"Our story begins a very, very long time ago with a young girl. One day, this girl spotted a rusted spaceship holding a small star child.

"What’s your name? Are you lost?" the girl asked the star child. "I’m Luma, and I’m waiting for Mama. She’s coming for me on a comet!” said the star child, who had been waiting day and night.

"Don’t worry. I’ll wait with you," the little girl promised Luma.

At nightfall, the little girl borrowed her father’s telescope and peered into the sky. She looked and looked, but she saw nothing. Hours turned into days and then years, but still the sky revealed nothing. Finally, the little girl sighed and said to Luma, “If we stay here looking much longer, I’ll be an old lady soon.” But then she had an idea. “Why don’t we go out there and find your mother ourselves?”

The girl and Luma fixed up the rusty spaceship, and then the two set sail into the starry sky. And this is how the search for the celestial mother began.”
