The Six Collectors
The Six Collectors appeared long before Gaia had spin a full circle. They still live in the most secret place of the planet, doing the best job in the world. Night after night, they stroll in a perfect formation, looking for all the fallen stars that failed to carry a wish. Once they make sure they are all right, the Collectors take them under their Magic Gazebos, where its a sort of an express star hospital. Once the pointy fellas feel better and gain their shiny selves back, they fly back to the night sky, revived and surely with more patience than before.
So the next time you see a falling star, don't be troubled when you dont get to think of a wish on time. Soon you ll have another go. And another.
