Hide and seek is a common game that I think everyone has played during one point in his/her life.
Usually, one person hides and the other would look for him/her.
When the game starts, every plays their role, whether hiding or seeking.
But, it becomes a problem when one is hiding and the other doesn't know that he should be seeking.
That happened one day when I was walking home with Aelig.
On the way to school I met my friend and her son so we all went to the school to pick up Aelig.
On the way back, we walked through a park, the kids were running in front of us while we were chatting.
Suddenly, I discovered that they were no longer in the park and the end of the park was a main road with lots of car passing. We rushed toward the exist but the kids were not in sight. I rushed back towards the park, seeking, then I heard my friend calling me saying that she found the kids.
Where were they?
They were hiding beside a house facing the main road. Aelig was all smiling and thrilled that she has tricked me. She didn't know that I was worried to dead and she didn't understand why it was a bad idea to play hide and seek when the seeker was not informed that the game has started. My friend told me that she had never been so scared in her life. Ok, I felt really guilty because Aelig was the culprit, her friend was just following her. When she saw me, she repeated the game. She led her friend towards the house and hid from our sight. When we found them again, they both giggled with joy.
