Once upon a time,
A king went to the forest for hunting, with a group of his guards and friends.
The king was looking for something to hunt and, without noticing, got separated from his friends and guards.
The king was all alone and got a little scared.
He was looking to find others of his group when he saw someone getting close. The king prepared his arc and got ready to shoot at the man.
The man saw the king’s arc and screamed:
“Don’t shoot, don’t shoot. I am not your enemy. I work for you.
I take care of your horses.
You have seen me many times. I saw you here and came close just to pay my respect and say hi.”
The king didn’t shoot him and said: “You got lucky. I thought you were an enemy, and I was about to shoot you. How would I know you were a friend?!”
The man said: “I work with hundreds of horses and care enough to know them all one by one. If you ask me to find a specific horse, I know them well enough to bring it to you. I use my intellect and expedient for my horses. How come a king wouldn’t care enough to remember the people who work hard for him? Then how would you care to know the rest of your kingdom? Be very careful. This way, you wouldn’t be able to distinguish between your friends and enemies.”
