Sam agreed their father decided to organize a competition between the two he asked the two sons to walk as long as they could. and return home before sunset.
the following day sam and tom set out to walk it was a rather sunny day sam walk slowly and steady while tom broke into a sprint as he was bent on winning the race and also winning a greater portion of his father wealth
however tom, with his greedy to earn more wealth did not attempt to return home even after mid-noon he walked twice as long as sam and thought he would still be able to return home before sunset. he hurried back when he saw the sun turn orange unfortunately he could not even make it half way home as the sun started to set slowly darkness engulfed his path and he had to drag his tired feet back home.
