Father: I have decided to use all my savings to give you a good education, so that you can have a decent and honest Job which will help us survive when I can no longer work. Boy: Thank you father. I will study hard and you will be proud of me. Father: You will leave next week. Narrator: The young boy went to the university where he spent there three years.
One day the boy received a letter from his father. Boy: (thinking) My father doses ‘t have any money and I can ‘t stay here anymore. I have to go back. Narrator: When he arrived home his father said. Father: I don ‘t know what are we going to do. With the money I earned cutting wood, we can hardly survive. Boy: Don ‘t worry father, I will go with you to the forest and I will help you. Father: It’s hard work, and you ‘re not used to it. Besides, we only have one ax and we don ‘t have money to buy another one. Boy: Why don ‘t you ask our neighbor to lend you his ax? Father: That’s a good idea… ND we will buy another one when we have enough money. Narrator: Next day, their neighbor lent them an ax, and so they went to the forest to work. After lunch, the boy said. Father: Don ‘t take too long, we still have a lot of work to do. Boy: I won ‘t. Narrator: When he was in the deep woods, he saw an enormous oak tree. Then he heard a voice calling him. Spirit: Help! Help! Let me out of here! I want to go out! Narrator: As the boy was walking, he saw a bottle in the ground with a little creature inside. Carefully, he picked up the bottle. Boy: What a strange little bottle… And the voice is coming from inside.
Spirit: Let me out! Let me out! Boy: I will open it! Narrator: As soon as the boy opened the bottle, the little creature started to grow, ND grow, and grow, until it became a huge giant. Spirit: Prepare yourself! I’m going to eat you! I have been here for a long time, and I am very hungry! Boy: Wait, wait… Before you do, I have to be sure that it was you who was inside the bottle… Then you can eat me. Spirit: But it was me! You saw me! Boy: Prove it! Spirit: How? Boy: Get smaller again! Spirit: Very well… Then I will eat you! Narrator: Then the giant got smaller, and smaller, and smaller, and the boy closed Spirit: Let me out!
If you do, I will do whatever you want me to do! Let me out! I will make you rich! I’m telling you the truth! Let me out of here! Boy: You have to promise that you will not eat me! Spirit: I promise. Narrator: The boy opened the bottle, and the little creature started to grow, until it became a huge giant once again. Spirit: Thank you! Boy: How can you help me? Spirit: Take this handkerchief. When you suffer an injury, cover it with the handkerchief, and it will heal instantly. And when you cover a metal object with it, the metal will turn into silver. Boy: Go now… You are free!
Narrator: As soon as the giant left, the boy returned to where his father was. Father: Where have you been? It’s getting dark and we haven ‘t finished. Boy: Don ‘t worry father. I’ll do all the work. Narrator: The boy took the ax and cleaned it with the handkerchief, and suddenly the ax turned into silver, and broke. Father: You broke the ax! Now we have to pay for it, and we don ‘t have any money! Narrator: The boy took the broken ax and saw that it had turned into silver. Boy: Don ‘t worry father… I have something to tell you. Father: What is it? Boy: Look at it, father… This is not an ordinary ax.
Father: What do you mean? What’s this? Boy: It’s silver. Narrator: Then the boy told his father about the giant. Boy: We have to sell it, father. Father: Let’s go to town right away! Narrator: They sold the ax almost immediately, and bought a new one for their neighbor. Father: Let’s go give him this new ax. Boy: And with all this money I can go back to the university, where I will become a doctor. Father: What about the handkerchief? Boy: With this handkerchief I will heal all my patients.

Old Man: Good morning… (he stops and watches them) Farmer: Good morning… Old Man: Oh my!
When I was young these things never happened! Why is a young ND healthy boy riding the donkey, and his poor father is walking? This is so disrespectful! Oh, my!

Son: To tell you the truth. I don ;t know, father. We did what they told us to do, but we could ;t please them. Everybody criticized us, and now they laugh at us. Farmer: Look, my son. I wanted you to see with your own eyes that there are many different opinions and that it’s not possible to please everybody. Son: I can see that, father. They laughed at us because we tried to please them, but what are we going to do now? Father: Well, you must think right and decide what you think it’s better. Son: Even if not everybody agrees. I know what to do!
