Once there was a king. He likes to write stories, but his stories were not good. As people were afraid of him, they all said his stories were good.

  One day the king showed his stories to a famous writer. He waited the writer to praise these stories. But the writer said his stories were so bad that he should throw them into fire. The king got very angry with him and sent him to prison.

  After some time, the king set him free. Again he showed him some of his new stories and asked what he thought of them.

  After reading them, the writer at once turned to the soldiers and said: " Take me back to prison, please."
