Tales by the Moonlight
Every night in the summer when the moon stands bold on the podium, they gather around her. Children from neighbouring homes sit around her in front of the town hall. She looks at them and smiles. Everyone is eager to be fed with her old tales unsatisfied by yesterday’s tales.
One night at the end of her tale, she noticed an unusual silence. Hands didn’t go up. Instead each one walked up to her, embraced her and went home. It was an emotional night. The tale brought a change in the recalcitrant ones. It set a new path for them.
