“Once upon a time-”

“You’re really starting the story with that?” my friend asks.

“Yeah, why not?”

“Don’t you think it’s a bit… Cliche?”

I sigh. “There is a story of a man who was seen as a hero among his people. How about that?”


“Alright, so this man was called Isaac the Great. He was the prince of his kingdom as well as the military general. He fought in several wars, held many scars and even fell in love with the most beautiful princess. Everyone loved him. Then one night, something unexpected happened. He was travelling down a cliffside road in his carriage when something spooked the horses. The carriage then fell over the cliff and Isaac plummeted to his death.”

“I mean with a name like that he kind of deserved it.”

“Really? That’s you’re issue with my story?”

“What can I say? I have some taste.”
