This girl was searching for a place.

A place where she could hide away from it all.

She found a tree. Though withered and dying, to her it was the most beautiful thing.

It was a comfort to her lonely soul... A loyal companion in her solitude.

Soon there were new friends around. The lovely birds would sing and offer the tree lullabies.

The tree spoke to her as if it was human.

and She listened to it like a friend. The tree began to grow leaves and re-gained its health.

The tree became her home..

It was not long until She became lonely. She told the tree, that It would be nice to have another person around.

The tree heard her and spoke: "Behind that hill, you will find a man. Go, and see for yourself ".

... and true enough, the tree was right.

... and She was no longer alone.tree19

Until it was his time to leave her. Dying in her arms was the saddest moment.

She was so broken hearted, that she would play the violin every night. Wallowing away with despair and swinging by the tree.

She told the tree how she wished to die as well.

The tree saw this, and spoke to her: " What can I do to ease your pain my friend?"

The girl replied: " Can I be a part of you forever? It was you who brought him to me, now he's gone, I have no reason to live anymore. I wish to give my life to you my friend, so you may bloom many years from now and may another one find shelter in your loving arms one day...

The tree waved its branches and the two became one.

The girl has become the tree.

Years went by...

The tree flourished and blossomed.mantree10

 

Not many of them remembered, how special the tree was once to the man, who brought them to this special place. Most of them became greedy and ungrateful.

The tree saw this, and it was disheartened.

The Tree began to wither. Slowly changing its form.

A darker form.

The tree tree spoke with its loudest voice:

" You fools! I have given you everything. I gave you shelter and I gave you life!

Now this? After all that I have done for you!!!

Displeased by their ungrateful behavior. It became furious and angry, its branches began strangling  all of them.
