Twelve Days by Toonikun Twelve Days by Toonikun
Long cheesy shitty story ahead skip if you hate reading and sorry if i caused anyone to OD on cheesy or vomit blood m(_ _)m

There was a boy who lived with his younger brother. His brother was a frail child and often gets sick easily and on his tenth birthday he was in his worst state. The doctors told him that his brother could only live on for 12 days. The boy loved his brother so much that he was willing to sell the cow and wagon they owned so that he could afford the medical fees, but in the end nothing could be done to save the boy's brother.

The brother however accepted the fate that he will die and requested that he want to spend his last Christmas with his brother. But sadly Christmas is on the 13th day. Desperate to fulfill his brother's wish, the boy went to the village witchdoctor to seek help.

The Witchdoctor in the village then told the boy if he was brave enough to venture into the deep forrest he might be able to find a special kind of flower that blooms every night, and the flower could stop a body from aging for 1 day, but to get the flower he must pay a price.

On the second day the boy went into the forests to look for that flower, After 2 days he came across a cave with many weird looking statues around it, and inside the cave was a big stone clock with flowers blooming on the walls. The boy who was sure that he had found the flower plucked a handful of them to bring back to his brother.

As the boy was about to leave the cave he was stopped by a barrier surrounding the entrance, and the guardian of the cave appeared in front of him. The guardian said that he had trespassed a forbidden realm that was only allowed for deities and he needs to pay the price for stealing the flowers.

Scared but determined the boy begged for mercy and made a deal to the guardian that he would come back on the day after christmas to accept his punishment as long as he was able to celebrate christmas with his brother. Suprisingly, the guardian swiftly agreed.

So in the end the boy went back to his home and indeed his brother made it through the 12th day and they celebrated christmas together, and on the 13th day his brother passed away.

The next day the boy went back to the cave to accept his punishment, the guardian then told him that he was to be turned into a statue to live in misery everyday, but since the guardian was moved by the boy's kind heart towards the brother he cast a sleeping spell on the boy and planted a seed in him. And when the time comes for the flower to bloom within him he will be ascended into heaven to reunite with his brother.

1000 years past and what was left of the boy is a smiling statue covered with flowers that he has once used to save his brother.
