Kayd Layd and Jake Lake are competitive twin brothers.
As toddlers they’d broken both arms racing to the top of an oak tree. As teens, they went to two different highschools so that they could compete against each other in their local Wrestling League.
“Those two,” their family would say. “Those two are always trying to prove who’s best.” But they loved each other, in their own odd way, and their family knew it.
When the brothers were in their late 30s, tragedy struck.
Both Mom and Dad died in a freak home explosion, leaving the Moore family bricklaying business to the two brothers. Both brothers, distraught over the passing of their parents, and ever so competitive, wanted full ownership of the company, as they didn’t think the other could handle the huge responsibility of running a business.
Of course, the only solution was a competition.
Each brother decided to build a brick wall for the next 8 hours. The person with the most bricks in their wall would win the competition, and therefore ownership of the business.
When 8 hours were over, the brothers invited the whole town to see who had laid the most bricks. A lucky resident was chosen by each brother to count the bricks. The winner was obvious.
