In one small place in an isolated part of the world, there was a tiny town surrounded by trees. This was the birthplace of Love, the oldest person on the planet if not the universe. Few would see her with a glance; even fewer would talk to her, too nervous to approach the oldest being. There were some who chased after her, hoping to catch the most beautiful thing in the world (even going as far as sprouting love poems). Her house rests on a hill, looking over the village with care and passion.
One day, she decided to come to the town, greet a few people here and there, maybe even set off her Love-radar over there.
A man came to her, his face unshaven and dirty but Love showed no disgust. It wasn't in her blood. Instead, she smiled and the man scowled.
"I hate you."
She remained smiling with soft eyes.
"I love you too."
The man 'umph'ed before going on his way, a matted black dog lagging behind him, his eyes occasionally fleeting over his shoulder to gaze at Love but glared when she smiled. He growled and shouted profanities at anyone who dared to approach him at his spot outside the Emotions Café.
"Who was that? I never saw him around before."
Love smiled and looked down to the little boy and his twin sister; Curious and Bashful. The two twins who always goes hand in hand - literally and figuratively - and stick together everywhere they go. Curious always helped his sister to get through tough times and Bashful encourages her other half to go on out and enjoy himself.
"His name is Hate." Love sighed and looked back to the man. He was served a cup of coffee but scared away Tense, the waiter, with a shout and a swing of a rolled up newspaper. Love chuckled at the sight and only smiled when Brave, the owner of the café, shouted something that riled Hate up and a dog near him growled in response. "He is new here. The dog sitting next to him is Anger and always follows him around. Do try not to make him too mad, okay?"
"Okay." Curious piped up with a smile and his sister followed soon after. "Okay."
Love waved as the twins skipped down the road, away from the café, hand in hand.
Ah, Love is Curious and Bashful. Love can sometimes be Tense but is Brave when the time comes, such as standing up to Hate and Anger. Love is everything and is one being.
