Great gain

Great gain

Once a long time being, a stone was found that had the most beautiful shine. The finder picked up the stone and ran into the village that he lived. The village was attached to the outskirts of a large town and the town was attached to the outskirts of a large city. He scurried along and found a stone collector. “See what I have found!” He told the collector, who was in fact in awe of the new stone. Such a rare and shiny one it was.

“We shall take it to the town! said the excited stone collector. “Why?” said the finder. “I was delighted to take it home to show my family. To set it onto the windowsill to shine in the sunlight! Like that! And we would find so much pleasure in it.”

The stone collector was shocked. “Oh no, we must, we must, or we will bust, take this stone to the village, if not sooner than later..”

And so, the finder thought for a moment, saddened a bit by the fleeting momentary pleasure which was replaced by a question ?

“Well…all right.” The finder replied.

And so, the very next day, at the break of dawn, the two were seen walking toward the village in the near but far distance.
