The Moon

Your world confuses me. I mean, it’s lovely and everything, from what I’ve seen so far, but the thing that really gets to me is your moon.

I have never been on a planet with a moon before and, let me tell you, it sure takes some getting used to. For one, I don’t know how you really deal with the rising and falling of the tides due to its gravitational pull – and I’m still surprised that only your oceans are affected – but that’s not really my main concern at this time. Right now, I’m just having trouble sleeping. Personally, I’m used to the light disappearing once the sun sets. You’re really going to have to enlighten me on how to fall asleep on this planet.

And the heat! Your moon doesn’t just reflect light, but heat as well. There is still a drop in the temperature at night but, you see, I’m used to a larger drop. My body normally goes into a state of stasis with the cold but, with heat remaining, I’m having a hard time shutting down.

I’m just all out of sorts on this world. I do want to find out more about it, but I’m just too out of it right now. Help me fall asleep, and then I’ll inquire further about your ocean tides.

Also, interesting story just for the monologue style.
