The purpose of life

What is life? Life is the condition that distinguishes us from inorganic matter. Our ability to grow and reproduce allows us to multiply in numbers but I wonder if there is any other purpose to it than to simply spawn.

An unlikely dream

My bag will be packed and the bus ticket will be in the bottom of the bag. It will be difficult for me to take it out and I will not know my seat number. I will just take a random seat in the bus. The bus will be timed to leave at 12 in the afternoon. I will play a random song on my mobile and plug my worn out earphones into my ears. My ears will relish the melodic songs, and looking out through the window, my eyes will see life moving to a rhythm. The song will remind me of my parents who were gone when their child was only nine. I will close my eyes and reminisce.

Be good, do good

There was a school named Animus far away in the forest of Pandora. The school was established by Lord Kelvin who had managed to seal the gateway from their arch-enemy, the Goblins. Many years after Lord Kelvin’s death, three students of the school, Stan, Baeki and Alex, found a secret entrance to the hidden room of Kelvin. There they discovered a ring, a book and a pair of magical shoes. By placing the ring on the book, they accidentally opened the gateway and were transported to the realm of the Goblins. For a few days, they were able to stay safe undetected.
