I hope this works:

Tell us a story, they whisper. Tell us a story to take us away. A happy ending, a prince in disguise, a beautiful horse and a never-ending sky. Tell us a story.

He tells of monsters and myths made up in the night, of heroes with swords and fire, chasing the darkness away, bringing about the dawn, lighting the world with hope, a future away from pain.

Tell us a story, they whisper. Dream-keeper, hope-seeker, tell us a story. Give us life. Give us hope and escape.

There was a man,
he says. A man cursed by an evil doctor. He was transformed into a nomlie, ugly and horrific. They sent him to the basement and he never saw the sun again. He was there for years and years, screaming, crying, tortured by the doctors every day. They wanted to see how many different ways they could make him hurt.

But he escaped, right?
they ask. He gets away.

he says. One day, a little girl, just like us, she snuck down there. She was hiding, bleeding, crying. She heard him roaring in fury and pain, and she wasn’t afraid. She followed the sound ‘til she came to his cell, and then she waited for the doctors to leave.

And then,
they ask, and then? What happens?

He pauses, looks around. Dawn is coming, soon, and they haven’t slept at all. Tomorrow night, he says. I’ll finish the story. But we have to get some rest.

He smiles, meeting each of their eyes. Tomorrow night, in freedom, beneath star-filled sky, I’ll tell you the end.

Thank you so much for writing this. I really like it. Do you mind if I ask who's telling the story?

I'm sorry for not replying sooner. I hadn't checked the e-mail address for my Lj.

Ben's the storyteller.

oops! I don;t know what I was thinking when I deleted my comment.

But i said this: Please tell me this isn;t the end? It's hard to find many good Ben -centric stories!

As of now, that's it.

Of course, you could request a fairy tale retold in "Dark Angel"... *points to main body of post*
