All Summer in a day is written by Ray Bradbury
but this comic is written By Stephanie Stankovski
A Long time a ago both rocket men and women brought what some people call home on a forever raining Venus. For seven years all it did was rain, everyone forgot what the sun looked like, all but Margot who came to Venus when she was four, so she stood out because of that
in fact she was so upset she rather be alone than play games with others. If she was tagged she did not follow, when they sang songs her lip barely moved.
There was talk that her parents would bring her back to Earth, it seemed important that they do so. The children here hated her, they hated her paleness, her silence, an her possible future. "GO AWAY" one said "YEAH YOU"LL SEE NOTHING HERE" said another "NOTHING" and with that they shoved her in a closet, not caring about the muffled screams in the closet.
"Margot !" "What ?" "She’s still in the closet where we locked her." "Margot." They stood as if someone had driven them, like so many stakes, into the floor. They looked at each other and then looked away. They glanced out at the world that was raining now and raining and raining steadily. They could not meet each other’s glances. Their faces were solemn and pale. They looked at their hands and feet, their faces down. "Margot." One of the girls said, "Well… ?" No one moved. "Go on," whispered the girl. They walked slowly down the hall in the sound of cold rain. They turned through the doorway to the room in the sound of the storm and thunder, lightning on their faces, blue and terrible. They walked over to the closet door slowly and stood by it. Behind the closet door was only silence. They unlocked the door, even more slowly, and let Margot out.
The rain slacked still more. They crowded to the huge door. The rain stopped. with the sound apparatus, thus muffling and finally cutting off all noise. The world ground to a standstill. The silence was so immense and unbelievable that you felt your ears had been stuffed or you had lost your hearing altogether. The sun came out. It was the color of flaming bronze and it was very large.
The girl, standing in the open, held out her hand. "Oh, look, look," she said, trembling. They came slowly to look at her opened palm. In the center of it, cupped and huge, was a single raindrop. They glanced quietly at the sun. A few cold drops fell on their noses and their cheeks and their mouths. The sun faded behind a stir of mist. They turned and started to walk back toward the underground house
Then after that the story just ends.
