My favorite memories of my childhood consist of all the beautiful fairy tales that my mother used to tell us before we went to sleep. All of the stories that I share in my blog are those memorable tales that always taught us great lessons.
Once upon a time, there lived an unhappy young man in a small village. He decided to ask the head of the village how he could find happiness.
The head of the village advised him: “Go to a not so far down towards the East. There lives a wise man who knows the answer to every question. Ask him how to find happiness.”
The young man liked the head of the village’s advice and started walking early the next morning. He walked and walked until he saw an unhappy wolf. He asked the wolf: “What is wrong?”
The Wolf responded: “I suffer from headaches every day.”
The young man said: “Don’t worry, I am going to see the famous wise man and will ask for your cure as well.” Then he continued his way. He walked and walked until he saw a big dry land and an unhappy owner.
The young man asked: “Why are you unhappy?” and he replied: “My father left me this land before he died but I am not allowed to sell it. It’s been five years since my father’s death. I am so broke, I really need to sell it.”
The young man promised that he would bring the answer to him, and continued walking.
He saw a small town with lots of soldiers and an unhappy king. He asked the king why he was unhappy. The king explained that he was very afraid to lose his kingdom as they kept losing all the battles.
The young man said that he will come back with an answer.
After a long walk that lasted many days, he got to the town of the wise man. He went to see him and began telling his and his friends’ problems.
The wise man told him all the answers and promised him that he would be a happy man when he went back.
The young man went to the king and said: “You are afraid because you have a secret. You are a woman who can’t tell his people the truth because they won’t believe a woman can rule.”
The king said: “Now that you know my secret, marry me and help me rule my kingdom.” He refused and said: “I was promised that when I go back I will be happy so I have to go back.”
He walked to the dry land with the unhappy owner and said: “Your father left the land for you to grow grains in it, so you would make money and be able to keep the land and live a good life.”
The owner said: “so stay with me and let’s farm together and I will share half the profit with you.”
The young man said: “I can’t. I have to go back to be happy.”
The young man got to the wolf and said: “In order to cure your headaches you, need to eat the brain of a stupid man.”
So wolf jumped on him and ate his stupid brain.
