Amma, look look, I have a friend.
there there…she is always with me, wherever I go..
How wonderful…Can you see her?
Yes yes, she is always walking along with me, when I go to school in the morning and when I return from school in the evening. She is funny though. Always wears black and never talks, but she does exactly the same actions like I do.
Oh is it, how wonderful!
After a couple of days, Amma and daughter decide to go out in the afternoon.
amma, yaya, I have become taller see, see, my friend is shorter than me…yipeeeeeeee…
One night after going to bed
Amma Amma, my friend my friend..she disappeared, sob sob
Oh, she didnt, she will be with you tomorrow morning.
No no, but I wanted to show her my new bedsheet. Amma call her back please.
Oh she will be back in the morning, you can show her then.
After some years.
Amma, I am so angry with you.
You didnt tell me so many years, that my friend is actually only my shadow and that she can never get seperated from me 😦
Ah! The loss of innocence!
