The glorious crescent moon was slowly waning as morning grew steadily closer. As the sun finally showed its face over the horizon, the city below began to bustle. Beneath the gentle touch of the warm golden beams, children hurried to school, parents ran errands, and citizens reported for work until midday, when they would all be released from their everyday tasks to celebrate.

It was a sight that she would never tire of viewing, stunning as it was.
