THERE was once a man who traveled to the moon and back in search of his one true love.But before we tell the tale, we must first tell of its hero --Because for what good are even the grandest of talesIf not for the hero who masterfully conquers all evil in the end?Now the hero of this little tale isn’t at all like other heroes you might have come to know.You might even say that there was nothing at all heroic about how he appeared.He stood with a slouch and his hair always had this uncanny ability to curl away in the opposite direction he wanted it to.(The hero, for the life of him, never did quite figure out how Superman always managed to look dashing in his signature slicked-back hairdo even in the most urgent crisis.)The hero was not exceedingly brave, either.Nor did he possess superhuman strength.Or even just above-average good looks and charm.(Which, by the way, the hero reckoned to be far more useful and practical than x-ray vision or spiderwebs spewing spontaneously from one’s wrist.)This hero is flawed, like you and me.And admittedly a bit on the desperate side, like all of us are at one point or another.But the hero did do one thing well.Too well, in fact.And that is he loved another with all of his being.
And like all people who love, the hero blinded himself from reality, and chose only to see what he desired.So it was that our ill-fated hero lived in bliss --Until one night when he called her name and there was simply no answer.Nothing but silence, and the sound of the curtain swooshing lightly around the windowpane illuminated only by moonlight.
The hero yearned to have her back, for in her absence he had only managed to love her more.She was gone forever, of course, but the hero refused to be convinced otherwise.So how does the hero’s tale end, you might ask.It doesn’t really.For every night, the hero goes back to the last memory he has of his one true love --And that is of her standing in glorious perfection, illuminated only by the moonlight,And the moon full and round, lit with a dull yellowish glow, right outside the window.
