This is how the story of Wolly begins (by Wolly, grade 6).
A long, long time ago in a far away galaxy there was…
Nope, not Star Wars, not star Trek, nothing interesting. Just a small planet orbiting a small sun.
This planet is not very exciting, not even a bit. No species, no animals, not even plants. Just rocks and one of them was Wolly.
Wolly could not move because rocks can not move and Wolly is a rock. Wolly could not meet his friends (he could not even meet his friends if he had friends) because he could not walk to them. So Wolly was bored the whole day and spent his time doing nothing because rocks do nothing.
One day, a very boring day indeed (like every day in the year) Wolly was lying on the ground and thought about what to do today.
“I think I will do nothing today,” he thought. That was his hobby (or have you seen a rock doing something other than nothing?). As he lay on the ground doing nothing he did not notice a rock 100, no, 1000 times bigger than him. It was a meteor. It crushed into the surface of the planet and hurled Wolly into space. He did not know where this emptiness was taking him until he saw a blue planet at the horizon of the universe.
… to be continued.
Wolly (PHF21) is one of a series of rocks created by students at Phorms in Steinbach, Germany. If you have found this rock and would like to continue this story, please let us know.
