Udo

The strange silhouette was drawing itself on the orange background of neon lights. The newcomer was surprised by that appearance and did not want to continue contemplating it. So he closed his eyelids tightly and began to pray.

Someone spoke very slowly in his ear:

"Don't you know Udo? Udo is burdening with the weight of the souls of the people of this town and of those who visit it, and his figure is transformed depending on the soul that he burdens in each moment. He's carrying your soul right now. He can barely walk and looks grotesque and disgusting.

That's who you are. Think about how you're going to ease their suffering. What are you going to do?"

 

The newcomer knelt, and as he gazed at the grief of the strange creature, his eyes filled with tears. So much so that he could barely see how the strange creature was transformed into a being of wonderful light, reflecting the feelings of compassion that filled the newcomer’s soul in that instant.
