#1 The Brothers

The brothers had never seen eye to eye. As they entered their fifties, they resolved to overcome their differences. After several failed attempts to socialise together they realised their interests were too disparate. In desperation, the older said
“Do you still love planes”
“Yes”
So they built one.
Together.
It took four years. They spent time together, overcame their differences and discovered the love between them they had hoped was there.
The day of the maiden voyage came.
“How do we decide who gets to fly her first?”
Asked the younger.
Silently, the older smiled and merely said
“Thank you”
As he slid the knife between the youngers ribs.
