Many years ago, a merchant brought a parrot to his country from India.
The parrot and merchant became best friends. After that, the merchant believed the parrots are the most loyal creatures in the world.
The parrot was always with the merchant. He sometimes carried the parrot on his shoulder or hand. The parrot loved sugar cubes more than anything in his small world.
The parrot loved the merchant because he was kind and always gave her sugar cubes.
“It’s time to go to sleep. But both of us shouldn’t sleep, because I heard people say there is a thief in the town. Please, stay awake and watch the valuable things; if anyone wanted to take it away, scream and wake me up.” Said the merchant to the parrot.
The merchant went to sleep. After a short time, a man jumped down from the wall into the merchant’s house.
The parrot was watching the thief but didn’t wake the merchant.
The thief took all the valuable things in the house and emptied the place and left.
The merchant woke up and saw the house bare; he panicked.
“Good morning.” Said the parrot.
“How can it be a good morning when they’ve taken everything. Did you see anyone last night?” The merchant said.
“Yes. A man came into the house from the wall.” The parrot said calmly.
“He took everything?! You were supposed to wake me up if any thief is taking valuable things!” The merchant growled.
“Yes. You said if anyone tried to take any valuable thing, scream and wake me up, but the thief didn’t touch the sugar cubes, and the valuable things were safe.” The parrot said.
