On Tuesdays there's a street fair wherein people from the mountains sell pebbles. These pebbles are rumored to cause prosperity and never ending happiness. They cost how much, one will ask, and the people from the mountain will point to their chest, where the heart is. "My heart for a pebble?" someone will say. The people from the mountains will nod. "It's not for you, it's for people you love," the mountain people will say. Most will walk away shaking their heads. A few number of small children think about making the purchase, and some end up closing the deal.
