The Shadows Uplifted…
After a tiring day, as she barged into her room, she habitually walked towards the window.
“God! He’s still sitting here!”. Through the window-pane that was totally blurred by the heavy rain, she could see silhouette of a young boy – sitting exactly where he was sitting yesterday – on the pavement opposite to her window.
He was the same boy who had knocked at her door three nights ago. He said he was very hungry. He badly needed help, a place to stay as it was a stormy night. Assuming that he was a trickster of some sort, she had refused. Moreover, she was getting late for a late-night party.
Night after night, the shadowy image sat outside her closed window but she felt scared to open it.
Today, as rain drops lashed the window-pane, she again saw his vague figure. This time she felt a tinge of pity for this homeless urchin, so she went out to check. But all she could find was was some shapeless rock. Probably no boy ever sat there.
She decided she’ll search for the boy. And help him.
