Christmas came and went and now it was the week before New Year's. The Creator had not seen his young friend Nicholas for a while but knew where to find him.
Nicholas tried to read a magazine as tears began to flow down his face. He liked coming to the library because it was quiet and he could get away for a while from his troubles. He was blue because he and his friend still had not resolved their conflict with each other.
" Hello Nicholas".
He looked up, wiped tears from his eyes and saw the Creator sitting across from him.
" I've missed talking to you" he said with a smile as he glanced at the daily newspaper that was also on the table. " I also missed you at Christmas.
" I'm sorry" Nicholas replied with his head down in shame. " I just didn't want to spend time with anybody".
" Because of your friend" replied the Creator who already knew the reason why he did this.
