Chapter 1.

The old man

"I wake up, I go to school, I go home, I eat, I go to sleep, repeat. Is this all that there is to life?" Asked Rod.

You see, Rod could never accept he was fated to live like a sheep, by the laws of society. He wants more. More what? I don't know myself...

And so instead of going to school, he packed up a bag with water and food, and set out to nature, the wilderness, and the truth.

On his way he found an old man.

"Old man, what have you done with your life? Are you happy with it?"

The old man looked at him and smiled: "So many questions, for such a nice day".

"Old man, I want to find the meaning of life, the answer. This couldn't be all that there is to life".

The old man smiled again: "You're too young to understand anything at your age. Come back to me when you're twenty, and I shall teach you the truth"

Maybe it's not a big deal, but the thing an author wants most is to have his/her work appreciated. So I thank you!

Meh, it's no big deal. I serious. It was good. The writing wasn't all that challenging, but the idea and concept is very complex, and I love it.
