Hide And Seek – Part 10/13

She asked, “So where is Darkness, your friend, hiding?”

“I keep him in my pocket,” the boy answered

“How about I go inside your pocket, say hello to your friend, and break the curse?”

“No, no, no, no, no, no, …”

“Why is that?”

“I don’t know. I am scared. What if something happens?”

“That’s what happens when you stick around Darkness for so long. He is a great friend but he teaches you a lot of other things like fear…”

“But even if you go inside my pocket, Darkness will disappear; just like it has disappeared from this little room. This room had never known what it is like to be lit. Now if Darkness ever comes back, this room will loathe him. It will never be the same again. Things have changed.”

She smiled, “That’s what I am here for.”

“It is not easy to accept change even if it is for your own good…”

Without waiting another second, she jumped right inside his pocket and caused the boy tremendous panic. But just as quickly as she went in, she came out.

“Stop screaming, little boy. You’ve been duped.”

“Duped? What do you mean?” The little boy asked, recollecting his breath.

“Darkness does not dwell in your pocket.”

“That just could not be. He told me he stays there. I’ve seen him there. Surely he must have disappeared at the sight of you. Where else could he be?”

“He dwells in your heart,” she said

“My heart?”

“Yes, in a little hole in your heart.”
