Lonely Moon

Long ago the Moon Goddess gazed upon the earth and saw all the happy people and longed to be with them. She thought to herself why are we so far apart so she cast a rope out around the earth and began to pull the earth towards her. She pulled so hard the earth shifted off its axis, the dinosaurs were catapulted off the earth into space hitting the planets making craters and exploding in space. The explosions still shine today in the night sky as stars. Since the earth was no longer on it's axis the water began to splash and shift from then on. The moon goddess felt guilty for what she'd done and only come out at night to watch the people and help those in the dark.
