It was an empty night. no cars driving on the roads, everyone either asleep, watching tv, playing video games, or going on the computer. I did not mind if anything I loved nights like this because it always made me feel like I was the only one in town, Like I could go anywhere in town. Those nights were always my favorites. But then I heard this weird buzzing noise. The crazy thing was it was loud, if anything I had to pay attention to it because it was quiet, but I could still hear it off in the distance. At first, I thought it was something normal like someone watching something on their tv or computer and ignored it. /p

I then saw it moving slowly but by then I assumed it was a slow-moving airplane, nothing out of the ordinary so I kept walking. But then it started getting closer, and the noise got louder. /p

The closer it got to where I was the more I noticed it was less like a plane, and more like a star. It was the brightest thing I had ever seen. It was midnight in October, and I swear it looked the brightest summer day. Eventually as I saw it coming closer, I noticed it had something else in common with a star in that when it came to where I was, I could feel it getting hotter, and before I could react to it, I felt my body melt, and disintegrate. /p

But the strangest thing was I wasn't dead, or at least I didn't feel dead. It was like mentally I was still there but physically I didn't exist. /p

The entire time this happened I also felt myself once again becoming solid matter but every time I re solidified I was a different lifeform, some had multiple eyes, some had none. Some were docile some were ravenous it was like I was one of every lifeform in existence. /p

But I can't stop thinking of that strange light I saw that night, and visions both horrifying, and beautiful that it showed me. I'll always remember the night I saw the midnight sun. /p
