A TALE OF TWO BOYS
Aye hated the people his leaders told him had killed thousands of his people and turned his will over to men vowed to take revenge. So did Bea.
Aye was trained to load explosives on his vehicle and explode them in the middle of the targets his leaders assigned him. So did Bea.
Bea’s target was a café in his hometown where Aye’s people were said to be. His vehicle was his body. He died being torn into more pieces than the others who died that day. Such was his passion for avenging the death of his entire family the day before.
Aye’s target was the general area where Bea’s people were said to be. His vehicle was a tank. He watched entire blocks explode from the isolation of his armor and lived to see those people and more dying for the rest of his life. Such was his passion for avenging the death of his friends in ambush the day before,
Which came first, the terrorist, or the terrorist?
