Written and illustrated by me


Subsequent to a severely destructive earthquake, a boy dashed into his bedroom room because there remains his last happiness—a snow globe given by his mother. Since his mother passed away, he has isolated himself for ages. 


When the boy is supposed to pick up the snowglobe, he is astonished after opening the drawer -- there is a new galaxy, in which three planets are floating in solitude. Staring at the unconnected planets for a while, the boy collects the scattered blocks to create a bridge and puts his little postman into the galaxy. As soon as the postman touched the world, he comes alive.

The postman embarks on an unknown journey and travels between the planets. The postman collects happiness from the inhabitants of Sunset Planet and diligence from Steam Planet. Playing a role in delivery, the postman exchanges these two energies with two planets respectively. 


After finishing the journey, the postman walks into the cracked snow globe. The boy takes the snow globe from the drawer. Something magic happens to him.
