|Sara, Jane and Marie walked out on a cool afternoon. It was the first day of June, and tonight would be a very special event that was a time of celebration for the land of Fullerton: the Night of the Sparkles. The Night of the Sparkles always came on the first day of June, which was the first day of summer in the land of Fullerton. However, the summer wouldn't come until after sunset. "Each year on the first day of June, right after the sun goes down, the moon will blow shiny and sparkly glitter into the land," Sara explained. "The sparkles will bring eternal good luck to anybody and everybody who sees it. But I want both of you to remember, the event won't start until after sunset." Sara, Jane and Marie waited all day for the sun to come down, and all grew more excited with each passing hour. They danced around on the lawn and nibbled sweet red apples from the apple tree to help pass the time.
Soon, the sun went down and the sky turned dark. Sara, Jane and Marie all stopped what they were doing and looked up. They saw Mr. Moon rise into the sky, having just woken up from his daytime nap. Puffing his round cheeks, he blew shiny moon dust into the land. The two cats and the dog were delighted to see this. They had never seen anything like it. The moon dust was bringing good luck to their lives. However, Marie accidentally got some of the colorful glitter up her nose and she sneezed from it twice. Her sneezes were very soft, adorable and barely had any buildup. At the end of her sneezes, she put a paw under her nose, rubbed her nose adorably and said politely, "Oops, excuse me." Sara and Jane looked at each other for a few seconds, and then laughed happily and they, along with Marie, enjoyed the night. The Night of the Sparkles was a lot of fun.
Later, at the end of the event, Sara, Jane and Marie were all tired from having so much fun, and went to bed right away. They were looking forward to celebrating the Night of the Sparkles again next year. Though they already had had a lot of fun, they couldn't help but wish that the Night of the Sparkles would last just a few more days.
