Cracks

Everyone has seen them. I'm sure I'm not the first ?

Dark shapes that flitter in the periphery of your vision. Tantalizing shapes that disappear when you turn towards them. Figures that play with our minds. One minute they're there and the next they're gone.

7. A Revelation

The Dark shape moved towards the centre of the room and sat in front of me. This was a complete change in their behaviourPreviously when I had talked to them they had kept in the corners. This move represented a big shape shift in their demeanor.  

'We've been watching you over the past few years' the rasping voice of the dark shape said, 'you have shown potential to us, however your present state of happiness had worried us a lot' 

I stared in disbelieve at this statement. Why was my happiness so upsetting to them. Then another thought hit me. He said he had been watching us. Had they been in the room when Sinead and I were being intimate? 

As if reading my mind the dark shape leered. 

'Yes, we've observed you in lots of positions. It was essential to our studies. We believe you to be the one' it stated. 

My fists clenched with anger. How dare these dark shapes invade the sanctity of our wedding bed. How dare they penetrate our most intimate actions? The dark shape sensed the anger. I wondered briefly if they somehow had the power to read minds. I later find out that this was partly right. They sensed emotion in us, however they couldn't tell exactly what we were thinking. That would prove useful later on.  

'Do you know what happened to Sinead?' I asked desperately. My bowels turned to water as I had another thought. If they didn't like my happiness then maybe they had something to do with the disappearance of my true love. 

'She is safe', the shape replied. We will return her to you in good time'.  

'Why have you taken her? Where is she' I exploded. My happiness was none of their concern. I wanted Sinead back as soon as possible. 

'For you to see us, you have to be in a state of unhappiness. We have wanted to communicate with you for the past few months, but your obvious exhilaration has prevented you seeing us.' 

It suddenly made sense. When I'd seen the dark shapes before, I'd been severely unhappy or frightened. This was an earth shattering discovery for me. 

'Where is she?', I pushed, not wanting to be distracted from the task in hand, although my wind was whirling around with these new discoveries. 

'She's safe,' he repeated firmly, 'we'll be returning her in due course'  

The anguish on my face must have been noticeable as in the next breath he gave me a concession. 

'We've taken her to our world' 

How that statement stopped me dead in my tracks. The Dark Shapes had their own world. I'd thought that they lived in the twilight or murky corners until this moment. However this proclamation changed everything again. This meeting with this Dark Shape was proving, although highly stressing, to be extremely informative. I was learning so much about the Darks. 

'How do I get her back?' I asked. 

'Just do what we're about to ask, and we'll return her soon' 

'How do I know that she's alive ?' 

'Put your trust in us and we'll reward you' he said. 

With that, in a flash, he went towards the corner and vanished in front of my eyes. My heart was beating so hard I thought it might burst from my chest. Sinead was alive!
