There once was a starfish alone on a beach that didn't get visitors often, but when it did the visitors weren't interested in her. They only wanted to play with sand or listen to the shells. She gazed upon the sky every night wishing she was a shining beautiful star that everyone admired, instead of a lonely starfish no one cares about. Except for one little kid that had an interest in all sea creatures. But one wasn't enough compared to the number of people interested in sand. And the fact that the kid was interested in all sea creatures made her feel she wasn't special. One day as she was gazing upon the stars she saw a shooting star and made a wish. She wished she could join the stars in the sky. Even though she didn't think it would come true, she desperately clinged on to any hope she could find. But something extraordinary happened that day. The little starfish couldn't believe her eyes when the shooting star fell near her. The shooting star said to her: "I am a star of the sky but my time came to an end. When we stars up there die we come down here so one of you may replace us, and I choose you for this. Do you accept?" The starfish couldn't believe it. She thought it for sure is a dream and that she is asleep. Nevertheless she didn't hesitate to take a place among the stars. She was as happy as she never was before. For the first time ever everyone is gazing upon her for once. She wasn't gazing into the stars out of envy anymore, she was the one being gazed upon. But her happiness didn't last as she started to feel envious of the other stars getting attention. Even though she wasn't ignored by most people anymore, she wanted all attention to herself. She started killing the stars one by one. As they never had fought before since there was never a need to, they were weak and defenceless. Soon she became the only star in the sky. She was finally satisfied with her place. Everyone looking into the sky to see her and only her, no one else. She got the attention she always wanted. But as the morning came and the sun rose. The star was overshined by the sun. Now noone could see her. They could only see the sun. She got angry and tried to to attack the sun but she was tired and blinded by the sunshine. She tripped and fell to the ground once again but this time she fell to a beach in a desserted island where no one will see her. She was offered all the attention in the world but lost it to her envy.

A starfish with a wish
