There are seven ancient trees, their roots digging and expanding deep into the earth for thousands of years. It was said that these special trees were originally small seeds that came from outer space. For them to break out of their shells and grow, they needed to form a bond with a human.
Only humans of pure and strong will to live, survive and prosper could get the strength of the tree and in turn, the tree would feed off their strong desires.
A child born into any of these human families would be blessed with a name from the tree. Those children’s fates are sealed, but to live by the tree’s teachings, is to live a guaranteed lifetime of success and wealth.
This is a story about two brothers born into one of those inveterate families.
