I've had enough of you, DARK! I wish you and your scary sounds, your murky monsters, and your pitch blackness would just ... just ... GO AWAY!
ell, that does it! In response to his rant Orion is visited by the Dark who just pops into the boy's room. Not exactly what he expected. Orion and the Dark then embark on an interesting and amusing adventure that changes the child's entire attitude about darkness.
