Predestinated hostility, predestinated encounter
Recently watched a cartoon called “wolf and sheep”, it’s about two hostile species establishing true friendship. No matter how disagree from the sheep family, or how disdainful objection from the wolf family, wolf Gabel and Sheep Mei just ran away from their home town, stayed in a jungle, watching moon light every night, and forever.
Have to say, wolf and sheep were much luckier than Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet from two hostile families, also predestinated encounter, love lead them to their path, they felt in love, but could not last forever. Juliet was going to fool everyone by pretending death, after that she could fly away with Romeo to have a new life, where no fighting, no combat at all. However Romeo thought his beloved was dead, so he ended his life by his sword in front of her coffin. And when Juliet woke up from the potion, what she saw is Romeo’s corpse, so she ended her live by Romeo’s sword, following her lover to another world.
Yes, all coincident caused this poor couple could not be together forever in the earth; but their immortal love just lasts for several centuries as classic. Is it only when our mortal fresh faded, then our fragile love could flare as stars? Is it mortal human being, have to accept the flowery love wearing away in drops as time goes by?
When people trade off love for money, fame, power, someone sacrifices live for love, should it be worshipful? Or it is pathetic? Eventually, love just a luxury, very few people could afford it, most people only could choose the commodity. Hopefully, Cupid will not be unemployed in the future…
