1: By: Araceli Colmenero
2: On one beautiful sunny morning there laid a baby girl. She was floating in a basket on a clear lake. The sun looked down at her and saw she was abandoned.
3: Suddenly the sun came down to earth as a woman and picked up the baby girl. She said “I am Sunny I shall be your mom.”
4: Sunny took the baby to her new home. Sunny asked herself “What shall I name this beautiful baby girl?” Sunny decided on calling her Sol.
5: Sunny and Sol went on living their lives as normal people would, but Sunny could see the sun was dying out. She knew even though she left the moon in charge it couldn’t do two jobs.
6: So Sunny sat Sol down one day and told her the truth. Sol was shocked and surprised.
7: Sunny said “Sol, I have to leave you so everybody can have light to live.” Sol was very gracious and said “Even though you are the most important thing to me we have to do what is best for everybody else.”
8: Sol and Sunny said goodbye for the last time. “Thank you for raising me Mom” Sol said.
9: “Whenever you want to see me, my cupcake, smile up to the sun; I will always smile back,” Sunny said.
10: Sunny transformed into the Sun that day.
11: Everyday Sunny and Sol smile to each other knowing that the other is still in their heart.
