A DAY'S WAIT

The boy is waiting...

The little boy is waiting for his end... a paradox? No, it's just a simple and quite widespread fear to die. Many children are afraid of something, but, of course, not everybody thinks of death. But sometimes it happens. So, the little boy still has no idea what life really is (and as we can see, not every adult has), but he's already learned that life has certain END. He knows that one can't live with forty-four degrees on the thermometer. And he.. oh, poor one! Has a hundred and two! So, what does he have to do? Only wait for the moment of death... but, leaving sarcasm and irony, the idea of the story is quite dramatic. No, it's not the boy's fear to die that is in the focus... it's just a background. The main conflict are the relationships between the father and the son, their permanent misunderstanding. It seems that the boy is not waiting for the end, but for his father's question "hey, Schatz, what's wrong?” and that will be enough to believe that everything is ok, there will be no fear anymore and no waiting...

And one more detail... remember little boy Nick who believed that he would never die. How different are his son's thoughts... may be, that's the answer – the father and the child are just too different to understand each other.
