The Milky Way Located in outer space was a galaxy, and in this galaxy was a solar system. This solar system consisted of the Sun, the Moon, nine planets, and stars. This solar system came into existence by way of a galaxyquake. A couple hundred years ago, during the galaxyquake, balls of hydrogen and helium and traces of others elements came together to form the Sun. The Sun was a beastly creation, feared by everything in the galaxy. The Sun’s appearance was fiery; his hair, his arms, and his legs all appeared to be flames. His most potent feature though, was his eyes. If left uncovered, his eyes would destroy whatever they looked at. As long as whatever the Sun looked at did not have anything protecting its eyes, the other thing would be destroyed instantaneously. To protect the environment of the galaxy against any unnecessary destruction, the Sun wore sunglasses. In the same galaxyquake that produced the Sun, balls of oxygen, silicon, magnesium, calcium, aluminum and magnesium came together to form the Moon. The Moon was quite the opposite of the Sun. The Moon had a cool feel to her, the look of a Greek goddess. She was a beautiful creation with a well composed figure. Her most dynamic feature was her curves which she could use to seduce anything she wanted. To keep her look fresh and everything from drooling over her, she wore a robe. Though both the Sun and the Moon thought they were the only thing alive, the products of the galaxyquake would one day meet each other and eventually fill the galaxy with more creation. One day, while doing some yoga, the Moon caught the Sun’s attention. While going on a jog, the Sun noticed something unusual out of the corner of his eyes in what seemed to be another living creation. It was the Moon and the sight of her gracious body mesmerized him. “Hello there,” said the Sun. “Hi,” replied the Moon. “Um, what are you?” asked the Sun. “I am a natural satellite,” said the Moon, “a celestial body that orbits around planets. What are you?” “I am a star, King of the Solar System,” replied the Sun, “I am located at the center of the Solar System and all matter in the Solar System orbit me.” “Wow, that is quite impressive…,” said the Moon. And with that, she took off her robe and a glow immediately came about from her. “You are amazingly beautiful,” interrupted the Sun, “I have never seen something as alluring as you.” “Oh, thank you. That is quite flattering,” said the Moon. “I know I just met you but you are so mesmerizing, I think I want you to be my Queen. Will you marry me?” asked the Sun. “I just met him,” the moon thought to herself, “but he is King of the Solar System and I would be Queen.” Unable to resist the temptation of becoming Queen, the Moon shouted, “Yes!” Within a week, the Sun and the Moon got married. Immediately, on their honeymoon, they began to fill up the solar system with their offspring—planets. The Sun and the Moon had nine kids. They were: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Mercury was the oldest of the nine kids, Jupiter was the largest of the nine kids, and Pluto was both the youngest and the smallest of the nine kids. Earth was where humans lived, the only planet where any form of life was found; Mercury was where the trade and commerce of the humans took place, as well as where the humans kept their money; Venus was where the humans went to go on honeymoons and make love; Jupiter was where the gods of the humans met up and decided how to reward the good and punish the bad; Saturn was where the humans got all their agriculture; Neptune was where the humans get their water; and Pluto was where all the bad humans were sent. The Sun provided energy, heat and light for the Earth and the Moon provided light at night for the Earth. This was one perfect family. Twenty years after the Sun and the Moon’s marriage, the family was still going strong. The solar system was a thing of beauty in the galaxy. The solar system was so beautiful that it was coveted by a king. This king was the king of the unknown matter in the galaxy. The king, Big Bang, was the leader of this unknown matter named dark matter. Big Bang had been bitterly watching this solar system live a fulfilling life while he and his matter just suffered in the darkness of the galaxy. Big Bang had waited patiently for his chance to disturb this happiness and finally got his chance. For their twentieth anniversary, the Sun and the Moon decided to take a vacation out into the wilderness of the universe. The clusters of stars around the planets had been given energy by the Sun and the Moon to give the planets enough heat and light for two weeks. So with that, the Sun and the Moon went on their two week honeymoon. Big Bang saw this as the perfect opportunity to disrupt this happiness in the solar system. He, along with the dark matter, would kidnap as many planets as they could. “Alright men,” said Big Bang, “the Sun and the Moon have gone. Now is the time for us to kidnap as many planets as we can. I am sick of the solar system being so happy while we suffer in the darkness of the universe.” And with that, a huge roar from all the dark matter was let out. Big Bang and the dark matter were ready. Big Bang and the dark matter targeted Pluto first. Pluto was the smallest planet as well the closest planet, making it the easiest planet to kidnap. This would be a good momentum builder for Big Bang and the dark matter, something for them to build off of. Big Bang and the dark matter successfully kidnapped Pluto according to plan. They were ready to go back for Neptune, except this time they were not ready for what the stars of the solar system had in store for them. The stars of the solar system had seen Pluto get kidnapped but they did not realize this in time to save Pluto. This time they were prepared. They split into eight groups, each protecting one of the remaining planets. When Big Bang and the dark matter returned, the stars were ready to attack them. “Alright soldiers, we have successfully kidnapped Pluto. Slowly but surely, we will ruin the happiness of the solar system. There are only eight planets left. Let us take the planets, one by one, until there are no more and happiness is no more in the solar system.” Big Bang had delivered a motivating speech and all of the dark matter was ready to take the rest of the solar system. Big Bang and the dark matter began their trip back to the solar system, except this time, they were greeted by shooting stars. The group of stars watching over Neptune fired photons of plasma at the intruders of the solar system. Big Bang and the dark matter were unable to make away with Neptune as the stars destroyed much of the dark matter. Big Bang and the rest of the surviving dark matter would have to return back to their home and made do with kidnapping Pluto. Two weeks later, the Sun and the Moon returned. Shooter, the leader of the stars told the Sun and the Moon the bad news. “Pluto has been kidnapped.” “What?!” yelled both the Sun and the Moon. “An evil king of the unknown universe has kidnapped Pluto,” said Shooter. “The evil king is Big Bang and his followers are the dark matter. The other stars and I were unprepared for attack as we did not expect such a horrible act in such joyous times. However, we were able to defend Neptune from another kidnap attempt by Big Bang and the dark matter. We were able to destroy enough dark matter that Big Bang and the rest of the dark matter had to return home having kidnapped only Pluto.” “That is good. Just tell me how I can save Pluto,” said the Sun. “There are traces of the dark matter still remaining. Just follow their trails and that should lead you to Big Bang and the dark matter,” said Shooter. The Sun and the Moon quickly dashed off to the trails of the dark matter and followed the trails all the way to the location of Big Bang and the dark matter. Big Bang saw the Sun and the Moon and immediately knew they were coming for Pluto. “I am so sick and tired of you and your family being so happy,” said Big Bang. “Well maybe this will make you happy,” said the Moon. With this, the Moon took off her robe and mooned Big Bang. Big Bang could not take his eyes of the moon. While this was happening, the Sun snuck up behind the Moon. “One, two three!” yelled the Sun. The Moon flew up and the Sun took off his sunglasses. The Sun’s eyes immediately destroyed Big Bang. The dark matter immediately surrendered and gave back Pluto. But just for good measures, the Sun decided to destroy the rest of the dark matter. The Sun and the Moon returned with Pluto and all the solar system rejoiced. After this, all matter in the universe knew not to challenge the Sun and the Moon and the entire solar system.
