It was there, in my mind, since I opened my eyes to the world.
It was a silent and free presence.
I didn't understand his 'raison d'etre' until it was time to learn,
then he opened his mouth and I regretted the moment forever!
"I am Elf!", he said.
"Who?", I asked in an unoriginal way.
"My job is to display your mistakes... ethic, moral and general mistakes!"
"Your job is..." I stuttered. My confusion was piling over itself!
"You'll see", he told me sprawling his small figure over one of my brighter ideas, and there are not many of them, to be sure, "we'll be close friends".
