Hi MiMi! I like the rhythms of this one. The ending begs the question of whether the Master had the right to blow out the candle, since the flame is equated to life. Granted, he created it, but once it lives on its own, should he be able to snuff it? I suppose one could argue that the candle-flame doesn't live independent of him... it consumes the fuel he provides. Ah, random moments of philosophy are a pleasant diversion.
My only suggestion would be to use some punctuation. Little commas and periods here and there contribute a lot to meaning, by showing the way ideas relate to one another. I'll put my suggestions in red so you can see them. (I'm assuming that capital letters mark the starts of sentences.)
Interesting read; thanks for posting!
