Have you ever read children’s book for grown-ups “The Little Prince” by Antoine De Saint-Exupery? It sold more than 200 million copies. One of the best selling books. I read it many times. I like it very much. But I always thought that the book is too short. 27 short chapters only. Almost like some chapters were missing. And now one of my Angels keeps telling me that he found one of the missing chapters and he wants me to publish it. I don’t argue with Angels. So here it is:
The Little Prince – Missing Chapter – “The Prince of Pain”.
The next Planet was inhabited by the Prince of Pain. A very ugly human. The ugliest of the ugly.
“What are you doing here?” asked Little Prince.
No answer. The ugly human ignored the Little Prince.
Little Prince thought: “Very ugly and ignorant”. !
And he asked again: “Who are you?”
Finally the ugly human raised his ugly head and said: “I’m the Prince of Pain”.
“So what are you doing Prince of Pain?” – asked Little Prince.
“I’m giving pain to humans and animals”.
“Why are you doing this?” – demanded Little Prince.
It gives me a pleasure when I watch them to suffer” – replay Prince of Pain.
“So why are you here?” – ask Little Prince.
…”Years ago I was living on Earth, but now they have too many Painkillers. ! So for my own safety I have to live here on this lousy planet, give pain with my pain-laser-gun and watch them suffer through my telescope. It is not good anymore”.
“Oh Heavens!!! Thought the Little Prince looking up on the stars. Something have to be done about it. This ugly creature have to be stop”.
And the Little Prince got the brilliant idea…..
He said to Prince of Pain: “Look above, owe there, do you see this dark star? This is new Planet with many people and animals on it, and they don’t have any Painkillers yet….”
At that moment the Prince of Pain get-up from his seat, run to his spacecraft and took-off, heading straight for the dark star without even saying “thank you”… !
“What an ungrateful man”… Said the Little Prince to himself.
Of course, the dark star was a Black Hole. And the Little Prince was left with mixed feelings. First he felt very badly for telling a first lie in his life. But he was very happy that there would be no more Pain and Suffering on the Planet Earth….. And he continued happily on his journey…..
If you like, if you think that there are more missing chapters of “The Little Prince”, then maybe you can find inspiration in the little book. Write next missing chapter. Let me know. We may collect many chapters and make a little book: “Missing Chapters”…..
This is only a thought. One of my Angels idea. “You gotta have a dream” – he said.
