When I woke my shadow was gone. I was walking on the sidewalk and didn’t see it. It must have disappeared to another person because when I looked again I had a new shadow. It was way different. It didn’t like my curly hair. It didn’t think I was funny. It wasn’t unique. It hated food. It wasn’t smart and it didn’t like blue.
“Why?” I said. “Why is it so different?”
It was strange, when I hopped in my car I drove home. When I got out of the car my real shadow was back.
