There are stars out, but that doesn’t mean anyone notices. However, the comet was special. People pointed it out proving how smart they were being able to see what others told them about.
Charles didn’t care. He looked at Anne’s eyes.
Sure, they were told about the comet, the rare comet that comes once in a million years. “You better look while you have the chance!” “You may never see something like that again!” “Don’t miss it!”
They looked, but they were not sure they saw anything particularly remarkable out there. They were more interested in each other’s eyes.

Stars in their eyes!!
Yes! Now that you mention it, those are the most beautiful stars. Thank you, Liz!
Happy to hear you have stars right here, on Earth!
A new writing blog, Frank. How nice. I have followed. I enjoyed your comet post.
Thank you, Robbie! I am a member of Prairie Writers Guild. It is a group of writers from an area where I grew up in northwest Indiana which is not far from Chicago. I plan to post here as well as my regular blog. Others from the group will likely post here also.
Awww, how romantic!
Not even comets can take us away from our beloved’s gaze. I like where you took the prompt, Frank, from the skies to eyes.
Thank you, Charli! I am glad you liked this.
