The Bridge #5


"If I fall off that bridge I'll fall into the Nowhere between dimensions and I'll never get home! I'll be forever lost!"
"No you won't," the boy cried aloud, "The bridge won't fall! I'll never stop believing! Never!"
The monster shook his head and, wiping tears from its muzzle, opened the wardrobe door. And the boy saw the crumbling stone bridge, a neglected edifice, almost derelict, disappearing into a far distant black backdrop of twinkling stars. Even as he watched, another piece crumbled away. He turned to see if the monster was still there and another, larger, piece fell away.

    Oh dear... this is so sad, but someone told me once there was no Santa Claus, but of course that’s not true, so keep the faith young man.

    Of course there's a Santa! And a tooth fairy. :)
