Hidden in Darkness
I went to visit a friend who had been in an accident. He had lost control of his cycle and fell into the sewer.
“What happened?” I asked him.
“A black cat crossed my path,” he replied.
“Come on, I know you don’t believe in that superstition.”
He looked me square in the eye.
“I know I don’t, but the streetlight wasn’t on, and I didn’t see the damn cat till it was too late.”
