Huh?

12 Jan

Five years ago, I battled an illness that knocked me down for a while, and I didn’t have the strength to do much for several days. So, lying around and bored, I started a fantasy story in a small notebook I kept by the bed.

When I returned to work at the youth center, I shared the story with a young aspiring writer and cartoonist who liked to talk about books and movies with me, and draw the staff as if we were characters on The Simpsons.

In my office one afternoon and reading the latest updates on the new project, he looked up, a serio-comic expression on his face, and asked, “Will there be unicorns?”

Wha– ?

I looked back at him, uncertain where this was coming from — or going. “Uhm, no. Why do you ask?”

“Oh, no reason. I just though there might be unicorns.”

“There will never be unicorns in anything I write.”

“Why?”

“There will never be unicorns in anything I write.”

“Okay.”

And that was that.
