TITLE: When He Turns on the Lights (June 1, 2012

this was a fast piece of writing, almost by dictation. Any input welcome. Thanks!
It came to pass that a certain school closed for an unannounced period of time. The only evidence that there had been a school was the buildings, and an assortment of books.
For a long time the school stood empty...apparently empty...and dead...apparently dead.
In the course of time, some young boys who did not know any better found their way into the school and discovered what had been the library.
And they took up and began to read.
And as they read...they began to think they knew all.
There were multiple documents by one who had been at the head of his class and the librarians had collected the best of his writings.
His were more profound then the rest so they were deemed the standard of all wisdom. By all rights, they were the textbooks that the wise who had studied and earned their degrees had learned from.
So it came as a shock when it was announced that the Teacher had returned to the school with new textbooks. In fact, it was said that he had new methods. Well, they may or may not have been new.
You see, some of the children who eventually swarmed the school...(it became a playground of sorts for the courageous ones)...spent all their time in the library. Unknown to them, the Teacher came and went...and some of the students went so far as to say that he would tell some of them when he would come back.
These return visits were called "Awakenings."
Something strange occured, the children in the library never saw the Teacher come. To be sure, some did...but these were the "too easily bored and influenced" ones. When these came back and tried to tell the others the Teacher had reappeared, they were told it could not be. The Teacher himself had said He would only come back....if He did...to destroy the school...not reopen it.
What do you think will happen when the Teacher finally opens the door to the Library and turns on the lights?
