Amidst the silence that enveloped him, a single beacon of solace shone through—the marionette doll. This peculiar companion had entered his life as a gift from destiny, a token of gratitude from an old man he'd aided on a dusty road. Alex longed to visit the old man once more, but rumors whispered through the neighborhood that the elderly soul had gone, a euphemism for finding eternal peace beside his beloved youngest son. Alex, too young to comprehend the concept of mortality, assumed the old man had merely changed his dwelling.
So, the marionette doll became his steadfast friend, a loyal confidant through the passage of time. Alex, in the innocence of youth, often indulged in daydreams where his marionette friend transformed into a brother, a companion to share laughter and secrets. His giggles echoed in the corners of his heart.
Yet, fate is a weaver of intricate destinies, and one day, as swiftly as a wisp of wind, the marionette vanished from his life. Desolation wrapped its cold arms around Alex's heart as he searched in vain for his cherished friend.
It was then, for the first time, that his parents bore witness to the depths of their son's anguish. Determined to mend the fractures in his soul, they devised a plan to bring joy back into his life. With great anticipation, they presented Alex with a tiny bundle—a living embodiment of his childhood yearning—a baby brother.
Ecstasy painted Alex's face as he cradled the newborn in his arms. His wish had been granted, and the enchantment of brotherhood eclipsed his sorrow. The years unfolded, carrying the golden boy into adolescence, and he forged new friendships, weaving the tapestry of life.
In the relentless pursuit of his own dreams and aspirations, Alex inadvertently cast a shadow upon his younger brother, neglecting the bond they shared. Time, like the river's currents, flowed with indifference.
It was a moment of reckoning that shook Alex to his core. The day he rediscovered his marionette doll, buried beneath the layers of time, he was flooded with memories of his younger brother. The realization struck like a bolt of lightning, and he raced home, eager to atone for his past transgressions.
But when he crossed the threshold of his family's abode, his voice trembled as he inquired about his brother. Confusion painted the faces of the maids and his parents, who asked if he were unwell, his words an enigma to them. In their world, he had never possessed a brother, for the reality he had conjured had never existed.
In that poignant moment, the crushing consequences of his actions became clear. The threads of destiny, once tangled, could not easily be untangled. And as the truth washed over him, Alex could only watch in silent agony as the echoes of his past resounded, forever shaping the story of his life.
