The Shooting Star

It was a beautiful starry night in the town of Barrepom, Kansas when Chloe and Ethan were playing outside. Mother called them in for dinner but they wanted to stay outside for just a bit longer. Chloe, an excellent student in school and a very sweet little girl and her brother Ethan, who struggles in school and can be pretty mean at times, both loved to play outside especially in the warmer months. The children had now been outside for over an hour and Mother was pretty upset as their food was getting cold. They were now laying on the luscious green grass just watching the stars, being fascinated by the shapes and constellations. As they were watching the stars they see what they think is a shooting star but not sure, a few seconds later they hear a big boom coming from a few streets over. They sneak through the house hoping that mother wouldn't notice them but surely she does.
