Hide And Seek – Part 9/13

“Why is my friend, Darkness, so afraid of you?” asked the little boy

And Light said —
“A long, long time ago
Darkness used to dwell in Heaven
And Light was his closest friend
They were inseparable
Running around, jumping, playing
Spreading happiness everywhere
Always together

“They were also God’s favourite children
He loved them so much
That He let the world be their playground
But He also gave them some duties
He asked them
To keep the playground intact
To not let any harm come to it
All they had to do
Was to travel to every corner of the world

“One ill-fated day
While leisuring with Darkness
Light forgot all about her duties
A portion of the universe
Was left unattended
It began to rot
And soon it withered
Withered beyond recovery

“When God summoned the two
For an explanation
Light stood still
Without uttering a single word
Fear gripped her heart
Fearing the worst for Light
Darkness lied to God to save her

“But God knew the truth
And He was furious beyond words
Furious with Light
For neglecting her duties
And not owning up to her fault
And furious with Darkness for lying

“God punished them for their defiance
He let them have the playground
But cursed them such that they can never be together
Wherever there be Darkness, there will be no Light
And wherever there be Light, there will be no Darkness
It was a playground still
But they could not play together anymore

“God took away Darkness’s legs
And let him abound the universe
Cursing his heart with a fear of Light
He let Light keep her limbs
But cursed her such that
Wherever she will go
She will wipe out her best friend

“And that is why your friend, Darkness, is afraid of me.”

“So you and him could never be together? But surely God cannot be so cruel. He must have given you a way to break the curse too.”

“He did. The only way we can break the curse is by being together.”

“But that is what the curse forbids you from doing…”

Light merely smiled, “I know.”
