One day a friend asked him why he hadn't done something
with it, and he said he really didn't know. He thought about this, and
pondered on it, and then in the middle of the night, awoke, went
downstairs and lifted an old rusty key off a hook.
He went to the shed, opened the door and went inside. Shining his torch
into the dark he saw old tools, rusty nails, broken floorboards and so
on. All of which made it a very dangerous place for a young boy.
He had left the shed alone all that time because although his conscious
mind was adult, he still had the unconscious attitude of fear towards
the shed that his father had used to keep him safe.
