James was in the bathroom, brushing his teeth before going to bed. Then he saw some chocolate on the table. He gulped it. After he ate it, he watched a movie and went to sleep. Next morning, he woke up due to the alarm clock's noise interfering with his wild dreams.


He went into the bathroom, brushed his teeth, bathed and went to the dining room. As he was walking down the staircase, a loud scream was heard. James rushed down to the dining room to see what had happened. His brother, Tony was yelling that his chocolate had disappeared overnight. James then said "Oops, I ate it. ", truly feeling very guilty. Tony looked horrified and then yelled " IT IS CIVIL WAR !!!. "


James wondered what his brother Tony would do. As he stepped out, he found out. As soon as James stepped out, he slipped on the skateboard Tony had set and fell down and hit his head on the door knob. James thought that if this was civil war then so be it. He laid out a banana peel in the passage and as he had thought, Tony came running towards the bathroom and slipped on the banana peel and fell. Tony was angry and took revenge the very evening by putting slime in James' boots as he went out to play. At school,the civil war raged on as Tony and James would harass each other by putting the wrong books in the backpack and pulling pranks on each other like hiding each others sports shoes and putting vinegar in their water bottles.


Then the pranks at home continued to escalate as both the brothers adjusted each others alarm clocks to a much later timing and then the main incident happened that changed the war.


Their sister,Tina had come to meet the brothers. They hated her because she always bossed around. As soon as the brothers heard that she was arriving, they set their differences aside and together the brothers made her vacation the worst ever. They set traps like hiding her toothpaste, hiding her toys and the prank which worked the most was painting her face with her own makeup kit while she was asleep. Their mother, who arrived from a weeks conference, noticed these pranks and she put an end to it and to James' and Tony's utter surprise they found that Tina was quite friendly and played with them. And the brothers never had such a violent civil war, and thus the civil war ended. Or did it?
