroids. God picked it up and placed it between the Earth and the Sun, it gleamed like a shiny crystal.
God laughed at his accomplishment, feeling so very proud. He turned off the Sun, just for a moment. But the whole sky lit up, it was so amazing. The bits of Sun were sparkling points light in the dark sky. You could connect them together, making beautiful images. (They did do just that, but that's another story.) As well as the sugar-white planetoid. It glistened in the sky.
God smiled when he heard the oohs and aahs from everyone on Earth. "What shall we call these twinkling objects in the sky?" A person asked, pointing to the bits of Sun and white asteroid. "We shall call the amazing points of lights," A scientist said, "Stars. Because the bits of of light shine just like the Sun. And the Sun is considered a giant star."
"Yes," another scientist agreed. "We shall call the big, brilliant ball of silvery white, the moon." The crowd cheered. "But," the same scientist said suddenly, "The Sun is so worn out from being on all the time, it can't be on for too long anymore. If the moon and the stars hadn't came out right now. The sun would have blown out."
God nodded. He decided that there will be a time of day that will give the Sun a break so it wouldn't blow out and the moon and stars will come back out and illuminate the somber sky.
