Emotions and Feelings, all lived together on a sunny island out in the beautiful ocean. There were times when they disagreed with each other and got into arguments, but for the most part there was peace and quiet on the island.
One day, without any warning, dark clouds gathered above. A powerful gust of wind brought the rain and storm rushing over the little island, threatening to drown it. All the Feelings were scared.
Hope called out to Faith, and the two of them asked Courage to touch each of the Feelings. Love set to work and in no time had a boat ready to carry them all to safety. All the Feelings jumped into the boat but one of them refused to get in. Love got off to check who it was, and found Ego there.
Love tried very hard to convince Ego to get into the boat before it was too late, but Ego refused to move. Everyone urged Love to leave Ego alone. That was not easy. You see Love was created to love, and so stayed back with Ego. All the Feelings escaped to safety. Love died because of Ego.
