Twenty years he spent on this mountain top. In a ramshackle house with a run down barn.

Today was the day he was leaving. He couldn’t take it anymore. Living like this, barely eating, hardly surviving.

Twenty years must be enough for people to forget.  He had been young, foolish, quick-tempered. Now he was tired and worn down.

For days he walked till he came upon the town. Two men approached him. He felt no fear as they blocked his way.

“We heard you were back old man.”

He just stared at a younger version of himself.

“Come along. Ma’s been waiting long enough.”
