One day, Humility and Honor, both female slaves, were with their Master when he encountered his old friend.
“You owe me your life after the last time. I need to call it.”
The Master frowned,”What do I have or can I do for you, Old Friend.”
The stranger replied,”Honor me.”
So The Master gave his old friend Honor.
Now Humility and Honor are two of seven siblings. They happen to be twins although not thoroughly identical. They had been inseparable, before the Old Friend. Honor was very proud and would not humble herself before the Old Friend; constantly defying him, even on whims.
“Why is she so proud?”
“Honor and Humility are two different people,” the Master replied.
“Please give me your Humility,” the Old friend said.
The Master growled,”Get your own Humility.”
