Outside on the cool night I dashed around the house while brother stared at me.

"What are you looking for" he asked

"A candle" I said as I kept popping cabinets open "Ahh yes there is one. And now I need matches."

He stared staring at me at I soon dashed around again. Finally when I found what I was looking for I grabbed the candle and the matches and dashed out the front door. He sighed and followed me out looking a bit confused. I sat the candle on the floor and struck a match and watched the candle take light.

"May I ask why are you doing this?"

"Seto you can be so narrow minded, tell me what you see."

"I see a candle with a flame."

"That's what I thought but to me it's a beacon of light and warmth."

"Uh huh, go on wise one."

"Well this is a way of guiding a way home for lost souls who need a helping hand. The light says here come here where love can be found. I will help you find those you love."

"Well how come of all nights you did it?" He looked at me

"You read the paper and you know so why do you ask. Isn't it enough to see this. In all of the darkness there is a little bit of light which helps soothe those who need it."

"Yes Mokuba it is something sweet and above all kind."

In the middle of the night I jumped out of bed to make sure the candle was still lit but to my little eyes I see my brother sitting by the candle. He looked up at me and said "I made sure all night the candle would stay lit so they would find home."

The only thing I could do was run out the door and hug him and tell him "Thank you Big brother."

So if anyone looked out to the house they saw a little flicker of light for those who needing a helping hand
