indecent star gazing

she suddenly got up out of bed and walked out of the house.
after he removed the sleep from his eyes and stretched his limbs, he followed after her.
when he finally caught up, she was sitting on the front porch looking up at the sky.
so he asked her what she was doing.
she told him she was looking at the stars, because even though she didn't believe in such things, she was worried silly the rapture might have taken the stars since clearly the earth didn't cut muster, and she just needed to double check.
he asked her but why do this in the middle of the night, why not check on the stars at a more decent hour?
she told him because she was indecent.
and then he realized she didn’t have a stitch of clothing on.
he thought what the heck and joined her since technically she was right.
so they both sat quietly nude holding hands as they counted together.
and there was no monkey business because double checking the universe required all their concentration.
