At dawn, when the sun was doing its regular lazy routine of raising slowly above us, the first ray of sunshine was born. Being the first ray of sunshine is not easy let me tell you, because like any other thing that is first of a kind, it has no one to follow, no examples and no one to guide it. But our first ray of sunshine knew exactly what she was doing; she was flying in the speed of light towards earth. With no hesitation she broken through Ben’s window and hit him right in the eyes. Ben had to go through this every morning. Every morning a new ray of sunshine would wake him up and every morning he would get up, pull down the window blinds and try to fall asleep again. But not today, because today Ben had enough, this time he wasn’t going to let the sun get away with it. If you wonder why Ben is so mad, you should know that yesterday his girlfriend dumped him, and not in a nice way like most of his ex-girlfriends. She did it over the phone. She told him that he is a sad pathetic slob and a poor excuse of a boyfriend and hung up before he had a chance to answer. All of that happened because few days ago they went to see a movie together and Ben fell asleep in the middle, and slept through the entire thing. He did it often when they were going out, because the ray of sunshine would wake him up too early every morning. You can see now why poor Ben is so mad at the sun. In his mind it was clear as day, that the only one to blame for all of this is no other than the sun itself.
He got up, kicked the ray of sunshine right in her pretty little face, and set down next to his computer, just like that, without getting out of his pajamas or at least brushing his teeth. He just turned on his computer and went right to the best site in knew to get the job done – a site for starting petitions. He made one of his own, a petition against the sun. Ben was good at making fuss on the internet, and it took him only few days to make the government acknowledge his petition. He already had five-trillion-billion signs and the sun’s fate was sealed. Ben was so angry that he didn’t even remember why he did it in the first place, but when the president invited him to come watch as astronauts cover the sun with a huge piece of cloth, he was delighted.
In the evening, when everyone left and the sun was entirely covered, Ben walked home. He realized that he forgot entirely about his girlfriend in midst of all the chaos around the sun’s fate. Only now, when he was finally alone, he really started to miss her, but there was nothing he could do, not now, not ever, because she hated him, just like he hated the sun. But it’s okay now guys, you don’t have to feel sad, because Ben doesn’t. It’s been years since the break up and Ben is a different person now. He has a new girlfriend and he is even happier than before, maybe it’s just him reassuring himself, but if he really feels happier then it must be so.
At dawn, when the sun was doing its regular lazy routine of raising slowly above us, the first ray of sunshine was born. But she couldn’t move at all, she was trapped under the huge piece of cloth left there by Ben’s accomplices. Because of that, the ray of sunshine could not wake Ben up, and he slept peacefully for the entire morning. At noon his girlfriend called him, he overslept, he had to pick her up from the airport be he didn’t. It wasn’t the first time, Ben always forget about her, and she had enough. She dumped him over the phone and hung up before Ben had a chance to say anything. He got up, opened the window and looked up at the sky. Floating high above him was the covered sun. He stared at it for few moments, stupefied, and he knew, knew that there is no one left to hate now, no one but himself.
