It was a hot and dreary day. Magena walked out of her hut surrounded by fields of flowers. She walked over to her favorite flowers, the Elvas Amaryllis, overjoyed with her fields of flowers made up of tulips, roses, daisy, and cactus dahlias. Magena loved being out in her field with Sister Sun shining her way and waking up the flowers. Magena made all sorts of colorful bouquets out of the flowers. Her bouquets were made in all combinations that she could think of. She made bouquets for weddings and parties by mixing flowers with shades of red, purple, blue, and white. All while singing with the birds and animals until Sister Moon came up to glow.

One day, Magena noticed one thing. When Sister Moon came up in the sky, no one was there for Sister Moon, for her light was not as bright at Sister Sun. Sister Moon was lonely and sad, for she was the only one in the dark sky. Magena pondered and wondered while watering her flowers. One tiny mouse came in her field, and Magena noticed that the mouse carried a flower she has not seen in her field before. Wondering where that flower came from, she scoured her fields for the flower. Moving up and down her fields of flowers, Magena walked and walked in the fields until she came to the outer layer of her elvas amaryllis. Under the elvas amaryllis was a small bundle of pentas, Magena was about to pick it out as if it was a weed, but Sister Moon came out and shone on the white pentas. Sister Moon’s light made the pentas shine bright just like the sun.

Jumping with joy, she grabbed the mouse and kissed the little mouse. “You have given me the greatest idea ever,” Magena said with twinkles in her eyes. She went to the outer layer and began to dig, Magena dug and dug until the area was filled with rocks and weeds, making the best soil for flowers to grow. She walked over to the small bundle of pentas and place the plants into the soil. Magena also took the seeds of pentas and planted them in the field. With the help of Sister Sun and Brother Rain, the small bundle of pentas flourished into a whole field of pentas. Rejoiced, Magena told the villagers to come to her hut when Sister Moon come up in the sky.

Once the villagers came to Magena’s hut, Sister Moon began to rise up. Magena, in the field of the white pentas, smiled at Sister Moon. Magena bent down and plucked a bundle of pentas. She held the pentas up to Sister Moon, and then threw it up in the sky. The white pentas sparkled brightly in the night sky. Magena beckoned the villagers to come and join in the celebration. Sister Moon was elated and to express her gratitude, Sister Moon took the pentas and put them next to her in the sky. “Magena, thank you for this gift. I shall call these pentas, star, in honor of you, Magena.”

From that day forward, stars accompanied the Moon when it came up in the night sky. A happy and satisfied Magena grew flowers in the shape of the stars just for Sister Moon to have.
