about a....
just read it i'm not a spoiler

300 years ago there was a magic pot maker. He lived in the hills of Greece. One day after long hours of work he got a request for a pot from the king of Greece. The pot maker knew that this king was very picky indeed so he must make it elegant and unique.

After a few days of gathering supplies, he went to work. He worked long and hard.  After 3 days he was done (I wrote done even though the original word was finished but who cares) the pot was lined with patterns and the middle of it had an interesting painting of the plains of Africa.

The next day he presented it to the king witch was rather pleased with it. Later he threw a party to celebrate. Everyone there danced and sung many songs the pot maker also got a few dozen orders for pots. After the party, he asked to speak to the king in private. The pot maker warned the king never to drop a coin in the pot.

As days went by the king grew more and more curious until he couldn’t handle his curiosity anymore! The next morning, he ordered his servant to give him 1 golden coin. He slowly dropped the coin down the pot. He heard a small ‘clink’ he waited a while but nothing happened so he went to bed.

The next day he went to check on the pot. He was surprised by what he saw. He could see a young lady standing gloomily next to the pot. The king introduced himself and started talking to her. He was so blinded by her beauty that he didn’t notice the queen standing right behind him. She yelled and screamed and kicked him out of the palace (somehow) and with no one to talk to the lady went back into the sad lonely pot.

The End
