Hide And Seek – Part 8/13

He waited impatiently
He couldn’t tell
If eight seconds had passed
Or eight hours
Or eight lifetimes

Darkness kept tugging inside his pocket
Asking him to withdraw
Withdraw from the insanity

The boy stood firm
With Hope by his side

But Hope didn’t stay for long
Through the same open window
She flew out

The boy closed the window
Tightly shut this time
So that nothing more could fly in
And nothing more could fly out

“You’re unforgivable,” gloated Darkness.
The boy said nothing in reply

He turned around to go back
To his little corner on the floor
But something unusual caught his eye
Something bright

It was Light
