Once upon a time, there was a little star who lived with her big sister star on the edge of a starry thicket. The little star was all yellow, so her sister called her Little Yellow One. The two sisters had an even bigger sister from their starbirth cluster who lived in the middle of the stellar thicket.
One day, the biggest sister got some really nasty hiccups, so that the stellar thicket got all lit up with her convulsions. The middle sister became worried about her and gave her little sister a mighty kick, so that she would go and see their biggest sister. "Go and see our biggest sister", she said to Little Yellow One, "and don't stray off the path, so you don't get eaten by the beasts that roam the thicket."
But Little Yellow One set off, skipping and singing, and didn't pay too much attention to where she went. And then suddenly, there was a terrific explosion (not that Little Yellow One knew that it was called an explosion) and she got all confused and lost her way completely. But after a long time (Little Yellow One wasn't sure how long) she saw, or felt, or perhaps just guessed, that Something was coming her way.
"What, ho!" she called out. "Who is there?"
"I'm your Biggest Sister," came a dark, dark voice from the void.
"But Biggest Sister, the other stars form arcs around you", Little Yellow One said.
"All the better to see you with their arc-shaped eyes, my child," said the Cavern of Darkness.
"But Biggest Sister, I feel so strangely pulled towards you," said the little star.
"All the better for me to hug you," said the blackness.
"But Biggest Sister, I'm unravelling! cried Little Yellow One.
"All the better for me to eat you," replied the Black Hole, as the spaghettified Little Yellow One spiraled down its horribly transformed Biggest Sister's insatiable maw.
