The Tenant of the Light

A fable about darkness

“The world goes dark,” the old man said to the boy. “At night, it surrenders its light to the darkness. It’s how the night gains its power, spreading darkness to all the evil spirits of the underworld. As Autumn turns to Winter and people go inward to the hearth, these dark spirits gain strength.”
