Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived, Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of others including Love. However, one day it was announced to the couples that the island would sink. So all prepared their boats and left. Love was the only one who stayed.
Love wanted to stay until it started sinking. When Love was almost sinking, it decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a beautiful boat. Love said, "Richness, can you take me with you?"
Richness answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."
Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by, "Vanity, please help me!"
"I can't help you Love. You are all wet and can probably damage my boat," Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, "Sadness, let me go with you." "Oh...Love, I am so sad that I prefer to go alone!"
Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not listen when Love called her!
Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come Love, I will take you." It was an elderly. Love became very happy that it even forgot to ask the name of the elderly.
When they arrived to the other side, Love asked Knowledge, “Who was that elderly?”
"It was Time."
"Time? But why did Time help me?"
"Because only Time is capable of understanding such a great Love."
