The stars shone bright in her eyes as she stared at the night sky. They looked so small in the distance as the universe looked so vast. So many people would feel small and uncomfortable in their presence, yet she had never felt so large or comfortable about anything.
She thought about the flight she would take tomorrow, finally making her dreams come true. She would be amongst the stars and the universe. She could remember how many dismissed her dreams and told her that she would not be one of the lucky few.
She had never felt so alive.
