Shadow World


Claude stared at the giant shadow made by the tiny toy bike sitting on the window seal above his head.

He thought of a game.

He curled his fingers into the flick position and while watching the opposite wall lined them up underneath the bike shadow. He flicked. The bike flew up into the air turning in circles until it reached the top of the sun square projected on the wall. It vanished into the unlit darkness.

Claude gulped. He bolted up and searched the window seal with frantic hands.

The real bike was gone, lost in the shadow world forever.
