[Story] The Need To Believe

An old man of sixty, poor and without stability in life, clings onto the treasures he has inherited; treasures he has spent his entire life trying to sell. Though he is poor, he knows the treasures will bring him to a comfortable life; he can taste it. With conviction, with hope and happiness he waits.

But death does no man favours; it is written.

His treasures, his so called inheritance, had been identified as fakes. Yet his need to believe was so strong that it kept him alive, allowed him to keep walking, until his written end.
