The sun set. It’s rays glistened on the road. Two young boys Den and Riky played football wiling away another wonderful day of childhood. They dreamed of playing in the big footballing leagues and spoke of national and international players while they kicked the ball around.
As night began to fall Den began to move off feeling guilty that he couldn’t ask Riky to his home for tea. His mother and father were quite old-school and hated his friendship with an Atheist. They believed Catholic was the only way and were in uproar when it was abolished as the state religion in 2009. He knew things were changing.
