A long time ago, two stars barreled through space. They were hurtling across the night sky; at such speeds that they seemed destined for a collision.
As they began to approach each other; you could hear earth inhale; waiting for the inevitable explosion.
The stars barely slid by each other. Each stars momentum and speed was unaffected. As the earth exhaled it seemed to cause a ripple; sending both stars slightly off course.
One star was sent through a harsh meteor storm; as the other seemed to sail aimlessly through space. Both seeking their one true orbit; to travel the universe in.

I was attempting to write a toast or a story for my Sister's upcoming wedding and this is what I came up with; however it does not really work. But I love the concept, and will eventually make a complete story out of it. So I am left where I started today; no closer to making a toast or fun story for my Sister's wedding.
The story, A One True Orbit is going to be a fairy tale about the stars. It is a love story of sorts and although it will not be for my sisters wedding; I will most likely dedicate it to her and her husband; as they somewhat inspired the story. I hope you enjoyed the very early sneak peek at a new story idea I will be working on.
Have you ever written a metaphor story? What did you use as the Metaphor?
