Sorry for not writing that much again. From now on, I will write everyday (except for this week, because I am busy).
In Toronto, there was a house. And in that house, there lived a family. The father and mother went out for shopping, while the two twelve-year old kids stayed at home.
“Marvin, there is a snow storm now. I will be late.” My mom said in the phone. I turned off the phone and shouted, “Kevin, mom and dad are stuck in the snow storm and will come back late.” No answer. I repeated the same sentence again, but still, there wasn’t any answer. I went to check the rooms.
Then I saw my brother, coming out from the washroom. I repeated the message to him, and he just nodded. So since he understood what i was saying, I went to the study room to try out the new game that our parents bought for us on our birthday. I was about to sit on the chair when a hand went in front of me and stopped me. I turned around, and it was my brother.
I said, “What are you doing?”
“I am playing this game.”
“No, I am playing this game.” I punched his in the shoulder. And that was how our fight started.
We fought for around 15 minutes, and our conflict still hasn’t ended yet. I threw a punch, and it hit his nose. His nose suddenly went flat from the impact of my punch, and it started bleeding. The room started to become a horrible sight. My brother’s blood was leaking everywhere, mixed with my blood when he first bit my arm. Ow! I dodged his punch, but then he locked my neck with his other arm.
“No!” I screamed. But that didn’t stop him from squeezing my neck. I could feel myself breathing harder and faster from the lack of air. But he was squeezing so tight that no matter how I tried to breathe, it didn’t help.
After a minute, I felt super dizzy and my vision was clouded with stars surrounding my eyesight. I knew that I was going to die if I wasn’t going to do something soon. I tried multiple times to make my brother release his grip, but he was too strong. I felt a force trying to kill me, but another mental thought that kept on telling me, “Don’t give up! Don’t give up!”
But the blackness was expanding, and I knew that it was my sign of death. “I love my parents, and goodbye.” Then, the door opened, and in came my parents. “Stop!” My mom said. My dad separated us, and I passed out.
When I woke up, my mom said, “Oh my gosh, Marvin. Are you all right?” I replied with a nod. My parents brought me food and I felt myself getting better.
The next day, my parents talked to us, first punishing us about what we did was really dangerous, then they gave us a solution, “Why don’t you two just compromise?” My dad said, “For example, one of you can play the game for 1 day, and the other one will play it for the other day.” I thought that this was a really good way to solve our problem. Why did not we thought of that way first?
The message of this story is to give a message that some conflicts could have been solved with compromises. For example, in the third crusade, Richard and Saladin could have compromised first instead of fighting each other.
