"Two Friends" by Guy De Maupassant Free Audio & eText
For all those that know, Guy De Maupassant was a wonderfully gifted short story writer. "Two Friends" is no different. This simple story of two friends, who enjoyed fishing together before the war, ask for and receive permission to fish once again at their favorite place within earshot of the Prussian guns. They soon find themselves in enemy hands, and are given a chance to go free if one or the other would betray both their homeland and their friend by giving up the password to the Prussian commander. Will they? Or, which one will betray their friendship to live?
