Greedy Boy

There lived a twin brother called Sam and Tom! They are identical twins where even the mother of the twin boys found it too hard to differentiate between the two during the initial months of birth. However, they are like two poles when it comes to everything other than their appearance. They neither agree with anything nor do they share even one single trait!

Sam has no friends, whereas for Tom the world is friendship. Sam loves sweets and Tom loves to eat spicy foods. Sam is mommy’s pet and Tom is daddy’s pet. While Sam is generous, Tom is greedy!

As they grew up, the father of twin boys wanted to share his fortune equally. However, Tom did not agree and he argued that whoever is more intelligent and strong, will gain higher share of wealth than other.

Sam agreed. Their father decided to organize a competition between the two. And they ordered the two sons to walk as long as they can in and they should return home before the sunset. Whoever covers the longer distance and returns home before sunset will offered wealth huge amount of wealth proportionate to the distance they covered. They don’t carry watch to calculate time.

Both started to walk a long way during a sunny day. Sam walked slowly and steadily, while Tom urged to win over Sam started to run instantly.

The distance they cover until mid-noon will be equal to the distance they would reach home before sunset. It was mid-noon and Sam decided to return back as he could reach home on time.

However, Tom, with yearn to earn more wealth, did not turned his way back home even after mid-noon. He walked two times longer distance that what Sam was covered and decided to return back as the evening falls. He urged to return home as the Sun turned orange in the evening. Unfortunately, he could not even make half way to home and the moon rises.

He lost the race and was defeated by his greediness!
