In the Summers, the weather was getting hot and the people slept on the roofs. Their looks were at sky and looked at the Moon and Stars.

Moon almost knew all the Children and had a good memory of them.

The Children went to the rooms when the cold season was coming and the windows were closed.

Moon was sad and alone, till a new friend was found.
