I woke up in a car alone after mama and papa left me in the street all those years ago. My home was the street and everyone around me was family.I felt different from everyone around me. They were all normal. They had no powers, no weird birthmark and most did not long for a family that they belonged in. I looked at the window only to see darkness. Was it night?

 

 “You awake?” said the Driver. “Where am I going?” I asked quietly. “Lunar main” Said the driver. Lunar main? Where is that? “Don’t worry little moon we will be there soon” Said the driver. The road began to become bumpy. The car stopped. I went to look at the driver but he was gone and the window had broken. I had no place to go and nothing was in view. Shouting was coming from a distance.

 

 I followed the noise to only find a little girl about my age in a cage. “Who is there?” said the girl.” Just me ``I said.”Why did you come?” she asked. “ This man driving this moving horse with no legs is gone and I had come to find him but instead I found you.” I said. “You must go before the witch comes back. She will hurt you as well” she said. “ I will not leave without you. You look like me but different, ``I said. “ I'm Solar Starlight,” She said. “I am Moon. That's what people call me. I'm not sure what my name truly is.” I said. I unlocked the cage to let solar out.” We must go before the witch comes” Solar said.

 

 We walked for hours not knowing where we were going. The place we found was empty and had a man on the ground. The man looked hopeless and upset. As if someone had given him a glimpse of happiness but quickly took it away. He had a moon on his shoulder. I compared it to the moon on my ankle. “He has a moon on his shoulder,” I said. “ Yes, the Starlights all have it. And who the princess chooses has it as well.” She said, “Do you get it as a child?” I asked. “Only The Starlight family is born with it. The rest are stamps that are put on everyday and washed at night.” She said, I tried to wipe mine off when the sun wasn't looking. “It doesn't come off,” I said. “What does not come off?” she asked “oh nothing. Do you have one?” I asked. “Yes, my twin sister had one too but she’s gone” she said sadly. “She’s gone? What do you mean.” i asked “she is missing-” she was cut off by the sound of a branch breaking. 

 

“Come let's go” solar said as she grabbed my arm and dragged me behind her as we ran through the forest until we felt it was safe to stop. “Solar? Is it safe to rest for a bit?” I asked quietly. “I think so.” she said in between breaths. “I need to show you something,” I said. “What is it?” she asked. I showed her the moon on my ankle. She showed me the sun on her ankle. “My Mother always told me that we would find one another again” , Solar said. “So am I your sister?” I asked hopefully. “Even better! You're my twin sister. Since I saw you I knew I didn't feel like I was missing anything anymore. I'm glad to have you back.” solar said. “ Me too,” I said.

 

 “Luna,” she said. “What? Who is Luna?” I asked. “Your name. You said before that you didn't know your name. Well it's luna.” she said. “Luna.” I repeated. As soon as our happiness arrived it disappeared. “Don't you have to go home?” I asked. “First we must find home. Come this way” solar said as she started to walk. “Hello there little ones. Are you lost?” said the lady. “ No, we have just come to find fresh berries,” Solar said, shaking a little bit. “ Solar, we must go now.” I said , pushing her forward. But the lady had grabbed us both and dragged us into her home. She threw me into a cage and solar into another. “Why have you taken us?” solar and I asked. “She had escaped me” the lady said as she pointed at solar. “ Please let us go. We just want to go home.” I said. “We’ll be taking them,” said a bunch of people in armor. The men escorted us to a huge palace like home.

 

 “Mother. I'm back” said solar. “Solar, who is this?” Said the queen. “Mother this is Luna. She is my sister luna.” Solar said. “Solar, you can not bring in another child saying she is luna. I'm sorry darling, what is your actual name” said the queen. “ everyone around me used to call me little moon. But it's not my true name. My parents left us a long time ago, ``I said. “Oh i'm sorry to hear that little moon.” the queen said. “Show her the moon.I do it with you if you want me too” solar said. “Please do it with me solar, '' I said. Solar and I both showed out birthmarks on our ankles. “Luna. My Luna. My sweet daughter. I've missed you so much and have longed for this moment.” the queen said. “I feel like I've actually found my place somewhere. Thank you solar.'' I said. “I’ll go get father to show him that Luna has come home” Solar said as she ran to get her father. “Luna? Are you my darling? My little girl is back. We must celebrate.” said the king. “ no celebration is needed. Finding my true family. Not being on the streets anymore is my true dream. I've finally found peace in myself.” “Alright then” said the king. “Group hug!” Yelled Solar. Solar and Luna grew up to be the happiest children in their kingdom.
