Romulus and Remus

“We’ll build the first subdivision over there,” Romulus said, indicating the Palatine Hill.
     “It’d be better over there,” Remus suggested. He’d always liked the way the morning light illuminated the slopes of the Aventine. Knowing his brother’s commercial bias, he added, “We can get three thousand a square foot for a view like that. There’s water up—”
     “I have to take this.” Romulus accepted a scroll from a sweaty messenger, frowned and dictated a reply. Only then did Remus learn his brother had already chosen a name for the development.
     I always get the hind teat, Remus thought bitterly.
