Exploring my talent, putting it into use in the literary world for the benefit of humanity and promotion of communication
It has been a standing thing in the island that people should not love, what they allow
People to do is when you see anyone of the opposite sex that you seemly like, force yourself
On the person to become pregnant and you start living your life again. marriage is not
Valued in the island. The highest that people of opposite sex do in the island is allowing
Two people of opposite sex to co-inhabit a room or an apartment and they may through that
Give birth to children. When occasions demands for it and one of the duo sees someone else
Outside that she wants to be involved with, she or he can leave the person for that other
Person. That was how the trend has been in the island. Then a young warrior leaves his island
Because he was not happy with the way things are been ran in his island. He has walked far
In the wilderness and desert with no place to settle down at until he gets to this island, on
Getting to the island he does not wish to continue and he decides to settle on the island.
However he has settled down before he knows how things are been done in the island. He
Feels this was not right and he may have been sent into the island to restore things to the
Normal way. As a warrior, he joins the warrior of the island, and soon rise through the rank
And files because he knows the job very well, as some have tagged him to be a born warrior
For different things which he was doing among them, only people who have been begotten
Warrior according to the history of the island could do what he used to do. As he was in the
Army he soon have people who are loyal to him and who want to be like him. Because he has
Gotten to the position of authority, he carved a portion of his building to training ground
For some of those people who were loyal to him and following him. After their normal
Trainings, he will take time to share with them some things. Most often what he used to share
2face - If Love Is A Crime (lyrics)
With them is the issue of no marriage in the island, saying that such is not right in all the
Islands that he has been to, people do marry, although sometimes there could be divorce,
While some may marry more wives, but there has been marriage at those places it is by that
That one could live an exemplary lifestyle. He knows that majority people will not yield
To what he is saying, thence, he has called out few people to be talking to, who he believed
After he has implanted his principles into their hearts they will bring about the changes later.
According to the rules, anyone who loves such as to want to be settled with his or her
Partners as husbands and wives would be put to shameful death by the leaderships of the
Island. This he says needs to be eradicated and the people be in tune with the standardized
Way of living globally. Along the line a female soldier also joined his team and he was
Telling her as he was telling others alongside with the trainings what he has been exposed to
At other regions of the world that he has been to as warrior and as visitors before moving to
The island. Soon the news of the inner caucus that he has was given to the people at the
Top and they called him to discuss with him. Those people also told him that they had been
To different parts of the world and have known that such is in place, but in their island, they
Do not want such to happen, that is how the island has been for millennia and if he wishes
To continue in that way of life, they counseled him to leave their island. He can even leave
With any member of his inner caucus who is loyal to him, the leaderships would not frown
At him on that, for they have chosen that way of living and are not ready to change from
The way. He thanked them and told them that is what he will do, for you cannot be in a
System and yet be talking about the system. He said that to pacify them because he has no
Intention of leaving the island for any other islands again, nor to go and establish the
Island of his own.

I think I would establish an island of my own.
I have never heard of such a place & hope to not visit.
I believe in love that is everlasting between two.
