Rising

I woke up this morning and the Sun wasn’t up. I looked at my clock. It said, “10:18 am”. I knew something was wrong. I went outside. I looked up towards the dark sky.

I said, “Um, excuse me. You’re supposed to be on.”

There was no response. But I heard some rustling. Then I heard a thud and then a glass shattered. There was a, “dammit”. I heard a groan. Then I saw the Sun slowly rise.

The Sun said, “Sorry…I’m sorry, I didn’t realize the time. Um, I think I’m supposed to be here. Does that look right?”

I said, “That seems okay. Is everything alright?”

The Sun said, “Yeah, you know, just…”

I said, “Yeah, I know.”
