Shivering, I enter the light. A surge of warmth washes me clean in an instant, wringing out my demons. They fall as shadows behind me, stretching outwards, growing thinner and thinner until they are almost gone…almost.
Almost is enough. I can tear my thoughts free of dark things for a moment, to concentrate on you. You, standing before me, smiling. Your arms outstretched, your heart beating proudly on your sleeve.
We embrace, and so do our shadows. Us and our demons, together.
Let us play.
