“I wish to go on an Adventure…”

STAR CX follows two heavenly bodies that through an unbelievable mistake end up going on a journey across space and lifetimes. A mashup of sci-fi and fantasy adventure, mixed with spicy romance and sweet slice-of-life moments. This saga begins with a cosmic collision and ends in the world of Aura. Picking up 600 years after The King’s Challenge with a multitude of diverse characters, STAR CX is a story unlike any other in this world or the Universe of Chaos.

Verse 1 – A Saga of Starcrossed Souls

Chapter 0 – Prologue

In the sky, we twinkle and dance. Some might even call us angels or celestial bodies on high. It is said that we are traveling at an astronomical rate through the universe, but has anyone ever observed a star move or change its place in the night sky?

Those who look up at us, describe us with words like Velocity, Mass, Gravity, Giant, and Yellow. They use these words to understand us; then they always try to get as close as possible by peering at us. Some others say it’s rude to point and stare, but I can’t help when I blush. In their fiction and stories, they tell of grand tales taking place among us, as if we were an attraction at an amusement park.

One day I would love to get down on their level and tell them – Nothing but helium is burning up here. It is down in your towns and villages where all of the life is happening.

In the sky, we twinkle and dance, but if truth be told we burn with envy at the creatures down below who are more free, then we will ever be.

“I wish to go on an adventure.” She promised to herself and looked beyond her horizon and smiled as she witnessed two stars, far off on the other side of the galaxy, enter into a binary star formation. In this act, promising one another to orbit the galaxy together until the end of the universe.
