“Spit on me”. I couldn't dare to do that even while I was mouthful of saliva at then. Underneath there was written, “A biggest sinner of all time”. However, the tomb had a beautiful rose bouquet lying on its basement. All these was intriguing me. I wondered if it was the humbleness of the heroic...
