Walking in a Circle

Five people are walking along a ring without stop. None of them know exactly why they have to walk, but they just enjoy the walking. This walking is all their life, they don't want to change anything, and what's more, they don't think it is necessary to change anything. Their life is peaceful, peaceful because of the rule of walking within a circle and finally just for the rule which circles them.
But one day three of the five get some new ideas which means beyond the basic rule of walking something new hits their brain. It means that from now on they don't just walk but also think of something unrelated.
A: Oh, I love the pen!
B: Oh, I love the pen!
C: Oh, I love the pen!
But the fact that the three guys love their pens annoys Boss D. Mr. D insists that their love to the pen or whatever else the walking is unnecessary. The only thing that deserves is just to concentrate themselves on the action of walking. And besides what he really minds lies in the worry that the action of loving something else might hinter his own way of the unconscious walking. So he is ill, badly ill for good a month.
One month later as he feels better, he tell Ms. E, the junior boss:
''I don't like pen, and also I don't want it to be liked. Still if I can hear that someone loves his pen tomorrow, I think you're quite clear what will happen to you.”
The words of Mr. D make Ms. E so afraid that she's got sick immediately, badly sick for a month.
One month later as she feels better, she decides to have a talk with A, B and C. First she says to A:
''Do you love your pen?”
''Yes, madam, very much!”
''But it's wrong for you to love your pen. You and me have the same mind, and I have also the same mind with Mr. D. So you cannot love your pen. Understand?”
''Yes, madam!” answers A immediately.
''And in order to prove that you have really the same mind with me, you ought to tell me anyone but you who also love his pen as you know.”
''Yes, madam! They are B and C. I'm 100% loyal to you and Mr. D!”
After the talk A is also sick.
Then Ms. E has another talk with B.
''Do you love your pen?”
''Yes, madam, very much!”
''Your love to your pen should be appreciated. But you know there are people who might also love their pens just like you when they've got a pen. But they don't have pens because they live abroad. You know western countries are not rich enough as our country to make pens. So, would you please give your pen to me, and I will pass it to our brothers abroad so that they'll have a pen to love?”
''That's OK... but you know I spent 1 yuan on the pen...”
''I give you 2 yuan in return.”
''That's really a deal! OK, no problem!”
After B leaves happily, Ms. E throws the pen aside, with a scornful look on her face.
Finally Ms. E says to C:
''Do you love your pen?”
''Yes, madam, very much!”
''Your love to your pen should be appreciated. But you know there are people who might also love their pens just like you when they've got a pen. But they don't have pens because they live abroad. You know western countries are not rich enough as our country to make pens. So, would you please give your pen to me, and I will pass it to our brothers abroad so that they'll have a pen to love?”
''No.”
''I will give you 2 yuan in return!”
''No.”
''But you know, your love to your pen is really dangerous for the others, and what's important, for yourself. ”
''Yeah, I know, but I just don't want to obey you.”
''OK, that's good.”
Finally the life returns to peace. The people begin to walk in the circle again. But this time you can find C no longer. The rest four continue their aimless walking, obeying their rule. They seem never to know where they can find a end, but that's not the point. Luckily, they enjoy themselves.
