After the class in the evening, she hung out with her friend Zoey. They discussed the difficult tasks they met while doing the homework. They complained how much pressure they were but also encouraged each other to keep moving on and attend the university that they wished to study at.
Suddenly, they both saw something shining in the bush. They were both surprised and trying to find out what it was. At first, they thought it was something that might be left by someone by chance, and it happened to shine in the dark with some special paint or something else on it. Then they went closer to it, step by step, and they tried our best to be quiet and even held our breath. Everything around them was all in silence. As they moved towards to it, they began to think it might be an insect.
“Wow!” they both shouted out in our hearts. “Maybe it is a …… firefly!” They were both shocked, but they calmed down soon, not wanting to scare the firefly away.
Finally, they saw it. It was really small, cute, and fragile as if once they touched it, it might die. The light appeared to them a lot: it shined regularly, a time lighter, another time darker. They counted the times that it shined, “One, two, three,” just like the stars that fall from the sky.
At last, they held it in our hands. It could be called Tiny! It began to crawl on their hands. This did not feel comfortable, but a little itchy. They wanted to hold it a little longer to observe it. They saw that there was a battery on it is body, which could tell them how long it could live.
It was really marvelous. They were really so excited to have seen it and seemed very happy. The fireflies like the light of hope, gave them courage to face the difficulty.
