The second-year star was in fair shape this year, but twelve weeks of training camp would make sure he, and everybody else was as well. Comet was talking no chances. He was the leader of this group, had been for over fifty years and no sophomore was going to threaten his position. That accident with the pine trees would make an impression. The sophomore jinx had struck. That shiner of a broken nose would even affect his voice, making it harder for him to talk to the boss when pulling the sleigh. No number two slot for Rudolph this year.
Those below raised their heads to look above, unaware of the significance related to the dazzling trail of brilliance hurtling across the night sky. The comet moved swift and silent, stardust in its wake and intent to reach a definitive target. It struck some distance away, burst of fire and flame, tunneling into the earth and creating a vast crater to be the cause of speculation for eons yet to come.
The planet's inhabitants lumbered back to their lairs, oblivious that during one such happenstance occurring not too far in the future, they would not be anywhere near so lucky.
