It was snowing. It was quiet and peaceful. The fluffy snowflakes slowly circled in a captivating dance, slowly falling to the ground.
Two snowflakes flying closely to each other began to strike up a conversation. To avoid drifting away from each other, they grabbed on to each other as the floated through the sky. One of the snowflakes said cheerfully:
Snowflake 1 – ’Flying is such an incredible feeling!’
Snowflake 2 – ’We’re not flying, we’re just falling downwards’, replied the second snowflake.
Snowflake 1 – ’Soon we’ll reach with the ground and turn into part of that fluffy white blanket!’
Snowflake 2 – ’No, we’re going to meet our death; we’re going to get trampled on eventually too when we reach the ground.’
Snowflake 1 – ’We will then become part of a stream moving out to sea when the spring time arrives. We will live forever!’ shouted the first snowflake.
Snowflake 2 – ’No, our fate is sealed, we will melt and disappear forever at that point’.
Eventually, they got tired of arguing.
They let go of each other’s hands, and flew down towards their different fates that they had actually chosen for themselves.
