Full Moon Day

(2 minutes read)

“Hey brother, today is half-moon day!” said Mark, running towards his elder brother Steve.

Steve: So what?
Mark: Don’t you remember about that dark castle which we can see only during half-moon days?
Steve: Yes, I do
Mark: We are going there tonight to see what is hidden in that castle

Mark and Steve are brothers, living in a drought village with their mother. Their village doesn’t have anything except poverty.

Both the brothers went to their mother and said about their night plan.

Mark: Mom, Steve and I are going to the castle tonight
Mom: No, I cannot lose you both like your father. Your father went to that castle 2 years back and didn’t come back till now. Same is the story with 60 people from this village. We don’t know what is there inside. You both shouldn’t go.
Steve: OK Mom. We both will not go

After ensuring that their mother had slept, Mark woke up Steve and said him that he was going alone to the castle. But Steve didn’t allow him to go there alone and accompanied him. Both reached the castle. The castle was shining in the light of half-moon like below.

Both entered the castle and saw tons and tons of gold and diamonds everywhere. Mark and Steve were awestruck on seeing those ornaments.

Mark: (whispered on Steve’s ear) We should take all these ornaments, leave to the city and settle well with our mom

Once Mark finished speaking to Steve, a black cage captured Mark and took him to the tower. Steve was shocked and ran towards the cage, but cage went very fast and disappeared.

Steve shouted loudly, “I don’t want these ornaments, I came for my father and now for my brother. Please leave them”

One mysterious voice came from the tower, “I will leave your father and brother along with these ornaments. Will you go out of the village and stay with your family happily?”

Steve: NO, I HAVE SEEN MY VILLAGE PEOPLE’S STRUGGLE. I WILL HELP THEM HAPPILY

Next minute, the disappeared villagers along with Mark and his father who were captured and kept in the tower were released.

And the mysterious voice said, “I WAS WAITING FOR SUCH A GENUINE PERSON THESE MANY YEARS. FROM NOW ON YOUR LIVES WILL BE BRIGHTENED UP LIKE FULL MOON DAYS. SAVE THE VILLAGE”
