The sky was dotted by seagulls in a portrait of abstract pinks and violets that seemed to go on forever, the moon was visible and bright. Fishermen basked in the river motionless until they got a catch. People walked happily about, greeting each other and most of which were going home to their families. Little boys where in their tree house, plotting their next theft on the robbery for cinnamon rolls, while the girls played with their dolls in the park. Onett had never seemed so happy in all it's years of being a town.
Ness sat on a cliff watching the sun go down again, he did everyday. "To think this could have all been destroyed..."
He could see his house from here, the sun gleamed perfectly on it. Then he remembered that the landlord had threatened to tear down the house if they did not move into town, but Ness's dad had allways worked something out. There where too many memories in that house, he started to remember when his family first got their dog King and when he got his first +A in school and his mom put it on the fridge. Then he could start to remember, that fateful day when that meteorite fell from the sky... He remembered it was getting late, and started to walk south.
Most families where already asleep, he could hear a few children praying before they went to bed. He entered the Baker's shop to get some flowers, the baker also grew a garden in the back of his shop, and sold flowers to Ness regularly.
"Tis' Ness! Moi favoritea boy, what are you doing arounda' so late?!"
"Came to get some last minute flowers from your garden, what do you have to chose Francis?"
"Ah, so you come' to get de flowers for your ladya' friend, huh? Well my boy, I have somea beautiful Begonias here for you."
Francis showed him the flowers, they were as beautiful as he described. "How did you grow those here?"
"I'ma a baker, but dis' does not'a mean I cana' be a superb gardener!"
Francis was full of surprises, Ness looked at his wallet "How much are they?"
"No, no my boy, you cana' have dem' fora' free, after all you are a good friend." Francis put the flowers in a Bouquet.
"Thanks Francis, you the best." He grabed the bouquet and left the bakery and headed south to the path.
The night was quiet, he could hear crickets all over the palace singing their song in harmony. Ness passed the arrow mouse family's house and was on his way to Twoson, when suddenly he could hear crying. He felt a breeze coming to his right and started to walk toward the crying source. He crept behind a tree to see what was happening, two grown men were surrounding a little girl who seemed lost.
"Do you think she will make us a good buck when we put her for ransom?"
"You dimwit, shes a little girl and her family will pay anything for her"
"Mommy! Help me!" cried the child.
"Your mommy can't help you now..."
Ness was outraged and walked toward the men. "Stop this, or else you'll get hurt"
"Wooah, it's a little shrimp telling us what to do? We'll show you not to interfere with our plans!"
The men pulled out metal rod and started to slowly walk toward Ness. "You're going to be hurt bady boy!"
"Oh really? You fatties?" Ness taunted them.
The smaller one snorted. "Did you hear that? He called us fat!!!!"
"KILL HIM!" Both men where rushing toward Ness.
He disappeared, both men stopped and where dumbfounded. The smaller one took a step back. "What...happened???"
"WHERE DID HE GO?!" They felt something, and quickly turned back. "Oh...no..."
Both men fell to the grown frozen solid under a a thick layer of ice. Ness walked toward them "Maybe I shouldn't have done that..."
"Thank you Ness"
Ness turned, to see the familiar face, it was Paula's little sister . "Are you OK Macy?"
"Yes, I was playing with my dollies when these two scary people came" She started to sob.
"Well coincidence I was going to to your house, lets take you home with your family"
"Big sister Paula said you were a very nice person, now I know it's true"
Ness tickled her, and he walked her to the Polestar preschool.
He knocked on the door, he could hear Paula's dad making phone calls to customers, he started a high school not too long ago and was looking for students and teachers.
He instantly knew it was Paula's mother, because of the sound of her voice which was recognizable by anyone who lived around her. "Oh Macy! I was so worried! I thought something terrible happened to you!"
"I'm OK mommy, Ness saved me from the scary people."
"Thank you Ness, I could not live without my sweet little girl" She kissed Macy on the cheek and Macy ran off to the living room.
"Paula is upstairs if you want to see her"
"Thanks Mrs. Jones"
Paula's dad gave Ness a wave, he was far too busy to chat. Ness made his way upstairs to Paul's bedroom door and knocked.
"Who is it?"
"Your favorite guy in a baseball cap!"
She giggled "Come in"
She was looking out at the stars on her window, she ran and hugged Ness. "I thought you wouldn't come"
Ness looked at her. "I wouldn't miss watching this with you, it only happens every 1000 years."
He handed her the flowers "Look what I got for you"
"Oh Ness they're beautiful!" she walked back and put them in a vase.
They sat on the window "These stars remind me when we were kids, not a worry in our minds. I can't seem to forget the adventures we had together with our friends."
Ness turned "I can't either, I remember when I first met you, I took down that blue cult to save you."
Paula looked down "I was so navie, well we all were!" she chuckled then became quiet.
"There it is!" Ness looked at the night sky, it was the millennial comet that only came every 1,000 years. He looked at her "Make a wish."
Paula closed her eyes "Already did"
Ness held her hand "So, what was your wish?"
Paula smiled "It's a secret silly!"
Ness got close to her and kissed her "I know my wish"
