So very dark

Så mørkt det ble

Afraid of the dark in the middle of the day.

A young boy is trapped in a darkened elevator. He is terrified, and has a bad conscience because he is not really allowed to take the elevator alone. Will he ever be found? Does he dare press the alarm button? The button that only his mum is allowed to use?

Illustrated by Øyvind Torseter.
