Albert Einstein once said, “God does not play dice.” The question is...does God play Blackjack? Anyway onto the flash fiction!
Your shadow's a very dangerous thing. You shouldn't trust something that changes shape and bends different ways so easily. What you should you think of a thing that changes as much as a shadow? Where every moment of the day, switch of the light, or even flicker of a candle turned them to something totally different? It's something quite insane and unstable.
There is one place to control your shadow. Lock yourself in a box where not even a single drop of light can get in. Not something like cardboard, light gets in, it must completely sealed, light gets in where air does. Work hard and maybe you can find something that lets in air and keeps out the light. You need food and water? That will let in light when you open the door. You worry too much about things other than your shadow. Or maybe you need the light and the outside world like your shadow. Maybe you change as much as it does and are as crazy as it.
