At night time I got out from home and went for walking to enjoy the weather, the sun was setting down, in every direction, there was silence and the cold weather was flowing. Look the natural scene everyone has taken its taste. The people were coming back to their homes. The birds were flying back to their nests. I was walking around my village. Every side there was happiness. I was also glad, suddenly I saw my enemy’s foot marks, the marks were fresh, and I felt that my soul got out from my body. I feared, my all happiness changed into fear, quickly I stood in my place, and my foot refused to go forward.
Darkness was rising up in my views, my body started trembling. My all happiness was finished. My heart started beating fast. I started thinking that my enemy will not attack me. I was looking here and there, I was staying here and looking for my enemy. I wanted to see where the enemy is hidden. I had no any kind of weapons. Because I got out from home with free hands. I was thinking that if the enemy attacked me, then how I will be able to save myself.
I searched for stones, but I could not find any stones. I was standing here and looking for the enemy, suddenly I saw that the enemy has hidden himself little far from me, but he also feared, and had hidden to save himself. I feared him and he feared me. He was looking me and I was looking him.
We both were waiting who will attack first. When I raised my hand, then he put up his head. When I made down my hand, then he also put down its head. When I took one step forward, then he understood that I want to attack him, he showed his tongue. When I took the second step forward, then it became emotional and started taking its tongue out and in. It was furious, fear was coming from its side. He was ready to cut me, if I went near him. I took my steps back and stood, then he also took rest. Now between us started reconciliation. I asked him why you are disturbing me by the way?
He said that why you have come in my area?
I said, it’s my area, he said it’s his area, I said, I have not come for fighting, then he said, I must not go in its side. I said, leave my area and go to the other side.
He said, change your way.
I said why you want to attack on me?
He said, I never started fighting first, certainly to save myself I took any steps.
I said, I do not want to be your enemy.
He said, then do not come near to me.
I said can we be good friends.
He said that everyone may be happy with own color.
I said then bring your hand forward.
He said, that the sound of drums is pleasant from long distance.
I said after today, I will not attack on you.
He said so do I.
I did my hand down and he did down his head, then I took one step backward, he kept his head on the earth.
I said goodbye, but there was silence from its side. I was going back, he was looking me, and he did not attack on me and did not say any bad word. I felt that he is not my enemy, but I feared that he is my enemy and he will attack on me and kill me, but I wasn’t his enemy.
He was also feared that I am its enemy. It also felt that I want to kill him. Now it is a natural process, that I am its enemy and it is mine, but I don’t want to do enmity with him and will not attack on him and I do not want to go in his area to disturb him. I want much more do friendship with him and finish forever enmity. But we couldn’t do it.
I don’t know how doing it…….
