Once upon a time, three animals—a man, a pig, and a dog—were the only ones to survive a terrifying shipwreck. They only had each other for company after washing up on a desolate desert island distant from civilisation.
They came together as an unusual trio in their struggle for survival. Weeks passed into days, and they began to call the island their home. Even though they didn’t get along, they had developed a daily ritual of going to the beach every evening to watch the sun set.
One night in particular, the sky was ablaze with reddish tones, and delicate cirrus clouds produced a beautiful image. Though romance appeared unthinkable on this desolate island, the warm, calm breeze made it the ideal night for it. But as time passed, even the most improbable situations started to appear plausible.
Feeling the magic of the evening, the guy was strangely pulled to the pig, who had grown to be a good friend over their time on the island. He daringly threw his arm around the pig as he rolled toward it. It was a vulnerable time when the boundaries between friendship and solitude were obscured by the beauty of nature.
The dog was not happy with this unexpected intimacy; perhaps he was envious or just trying to preserve his territory. Making it quite apparent that such advances were not acceptable, he hissed menacingly at the man. The man instantly withdrew his arm as he seemed bashful and slightly embarrassed, and the group proceeded to watch the sunset together despite no longer making any additional attempts at hugging.
Weeks went by, and just when it appeared that their lives had fallen into an oddly harmonious rhythm, fate struck again. Another shipwreck occurred, but this time a stunning young woman was the lone survivor. When they discovered her, she was in a dreadful state, battered and scarred by the ocean’s fury.
With what little they had available, they nursed her back to health in an effort to repay the compassion of her rescuers. She eventually recovered completely and learned about the guy, the pig, and the dog’s nightly habit of gathering on the beach to watch the breathtaking sunsets.
Another of those magical evenings arrived as the days turned into weeks and their connection with the young woman grew. The sky was once more a crimson painting, and the breeze was soft and comforting. The man couldn’t help but think of romance as his emotions began to flare.
He mustered up the confidence to approach the young lady and trembled, “Um… would you mind taking the dog for a walk?”
The guy, the pig, and the dog were all members of this strange family on the island, and the young woman was amused as she observed them. She said, “Well, I suppose I can do that,” and laughed warmly. After all, the weather is perfect for a stroll. She then took the dog by the leash and left the man, the pig, and the beautiful sunset to fend for themselves.
In the end, it was a tale of friendship and the yearning for connection that exists in all human beings, even in the most absurd and funny situations. Even though the sunsets on that desert island remained a nightly habit, the guy discovered that there are some boundaries that should never be crossed.
