The three gloomy men sit in silence, holding their glasses. Strange enough, they haven’t taken a sip yet.

“To our destiny…”, finally the wise one raise his glass.

This evening is not like any other. Tomorrow they will not see the sun, quite literally.

The earth, they hear, will go rogue. Whether earth gets embraced by another welcoming star or not, it all depends on earth’s ”Destiny”.

    1. The rogue planet, Theia collided with Earth. There are 100,000 more rogue planets than stars in our galaxy alone.
      Earth may very well become a rogue planet, for all we know hopefully in a very very distant future. Thanks, Iain, for reading and commenting.

    1. It is scary to think that one day it will all end… the earth, the Sun.
      I often wonder if we know our purpose yet or if we have any purpose at all.
      Thank you, Varad, for reading and commenting.


    1. Sometimes, an event kicks out a planet into the deep space. Hopefully, it won’t happen to earth in another billion years. Thank you, Violet, for reading and commenting.


  1. I have read that the nice stable orbits that we see are relatively recent, that in the deep, deep distant past (billions of years) the planets may have “gone rogue”. If a star or something came close enough, it is still possible our orbit could be dislodged. Hmmm, hope it doens’t happen any time in the next couple of billion years πŸ˜‰ Interesting story.

    1. Planets do go rogue, due to various reasons. I was intrigued by the rogue planet called Theia which hit Earth billions of years ago. Thank you, Rochelle.
