On one starry night, A girl with wavy golden hair was looking up into the sky, longing for something.

“Please rest, Lacey. At this rate, your health will be broken down again” said Aunty May.

After giving her medicine, Aunt May took her leave.

“Wait, Aunty”.


“Do you really think people become stars after they died and shine brightly for the world?”

“It’s what stories say.. but yes, I believe in it” Aunty replied.

“Is that so?” Aunt May sadly nodded and took her leave.

Later, Lacey heard someone was calling for her. It was her childhood friend, Patrick. Patrick is a handsome young man with emerald like eyes. Although, Lacey had to quit school early because of illness, Patrick would still visit to Lacey.

Seeing Patrick, Lacey face became to mix with joy and sadness. Patrick then made a hand sign to Lacey telling her to come down. Lacey went down the stairs gently, preventing from waking Aunty.

“I have missed you so much” rushing into Patrick’s arms.

“ I missed you lots too, do friends normally miss each other this much?”

Lacey smiled and replied “ Who knows?”

Under the moonlight, the two lay upon the green grass, looking up into the starry sky.

"Hey, Lace... sorry for not being beside you during your heart transplant”. Lacey smiled with sad ridden face.

“Don't mind it, Patrick, you did lots for me.. even though I turned you down when you proposed me in the past. But now I...”

“Is okay Lace. I am still happy staying by your side like this” Lacey was about to cry.

“Hey Lace, will you keep that promise of you will live a very long life?” said Patrick. With tears falling, Lacey hugged Patrick.

“I will Pat, I will live for a very long time! So please stay beside me forever, Pat..”

“If only, I were… No Lace, I can't do that.. I will have to leave this place for a while it may a year or may be centuries so..”

“It's okay, I will wait, Pat...”

“Lace, can we sing a song that we used to sing when we were young?”

Lacey nodded , they sang a song under the moonlit night. Finally the song came to end.

“Lacey, please close your eyes” Lacey agreed. She felt Patrick's hands were cupping her face, followed by warmth on her lips. It was a kiss.

“Goodbye! Lacey, don't open your eyes for 30 seconds”.

Lacey nodded. She felt a mild breeze, " Smile brightly" she heard a whisper.

Lacey opened her eyes.

Patrick was gone...

“Lacey, what are you doing here all alone?” It was Aunt May. Lacey stood up.

“Don't worry Aunty ... I will live for a long time to value this heart of special someone..”


Lacey looked up into the sky, this time with a smiling face.

By running into the truck, Patrick committed suicide, to give his heart to love...

“Aunty, stars do shine brightly, don't they?”
