“You are not as I believed you to be,” it says.
It. Her. Me?
It looks just like me! Well, except the thing with transparent nature, grey color and very dark areas under “my” eyes.
“Oh?” I manage to reply.
She floats, turns upside-down and looks at me with a most peculiar look.
“Well – as I am supposed to be your darker aspects, all that you don’t want to see or acknowledge with yourself – I expected you to be… the lighter aspects of… well, you.“
“What… do you mean?”
She turned around a bit, looked at the little shack. I noticed her embarrassed face from the back of her head since I could see through her.
“Ah, I don’t want us to get off to a bad start, after all, I am something one is not supposed to love or embrace, so I thought I wanted to give you a really good first impression. Silly me to always say what I think and feel, one should be more polite, I need to train those skills.”
She stops. Looks at me, bows and says:
“You are most welcome to my home, dearest. Long time, no see! Would you like me to get you something?”
I follow her in as I don’t have the conscience to say that she can’t make me anything, but I stop when I see her take something down from a little shelf and begins to cook in a kettle.
Instead, I try to start a new conversation.
“So. You are my darker aspects…?”
She nods and smiles. The dark areas under her eyes make it look scary.
“Yes, I am! I am you – at your service! You came to me for a reason and I know you are curious about just that. You are here because of your negative thought patterns. Mostly, because you think you can save the world.You think that you alone are the answer to all. I have to inform you that this is not correct.”
She sighs and looks down at the kettle.
“I guess we can wave goodbye to that great first – and second impression, right?”
