The Fool Who Followed A Ghost

One day, a boy found a ghost in his house hiding in the closet.  He screamed and ran to his bed, where he hid under the covers.

The ghost called to him, “Hey, I don’t bite. I am friendly. I just want to be understood.”

At first, the boy was afraid, but then he got excited with the idea of having a ghost as a friend. Rising from beneath the covers, he asked “What’s your name?”

“Loss,” said the friendly ghost, as he came out of the closet.

“Nice to meet you,” said the boy. “I am Foolish. They call me Fool for short.”

So, Fool and Loss became fast friends. They talked about a lot of things, but they soon realised that they had so little agreement on perspectives. Loss didn’t appreciate food or sleep, and constantly bothered Fool, when he was trying to sleep. Loss however could do so many things that Fool couldn’t do, and he loved to show off.

He could walk through objects. He could fly. He could divide and be in several places all at once! Fool tried to show off his tricks too, but Loss wasn’t impressed with them…
