Echo of a Reflection

Our setting is a dark toy store around 1950, where toys align each and every wall. A spark of light blinks into existence, and follows the grain upon one of the wooden shelves where some toys lay. The light enters the eyes of a brown stuffed bear. He looks at his paws with fascination, stands up and bumps into the toy next to him; it springs to life with the same excitement. The bear begins to touch every toy it can see, starting with the ones next to it, and the summoned do the same. Toys from all sides of the store are jumping off of shelves, investing life into the others. One of the larger wooden toys breaks through the glass in the front window, and the others join him. They all look up in the starry night sky and see the moon. One looks to another in agreement, and the leader points to a pond across the street from the store. The reflection of the moon is glowing with innocence upon the water. Every toy blasts as fast as they can towards the light. Cloth tears, screws come loose, knitting becomes undone. Toys trample each other relentlessly. The surviving leap into the pond to only find that they cannot reach the moon and sink to the bottom of the lake. The light appears once more, this time traveling out of the bear's eyes and shatters into oblivion. Looking back, we see a trail of broken toys, parts, and shatters of wood.

v2: Added more to the ending, added a bit more depth.
