‘Sun?’ said Moon, as she wandered along the path of cloud that lead to their shared home in the sky.
‘Of everything. Of nothing, of…oh, I don’t know. I’m just afraid.’
Sun stopped abruptly on the path and turned to take Moon’s hands in his own.
‘It’s okay to be afraid, Moon, but there is no need to be. Fear can only survive in darkness, and you are made of far too much light to feed it what it needs. Have faith. Your fear will be gone before too long.’
Moon didn’t quite understand what Sun meant. But she loved him and respected his wisdom. So she took a deep breath and focused on the shine he told her was the key.
And though the fear returned occasionally, it did not have a home within her. It only had visiting rights.
She could grow to be comfortable with that.
