Once a long time ago there lived a man his name is Neogoshen. Now, Neogoshen was a man of wealth, and, power but he was always looking for more. In his life things were not what they seemed, you would think having wealth, and, power is what everyone dreams of, but there is more to it than that. When Neogoshen came home at night his house was cold, and, lonely. His gold did not gleam but sat quietly on the shelves, his art no longer looked the same as it did when he first got it. In his life something more was missing. One day Neogoshen was called to the palace to meet the emperor's sister,. She was said to be one of the most beautiful women in the city but she was lonely and often very sad. Her name was Rianchen. Rianchen had a spell placed on her at a young age that if a man will never see her for what she truly is she will die alone. Neogoshen met this beauty and fell inlove with her on sight he had never seen such beauty. Her laughter became his addiction he would do anything to hear it. Months later Rianchen and Neogoshen were married they lived a happy life for some years until a story from a distant land came to be heard by Neogoshen. The story was a treasure in a mountain in a different country it was described to have power over healing and was something amazing to cast your eyes on. "Behold" Said Neogoshen i will find this treasure and make it my own he looked at his wife Rianchen and said my love i will come back. Neogoshen looked for this treasure for months when he finally came back home his heart broken because he could not find this treasure, His wife missing him ran to him holding him in her arms. Later that night they talked Neogoshen told his wife he had to find this treasure that people talked about his wife begged and pleaded for him to stay with her and wasn't she enough didn't he love her enough to stay by her side and forget about this treasure. Neogoshen stood up in front of Rianchen and told her this treasure was more important than she was , that not even she will stand in his way for achieving happiness. Rianchen was broken hearted she walk away to her room in utter sadness. The next day Neogoshen left to find this treasure he was gone for years hunting but never finding he came home again in utter agony at his failure but this time he had no one to come hug him and kiss him on his return home, you see Rianchen died alone and in sadness because of Neogoshen's words. Neogoshen sat alone in his house that once was filled with laughter and lover now as empty as a tomb, He sat and remembered how the brightness of Rianchen's love made his dreary home look sparkling and new now it looked dark and dejected. He sat on his porch one day when a woman walked by she was old her white eyes turned on him as she saw him sitting in his despair. "Neogoshen" she called out why do you look so sad Neogoshen told her of his wife's death the woman nodded her head. She then told him this you went to hunt for a treasure that was valuable why search for something you already owned. Again this is a sad tale but it has a moral only you can take away what you got from it. THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
