In the story “A Face in the Dark”, Mr. Oliver was walking down the narrow path through the pine forest when he stumbled upon a boy who was sitting alone in the dark on a rock. Mr. Oliver thought that the boy was a student of his school and was somewhat angry with him as boys were not supposed to go out after dark. A little letter Oliver sensed that something was wrong as the boy was crying with his head hung down and his face covered with his hands. It was rather a silent sobbing and his body shook convulsively. The boy gave no reply to the couple of questions which Oliver threw at the boy regarding what he was doing there or what was wrong with him. But when Mr. Oliver asked the boy to look up, he complied and in the low light of his torch Oliver say that the boy had no eyes, no ears, no nose and no mouth. It was a ’round smooth head — with a school cap on top of it’.
