Hamid and Rema had been neighbors and friends since as long as they could remember. When they were younger they used to spend all day running around their street causing cute little childish havoc. Their parents never minded this friendship of theirs; rather Rema’s parents thought that with a friend like Hamid at her side Rema would always stay out of danger. As for Hamid’s parents they knew both Rema and Hamid were good little kids and would never do anything wrong, plus both of them were already like brother and sister and nothing more. In a few years both of them got older and mature, however their friendship never changed, nor did their parents opinion of each child.
Then entered the disgrace worthy and disgusting eye users. These were people whose brains were never active while their eyes become their main beacon of thought. These disgusting creatures who I would be ashamed to call human had many features which could truly be hated. They were always very ignorant and would never be able to take any negative comment, yet on the other hand giving out negative comments was like their precious gift to the world. They always thought that their opinion was the correct opinion, yet when it came to the point of providing evidence, all they would ever be able to say is that they saw whatever they claimed and if proven wrong would always use force rather intelligence to get their way.
These dreadful little monsters had caught wind about the friendship of Hamid and Rema and obviously they started to chatter, which resulted in the creation of many disgusting little rumors which were even far more disgusting then these people. Most of the time rumors are considered to be harmless as we know that whatever has been gossiped has only been created for the pleasure of gossipers. This too was like that at first, only harmless little lies spread by harmless little minded people, but as more rumors spread the truth got dimmer and dimmer and soon everyone in their neighborhood were blinded with false stories about Rema and Hamid.
One fine afternoon, Rema and Hamid went to eat some ice-cream after school, but there was no ice cream man on the street of their school. Rema remembered there was an ice-cream parlor about three streets away which served some of her most favorite flavors. They decided to go there and enjoy their favorite ice creams in the company of one another. The two innocent little beings walked together like normal friends would, but viewers didn’t see them as friends at all. This was the time when the eye users were to become harmless, a lady who lived on their street spotted them and started exclaiming the most disgusting pieces of gossipy literature about them to the people that surrounded her. She thought she was only gossiping and was totally harmless but little did she know the people with whom she was sharing this false knowledge were not people of intelligence, just one word out of her mouth and she could have provoked these people to do things really disgraceful because just like her these people did not use their minds before performing any actions, and provoke them she did. Just the mere sentence “he’s probably running away with her” brought anger to these peoples’ minds. As she was an old lady she was already considered wise and truthful even though in her life she had told many unimaginable lies then she had told honest truths, yet just like all old men and women she was believed to be truthful because her age was not at a point where one should lie as they are already standing atop their grave and each day for such men and women is a gift. So because of such a belief in her words this mere little sentence made anger rush into their blood and they were blinded of all thought.
Hamid and Rema were then both surrounded by these people and ridiculed for an act they did not even intend to commit, suddenly out of nowhere they started showering both the friends with pebbles wounding both of them badly, and because violence had already been unleashed it wasn’t long before they ran out of pebbles and started using their hands or whatever they could find. The actions that followed were too barbaric.
Hamid and Rema were killed, only because they craved for some ice-cream, and went out in the open ignoring the eyes which could lead to danger. They were killed because most of the men and women of the world forgot how to think and only believed what was fed into their minds and whatever was fed led to their unimaginable actions.
We have come to a point where we are ready to believe all that we see or are told without any thought or investigation even if Hamid and Rema were indulging in the beautiful yet forbidden act of love was it right for people to perform such actions? Couldn’t people just inform both their parents about these acts, and better yet couldn’t they have just confirmed with any one of the two as to where they were headed and what they saw each other as?
All we know now is that friendship died in the result of ignorance..
