Traditional stories. The brave little tailor
Once there was a kingdom, whose population yearned to end a horrible giant, because it was always damaging its crops. But this did not worry a young tailor. He just wanted to eat his bread with jam and kill the flies that would not let him work.
One day, decided, he took his palmette and, wham, seven flies fell one after the other. "I killed seven with one blow!" He shouted. And, proudly, he opened the window repeating it at the top of his lungs. A man, who had been thinking of the giant, thought that he was referring to seven giants; He ran to tell the king: "The little tailor killed seven giants, in one fell swoop."
The king and his daughter, the beautiful princess, ordered the brave little tailor to go immediately to the palace. "I expected the hero to be stronger," said the king when he saw the young and friendly little tailor. "You must be very brave, to have killed seven giants in one fell swoop." ¿"Giants?" Said the little tailor intrigued, unable to clear up the mess, because at that moment the beautiful princess embraced him and the king approached him, to say affectionately:
"If you manage to capture the evil giant, not only will you I will give treasures, but also the hand of my beautiful daughter, the princess. " "Your Excellency," said the tailor, "I will meditate on your proposal," and left, thinking: "I love the princess, but how would I kill a giant?" Suddenly, a shuddering noise forced him to climb a tree of oranges. He was the giant and he almost missed it! He thought he was safe there, but the evil one, seeing them so delicious, picked up several oranges to eat them. Among them was our little friend. When he wanted to hide, he was already in the huge hand, face to face with the giant.
"I'm not afraid of you!" the little tailor told him as he swallowed, and immediately hid in the sleeve of his enormous shirt.
It was not long before the giant captured him, taking him to the wine cellar of his great castle. There, the tailor told him: "I killed seven of a few! Could you take all the wine from this store?" The giant looked at him, hurt in his self-love.
"You vile scoundrel, you will not humiliate me! Of course I can do it!" And the giant began to drink; but the third barrel fell to the floor totally drunk. Our little friend proceeded to chain him, and then gave notice to the court to take him to the dungeons. The little tailor was received jubilantly, and the king proceeded to marry his beautiful daughter with our brave little friend.
