Fables with moral: Gold and rats
Once upon a time there was a rich merchant who, before making a long trip, took precautions to avoid being robbed of his fortune. To make sure that all his gold bars were safe, he confided them to who he thought was a good friend. And so, calm and confident, he set off on a trip.
Time passed and the merchant returned home. The first thing he did was to recover his fortune. But a big surprise awaited him.
- Bad news! - his friend told him. I kept your ingots in a chest under seven keys without knowing that there were rats in my house. You can not imagine what happened! The rats pierced the chest and ate the gold. Those animals are capable of devouring everything!
- Noooo, noooo What a disgrace! the merchant lamented. I'm completely ruined, what am I going to do now? Do not worry, friend, you're not guilty, those dirty rats are.
But the merchant who suspected the words of his friend devised a plan to hunt down a lying size. Before he left he invited him to eat the next day and that same night he sneaked out and took the best horse from his stable.
The next day the friend arrived at the merchant's house dejected:
-Excuse me of my bad humor, -dijo he said, perobut I just suffered a great loss: el the best of my horses disappeared . I looked for it through the countryside and the forest but the earth swallowed it up.- Is it possible? said the merchant, simulating innocence. Would not an owl have taken it? Casually last night, in the light of the moon, I saw an owl fly carrying a beautiful horse between its legs.
- What nonsense! -the friend was angry. Where it has been seen, a bird that weighs nothing, rise with a beast of hundreds of kilos! "Everything is possible," the merchant pointed out.
In a town where rats eat gold, why do you wonder that owls steal horses?
And that's how the cheater knew what it was like to fall into his own trap. The bad friend, confessed that he had lied, the gold returned to its owner and the horse to his stable. Moraleja
