There was a random sound in the distance, something peculiar, far beyond the halls where Grace stood. She peered out of her classroom door. It was probably nothing.

Grabbing her backpack, she hurried to meet her friends to catch the bus back home, thinking nothing of this. They always told her to stop reading those silly sci-fi comics, but did she feel like she could give them up? No way! The truth was out there.

It was no wonder that Grace Reynolds began her pursuits in science. She enjoyed all of the clinical experiments and equations. Then she could work her way into searching for life in space!

She grew up loving science through to her college years, and then suddenly stopped all pursuits in the subject. It was an extremely unusual thing! Why would this be a probable outcome? It didn’t make any sense!

Maybe she learnt too much? Or simply gave up the passion of the mysteries.

Actually, in reality, Grace found everything in the subject far too complicated. Equations and chemical compounds no longer offered her a thrill. Maybe it was due to her boredom of sci-fi and being outcast for believing in aliens.

Eventually, she took to dog walking! A nice little stroll through the park with random strangers’ dogs, what a wonderful pastime! Well, if the dogs weren’t too excitable, that is. Trying to clean up their poop with them yanking at the leash was a difficult task. Seeing them happy was more reward than staring through a telescope for hours on end, even in the freezing winter.

Time passed and Grace grew old. She never had any children and never looked up into the night sky thinking of aliens or otherworldly pursuits. It wasn’t a huge loss, there were other people following that dream as she lived her life on a totally different path. In the end, she had peace in her little bubble on Earth, but her dreams would remain in space.
