(Author’s note: Working hard on adjusting my schedule and getting rid of distractions in order to do better work. Also working on plans to put some of these stories on video, like Youtube or Vimeo. We’ll see what happens. Here’s today’s fictioneers, with a bit of The Church involved.)
Under The Milky Way Tonight
by Miles H. Rost
“All these stars, all this world,” Marina sighed in wonder.
“Takes a lot of work to hang all these up in a picture.”
She looked at Jeramiha, her astronomy partner, and smiled.
“Can you believe that we’re able to gaze up there and see all these different messy stars from ancient times?”
“I can, Marina. Though I prefer to look at the stars through the lens of a photographer. Capturing a perfect moment takes a lot of ingredients.”
“Starlight, alone time, crowd distance, and a nice camping setup?”
Jeramiha looked into Marina’s eyes, and smiled.
“Under the milky way tonight.”
Is there something in the air other than the stars? Nice story with some likeable characters
I would assume so. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!
My pleasure 🙂
‘Twould seem that they’re about to become more than astronomy partners. Nicely done.
It would! It would!
Beautiful story with a hint of unfolding romance.
Yep! Thanks for stopping by!
I think their hormones have been affected by all those stars 🙂
Well, staring up into beauty does that to people. 🙂
Wouldn’t let me click like, but like I do. Love this!
Thanks! And thank you for stopping by!
Sweet and romantic, and science and art are in this, too. I love it.
Science and Art are closely intertwined. It’s a shame that some folk in both communities cannot seem to reconcile them. And add love to the equation, and it all goes into the soup. Thanks for stopping by!
Ah the Milky Way, so beautiful, I hope that they create magic.
It’ll transport them to an Andromedan plane. Thanks!
And so begins a spark…
That burns like a thousands suns.
Jeramiha finally got the hint!
I think the hint was for Marina’s direction…
Jeremiha must be very attracted by Marina to allow himself to be distracted from his photography. Most people who interrupted him would have received short shrift I feel sure!
Oh, he is. He’s a photographer, but he knows a lot more of it.
This reminds me of a number of trips off the beaten track and looking up at the stars mesmoried by that magical night sky. I have some campers out looking at the stars in my flash, who got more than they bargained for.
They did! Thanks for stopping by!
What interstellar chat up lines! Great take, Miles.
Some of them came from the song!
and soon they they will see stars in each other’s eyes. nice ‘starry’ story unfolding.
They already see them. And sometimes, if they wouldn’t get the hint, they might see stars AROUND their eyes. @_@ Thanks for stopping by!
Ooo I’ve always liked that song! Great story, sounds like they are going to have a great night
It was one of the first songs I played when I landed in Australia in 2015. Hated to leave 6 months after arriving, though.
Sweet story, starry eyed people.
Hah! Thanks for stopping by!
