  • The Gold and the Fur Coat

    金子与皮大衣

     

      A young man and an old man were waiting for a bus at a station. They sat next to each other.

      “What's that in your bag?”asked the young man, pointing to a big bag beside the old man.

      “Gold, nothing but gold,”answered the old man.

      The young man could hardly believe his own ears,“What?”he said to himself in surprise.“So much gold? My God! How I wish to be able to get so much gold!”Then he began to think about how to get the gold.

      The old man looked tired and sleepy and it seemed that he could hardly keep his eyes open.“Are you sleepy, sir?”asked the young man.“Then you'd better lie down on the chair and have a good rest. Don't worry about the bus. I'll wake you up in time.”

      “All right. It's very kind of you, young man.”The old man lay down and before long he fell asleep.

      The young man took the big bag gently. But when he was about to run away, he found a corner of his fur coat was under the old man's body. Several times he tried to pull it out, but he couldn't. At last he took off his coat and went away with the bag.

      The young man ran out of the station as quickly as his legs could carry him. When he reached a place where he thought the old man couldn't find him, he stopped and quickly opened the bag.

      To his surprise, there was nothing but a lot of small stones in it. He hurried to the station at once. But when he got there, he found the old man was gone.
