Once upon a time, there was a man who lived at the end of the street with his cats. His name is Tim. He lived alone for ten years ever since his parents died when he was only 7 months old. Back then, he lived with his uncle until he decided to move out at the age of 20 to find something he sought for years; inner peace.
He has been growing crops. He didn't have everything, but everything was enough for him. He eats from what his hands had planted, from what his crops had produced. He sleeps with his cats. Sometimes he feeds his cats with his hand, hugged them and cared for them like nothing else matters. As if he has already found the diamonds of his hearts. He found his inner peace. This, is his inner peace. He thought he lived happily. But not for long.
One evening, he went into the forest to get his things as he always does. Then he stumbled upon an injured baby bear with blood and wounds around its neck. And so he made his decision to bring home that bear to take care of it since it was alone for quite sometimes in the forest.
Later, that baby bear cried forever in the middle of the night. And to his surprise, the mother of that poor baby bear came. She broke his door with her mighty force and attacked Tim. Tim's cats rushed to protect him but all of them died in the great battle. He lost them all in a blink of an eye. In the aftermath, the mother bear took her baby and went out of his house and tried to run back into the forest.
Tim broke his left leg and he has a lot of bear bites around his body. He knew he has nothing left for him. Everything was ruined. Fueled with rage and anger, Tim took his gun and went after the bears with his broken leg. His blood trailed along his way.
He saw the bears not far from him. It took him a moment. He took a deep breath. Probably the last one. Tear drops from his eyes. BAM! The bears fell down. The bullet went through its heart. It screamed in pain. And eventually gone in the middle of the night.
Tim's rage fades slowly. His body fell down. He has no more energy left. Blood keeps coming out of his wounds. And he knew his time has arrived. The night ended with the moon witnessing his last breath. Was it courage or was it hatred?
This is the tale of Tim; the man who sought inner peace gave up on everything.
