The Story of the Universe
"If we were meant to last, then why didn't we?" I asked with a shaky voice. But I was proud, because I asked it. I asked the question I longed to know for years.
"Because finding the one when you're young is always a recipe for disaster. And darling, it's the universe's favorite dish to serve." He looked at me blankly with his chin propped up on his thumb, his fingers covering his lips.
Andrew is the sun, a hot head with a hidden past. He doesn't know who or what he wants, Jessica or Katie, so he keeps them both trapped in his gravity. His love only truly burns for one of them which he discovers along the way.
Jessica is the earth, stuck in the sun's gravity. They used to be in love, but the sun pushed her away. However, he keeps her at a frustrating arms length away. She also has the moon revolving around her.
Which leads us to Trenton, the moon. He used to be a player, but for the first time ever, he has settled for one girl. He showers her with love, and gives her all the gifts in the world. When you look up at the sky at night, you can see his gifts: the stars.
Then there is Katie who is Mercury. Mercury is the closest planet to the sun, specifically the only one he seems to let in. But things are different between her and the sun this year. She's away at college at Yale, but Andrew's still stuck in a private school in Atlanta with no one to mask his feelings for Jessica behind.
The story of the universe is a tragic thing filled with heart break, loss, and love. It will keep you on your toes, meanwhile pulling on your heart's strings.
Who will Andrew chose, Jessica or Mercury? But then again, who does Jessica chose, Andrew or Trenton?
