The Night Light: Be Careful What You Wish For

My name is Antônio Pereira, but everyone knows me as ArthurBlack. I am a writer. In the past, I was rich, influential, andcoveted because of my children's stories. But I lost almosteverything. You know how it is ... what comes easy, goes easy...Since I'm opening my heart, I need to confess that I lied aboutmy most famous book, the book that became a great success incinema. I always thought they would never talk about it, but I waswrong.I was approached by the man who knows my secret, and he made mea proposal that I could not refuse. I promised that I would write anew children's story, and I will follow all his rules.So, I'm beginning to realize that there is something much strangeabout this place that he brought me and then left me alone. Mynights are plagued by situations that are beyond my comprehension.Hallucinations? Reality? I don't know.There are doors in this world that open in unknown places. Maybethey are responsible for the appearance of the silhouettes, thevoices, and the intense white light erupted from the darkness ofthe countryside. Each day I stay here, my perception becomes morenebulous.The only certainty that I have is the book that I write everyday becomes completely different right after I go to sleep.
