My name is Harold Ernest and I have a story to tell about my shadow. When I was walking through my neighborhood with several of my friends. My shadow keeps whispering to me. My friends tell me where are those whispers coming from. I told them that I have no idea. Well, we went outside of our community and into the city. We went to a restaurant and started ordering food, got drinks, and having conversations with each other. A few hours later they told me that they have to be heading home soon.
I tell my friends that I understood. They went their separate ways, and I went to mine going home. Once I was walking there were a couple of bullies who wanted to start trouble. They pushed me around, starting to hit me, asking to do favors for them. My shadow fought back against them. I was shocked that it fought them single-handedly. They ran away and the shadow told me that they won’t mess with me anymore.
It tells me that I shouldn’t walk alone in places where there is danger. He was right, I listened to it, and got home. I was confident and relaxed that my shadow was solving my battles and giving me advises. Seven weeks later it told me to study for a career. So, I won’t turn out as a bum. Suddenly, a few years later I graduated from a University with my diploma to become a doctor.
Mr. Shadow wanted me to shake his hand, but I saw no hand. I only watched a shadow hand, but I shook it. It responded happy and was proud of me. I think if it once I am in my senior years and how it helped my life along the way. I now am married with my wife, and have five children. This is definitely a happy ending. I never thought that me and it could overcome huge obstacles, but we made it happen.
Once I turned old I have died and so did my shadow. My wife, children, friends, and family attended my funeral. They were sad that I passed away, but are proud of my achievements. They were also proud that I was their dad. I now am with my friend the shadow in Heaven with God and Jesus Christ.
