"And this was the classroom of the children of the rocket men and women who had come to a raining world to set up civilization and live out their lives."
"Hey everyone, let's put her in a closet before teacher comes!' 'No,' said Margot, falling back. They surged about her, caught her up and bore her, protesting, and then pleading, and then crying, back into a tunnel, a room, a closet, where they slammed and locked the door."
"The sun came out. It was the color of flaming bronze and it was very large. And the sky around it was a blazing blue tile color. And the jungle burned with sunlight as the children, released from their spell, rushed out, yelling, into the springtime."
"It has been raining for seven years; A thousand forests had been crushed under the rain and grown up a thousand times to be crushed again. And this was the way life was forever on the planet Venus." The main character was a young girl at the age of 9 just like all the other children named Margot.
The children all spent most of their time in their classrooms with their classmates and would talk about the sun that comes out every 7 years for only an hour.
"Oh, look, look,' she said, trembling. They came slowly to look at her open palm. In the center it, cupped and huge, was a single raindrop. She began to cry, looking at it."
They were all very rude and mean to Margot because she swore she remembered how the sun looked and when she described it they all believed she was lying and decided to lock her in a closet while they went out to see the sun.
"Margot!' 'What?' 'She's still in the closet where we locked her."
The sun came out and their teacher called them all out of the classroom to go out and have a feel from the sun as Margot was still left inside. They all forgot about her even being in the closet because of the great time they were having outside in the sun.
It begins to rain once again and they all become disappointed and he'd on back inside for another seven years.
Someone finally remembered that they had left her in the closet and let her out . Treat people the way you want to be treated.
