Black Unicorn

There once was a boy from Nantucket… nah… I’m kidding… ok, here it goes…

Deep in the forest was a pond, all the creatures that lived in the forest went there to drink. One of these creatures was a very mysterious one, most of the animals only knew of its existence through stories other animals told. On full moon nights, specially if it was red, this creature would come out of the thickest part of the forest and go to drink at the stream of water that filled the pond.

This creature was a beautiful Unicorn, but there was something very different about it, it was not a white unicorn, it was black as night, even its horn was black as Ebony, deep and beautiful blue eyes. He was not born like that; he was born as white as sea foam, but as it grew up its heart became full of dark feelings. Once this feelings took over its heart, it became black.

The Unicorn was full of anger, hate, mistrust and sadness. Every red moon it would come out and try to speak to the Creator, to try and understand why it was feeling like that and what came over it. It became more distant, grew apart from the rest of the creatures in the forest. It still kept watch over them, but as a distant, invisible protector.

One day, a flash of sunlight brought another Unicorn; this one was white as snow. It roamed through the forest in search of the black one. Late at night they found each other, it was an instant attraction; they fell in love just as their eyes met. All the dark and negative feelings inside of the black Unicorn melted, despite that it didn’t turn white, but it didn’t care, it had finally found its compliment.
