Having enjoyed the “Astral Festival” on this wandering planet, I learned from the residents that this romantic festival only began around ten years ago. And the two founders are still alive.
The only thing is, they are currently serving time in prison.
According to the residents, the founders of the Astral Festival are not natives of the planet. They have migrated to this planet from another one. Other than the Astral Festival, they’ve introduced many unique technologies and interesting cultures to this planet. Everyone loved them dearly.
But on the day of the first Astral Festival, while everyone’s distracted by it, the founders sneaked into the National Zoo and released all the animals!
As most of the escaped animals are captured from other planets, they are regarded as Class I National Properties. This incident caused quite a big commotion that year.
"Isn't it ironic that we live on the freest planet in the universe but we take away the freedom of other creatures according to our own will?"
The two founders only defense in court was not accepted and were eventually sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment.
Although some people think that they deserved it, more thought that this is a small revolution about animal rights. The Astral festival they founded is still being held from time to time, each grander than the last.
Before I left this planet, I received a souvenir badge from a participant of the Astral Festival. The badge is designed by the two founders of the Astral Festival.
Looking at the badge, I couldn’t help but feel a vague sense of familiarity with its colour. I looked through the data on my spacesuit, and discovered that this colour is exactly the same as the cosmic-colored ‘fox’ I met on planet A91. Perhaps there are some hidden connections.
But with things that are not related to the journey, I don’t care enough to dig deep into it.
Space is big, life is short.
Written on my way to the next destination
