Please don't take my sunshine away

A few nights ago, Mallory asked if the sun would ever stop shining. Chris explained that yes, in a million billion years (approximately), the sun would in fact burnt out and do whatever stars do once they burnt out. They talked about this for a few minutes, and then I glanced over and saw Phoebe, quietly sobbing into a pillow.

"What's wrong?" I asked.

"I don't want that to happen to the sun!" she cried.

And what do you say to make it better? "It's okay, honey, by the time this happens you'll be long dead anyway?" I just gave her a hug and told her not to worry, that the sun would be fine. Little darling.
