The Boy That Never (Really) Was!

Note: This is not a worldview, or political statement one way or the other! Just a short story from somebody’s personal Twilight Zone!

————

A woman photographer was at a photo shoot. A young boy was there staring intensely at her. She didn’t know why. So she approached him and asked, “Why are you looking at me like you do!”

He didn’t reply. She then asked if he was here with his parents?  Again no reply. So she finally asked, “Do you need a ride home?” No answer. He just ran off.

In the days that followed, she would see him wherever she went.  She even saw him from her window looking up at her from the street.  When she turned away and looked back, he had vanished!

The next time she saw him, she had to find out why he was always there?

His reply, “Why didn’t you want me?”

“What do you mean, I didn’t want you?”

His reply, “Wasn’t I good enough for you?”

Shocked, she finally realized what this was about!  She then said, “Sometimes we make choices that seem right but regret in the future. I’m sorry if you think that I didn’t want you!”

Well, they became very close. But one day as she was looking at him he just faded away, never to be seen again!

Luckily, she had some photos of him in her appartment. But even they -one day- just faded away.

All that now remained were some faint memories of

“The Boy That Never (Really) Was!”

Loosely from ‘A Twilight Zone!’
