The little girl had never seen her shadow before... as a matter of fact, the little girl had never seen anything at all. She was born completely blind, her own reflection a mystery to her. All the same... when her Shadow began to speak to her, a chilling sense of familiarity trickled down her spine.
Hello, little one, it said, it's voice as soft as velvet.
"Hello," the girl replied.
Do you know me? the Shadow asked.
"Are you my... Shadow?"
Good, very good. You see my child... I've been alone in the dark for so very long. Just like you. I was wondering if... would it bother you if... could I come out and play? The Shadow asked.
