There was a kid that was given a watch. The next morning, the watch had dissapeared. The kid's parents had hidden it from him, so he would learn how it feels to lose things. But the kid never recovered from that sudden lost watch, and walked his life forever with a sad, melancholic walk. Why the watch had suddenly been taken away from him, the same way it was suddenly given to him? Why everything in life ended up being so similar to the misterious watch? And the kid's parents always wondered whether they had been too cruel with him.
(just had this idea while i was watching tv... you decide if there's any meaning there, i mean in the tale)
