Alone in the Dark

by Raul1

Carl can't go anywhere because it is dark. He doesn't see anything and moves wherever he can go, where there might be an essance of light. There is no light, and he keeps bumping into everything. His feet and knees hurt. The night challenges him to try to live like this. How could Carl ever have a life of this sort?

He remembers what his dad told him to do things by himself. Carl finally finds the stairs, climbs up, starts to touch the door, and quickly falls to his bed asleep.

He feels the comfort. Finally, he doesn't worry about the dark. Right now, it is his friend. Darkness can sometimes be your guide, even if you don't realize it. But don't trust it all the time. In other times it can be your enemy. In carl's case it is a little bit of both.
