Far away hidden in the forests remained two villages within these villages it lived two families. Two tribes both bein at war with each other.
There lived amongst them #sons
and daughters, brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers. In the middle between each village there was a place in which no one would dare step.
Except two boys.
Two boys who had no #knowledge
of each other or of each other's tribes.
One would #play
and sit beside the river to escape the wars and bloodshed behind him, the other would also play and sit to escape the wars and bloodshed behind him .
Both boys had no knowledge of each other as both boys would play at separate times.
Until one day.
One day whilst one was playing alongside the river, the other had appeared not realising another would be there. Cautiously the boy approaches the other. Starring at each with no words. Silence between them, such silence that even the wings of #birds
could be heard from afar.
After time one speaks. "Are you here to kill" fiercely looking at each other the other replies. " I'm here to watch the river as it flows and #listen
to the birds sing, I am not here to "kill"
They both sit opposite ends of the river. After some time they left saying not a word to each other.
Days had passed that the place no one would dare step became silent once again. But not long after both boys returned and had found each other starring at the river as it flows along it's stream. Cautiously both boys started to talk but none would reveal their true #identity
or their families name.
Both where soldier boys at war. Days would pass where they would meet up and discuss together ideals and their #perception
Both would talk about the pains that war entails.
Both had taken losses.
