We worked on the wall till the break was almost closed up. We could see over the wall where the break opened up. Resilient stood back and was pleased with the work we did. Soon a friend approached. Her shirt said loneliness. This friend was crying.
“What is wrong?” I asked her.
“This wall makes me sad.” she said.
Resilient was mad. “I am not talking the wall down. We must be protected.”
Loneliness asks, ” Can we at least leave a hole to look through in case they come?”
I was concerned then that Resilient would not allow it. She sighed and said ok.
So there in the wall above the new bricks she left a hole. Not one big enough for anyone to get through. Just big enough for us to see if anyone was coming. This made loneliness a little happier.
We took turns looking to see if we could see any more friends.
“This may take a while.” I said. “Let’s not give up”
“ok, Courage” the others replied.
