Sorrowly to see the family breaking slowly by slowly they could explain what was happening it goes like that to a erlant for brothers to start hating themselves.One day petro went out for a job but it appears to something strange that no one believes petro was a like a beast who have just come out of the forest within a week his granddaughter becomes crazy and scream about people to leave him and she also sees the grandfather. Year later it turns to James where they fought about nothing he just come from nowhere and doing dusty things to the family,their parents tried to stop petro from making everyone to leave the house and went away,my dad deport to Mombasa the others where they can find a peace of mind.Only petro was the remained in the whole family and lived till death he took everything belongs to the brothers no one asked him anything he asked them they had bought a land where he will and thats what we have in our home.Being home with our family annoys him but we believe he will manage to live with us.
