Day the World Turned Black
Everyday the sun would rise and the moon would set and everybody would wake up to a new morning. Today was a special day in October, for the sun did not rise and the moon did not set and everyone woke to a full moon. During the night the sun had mysteriously vanished and this inscrutable incident enervated the most brilliant of minds . This caused aberrant behavior throughout the globe. Nevertheless there were a few vivacious individuals brave enough to find out what happened.
They start their adventure by taking off in a space shuttle destined for outer space. As they reach orbit they witness the most amazing thing that any of them have ever seen. They watched the sun being sucked into nothing and something pushing it in. They change their course and follow the sun. As they get there, they realize that they are also being pulled in along with the sun and that their decision is at this point irrevocable. The funny thing was that the sun emanated no heat and that the moon started to glow much brighter than normal. It turns out that the moon was now supplying the earth with the heat that was needed to keep most happy. The sun, and both ships are now closed up in the thing and are increasing their velocity as they head for some minuscule object way in the distance.
The team of explorers decide to catch the other ship but it is on the opposite side of the sun. It takes them a few days but they finally reach the other ship. The only thing that they cannot figure out is how to make contact with the other ship. They have exhausted every possibility and the only thing they have done is wasted time. They are floating in nothing, the scenery looks black and the only thing that they can see are the sun, the other ship, and the thing that they are flying towards. The ship surroundings are so amazing that they would whet your imagination beyond belief. Nevertheless, they are anxious to reach it in order to find out what it is. After doing nothing for two days they finally receive some contact with the other ship via Morse code. Using this to talk, they establish audio communication. Talking for a few hours they realize that both sides have no idea where they are headed. The only instructions that the other ship had received, were to push the sun into the hole and wait till they reach the end of the tunnel. They know that it will take them three weeks to reach their destination. Both ships have joined and all of the crew members have become friends. They party every night and have a ball, for they have nothing else to do but enjoy themselves. The ships are full of interesting anecdotes and emaciated people, for partying nonstop takes a lot out of someone.
They finally reach the object and find that it is an island and that they have to deliver the sun to the center of the island. There is a controversy between the two ships and both sides debate whether to continue onward or to turn around and try to find a way back. The crew sent from earth convinced everyone to continue so that they could find out what was going on. They tie the sun up to a machine very tight and they begin the long haul. Levity has spread throughout all of the people and everyone begins to make jokes about their mishap. Days roll by and they havenít made as much progress as they expected. Their supplies are running low so they have a shortage of food and water. During the next few days the morale has picked up because they now have their destination in sight. Everyone begins to hum euphonious melodies and the people who had contempt for the rest now realize how pathetic they were and changed their attitudes. Time seemed to fly by very quickly now and before they realize it they are within a few miles of the huge complex that they have been hoping to reach for weeks now. The once
