There once were two men. No one knew who they were.
Their names were Jimmy and Strum.
Jimmy approached Strum in the scorching desert sun. "Hello traveler, I see that you are in desperate need of some water." Jimmy said with a wise cracked smile on his face.
Strum felt that he could do anything himself, and was quite cocky and reserved. "No you dumbshit, I can do anything myself, I don't need your dirty water."
Jimmy looked at Strum with a quizzical look. He was quite confused as to why this man in front of him was being such a dickhead.
"Is something wrong?" Jimmy asked in a caring tone.
"Fuck off, I don't want to talk to you." Strum said in the same rude manner as before.
Jimmy put his hand on Strum's shoulder, and at first Strum flinched, but then he started crying.
"Tell me what's wrong sonny." Jimmy said with the same gentle caring tone as before.
"I have no place to live, I have no money, and I have no wife." Strum said while balling his eyes out, he tried to calm down but it didn't help.
"Oh son, those don't matter. Come with me and I will show you the ways of the world. I will make you into a king. You will be loved and revered by most everyone, but you will also be despised and your image will be burned." Jimmy said in a menacing authoritative tone.
"What do you mean?" The innocent young Strum questioned. He had wiped most of his tears away and was more curious than he was sad.
Jimmy stretched out his hand towards Strum and said, "Come with me and I will make you become the thing that you have always dreamed of. Do you accept my proposal? I will only ask you once."
Strum was conflicted. He wanted to have a wife to love, a shelter to reside in and enough money to survive, but the things this man was offering were too good to be true. He decided that anything would be better than his current situation.
"Ok, I will go with you, under one condition." Strum said while holding his index finger up.
"Yes, what is it?" Old man jimmy said.
"You must find a woman for me." Strum said with a smirk on his young shimmering face.
"You will have all the women that you can choose from when I have succeeded." Jimmy said, returning the warm smile to Strum.
"Alright then, let's go." Strum said happily.
Jimmy started walking through the desert and Strum followed. This is where their long journey began and no one knew what was in store for their futures, only time may tell....
