"Ah .., unfortunately." Complained thieves while traveling in front of the royal bodyguards. "From now on a big secret from my father will die with me. But I'm glad that I did not leak in the presence of the Lord King. "
"What did you say? What's the big secret? Come on, tell me the secret. "Said the guard wanted to know.
"If the Lord King planted pomegranate seeds, pomegranate seeds that will grow and bear fruit overnight. If there is no me, can that happen? That's a secret that my father taught me and I have to keep secret. "She said with a wistful.
Royal bodyguards stopped and thought for a moment, "Maybe .... The Lord King wants to experience before you die. We turned back to the Lord King. "She said. He rushed thief facing the king with the intention that the thief explains that she kept secret.
The King also was curious. "On a secret that you have to show me" said the king then ordered his guards not believe pomegranate plucked from the garden kingdom.

Only someone who has never steal or take something from someone else, what rights should not be putting these pomegranate seeds. Since I am a thief, then it must be one of the guys who did it. "
Employees kingdom, Royal Guards and the King was silent. The situation became silent. There was only the sound of birds chirping and bees buzzing.
The thief turned to the Royal Guards and pleaded, "Would Mr. pomegranate seeds put this?"

I was in severe legal time since I took a royal diamond necklace owned by father and hid it in my room. I did not know at that time that the necklace is worth and value to the kingdom. I just see it like a star gems the shining star and rainbow colors will shine on the wall, when the sun shone. "After the King finished, the atmosphere became quiet again.
Then the thief broke the silence by saying, "The Lord King, Lord was a powerful and rich. None needy. And now none of you were able to grow this pomegranate seeds. Oh ... so unfortunate fate. The new I would take the bread, that sense of lost laparku be hanged. "He complained.
"You really wise" The king said suddenly, looking at Thief who looked very sad. "You have shown us that no one is perfect.
