The Dog and the Boy

The dog had seen it all. Sticks. And chains. And guns. And sticks again. He had felt them too.

The boy had seen it all. Beatings. And tears. And scars. And beatings again. He had felt them too.

When the dog saw the boy, he could have seen a cruel creature, standing on two legs, ready to strike.

When the boy saw the dog, he could have seen a cruel creature, standing on four legs, ready to strike.

But neither of them did.
They saw another lost being. Another lost soul.

And so the dog and the boy became friends. And they weren’t beaten and they weren’t chained anymore. Because now they were two and two are stronger than one.
