Once upon a time, there lived an intelligent thief. One day he was going to rob a palace but was caught by a soldier and taken to the king of the palace. The King asked the thief for two tasks to be done. "The first task is to steal two cows from the farm without letting the farmer know that cows are stolen," said the king. The thief went to the farm and got two cows. He cut off the tails and planted them on the ground. When the farmer came back, the farmer said, "Oh no! Strong earth has sucked down my cows; I have to go get new ones right away" said the farmer and the farmer set right away. Then they went back to the palace. "The last task is to steal a ring from a queen's finger "- the king said.


The thief went in front of the dressing room where the queen was."Your majesty, please hurry and give me your ring, somebody is going to steal it." The thief stuck out his hands through the curtains and the queen put the ring on his hand. Next, the king came and said exactly the same thing as the thief did. The queen was confused and said, "I thought that I already gave it to you." Suddenly the king found that the thief has succeeded. He found the thief and said, "My intelligent thief, you are now free, but only if you promise to stop robbing people, OK". "From now on, I will not rob people any more."- the thief agreed.
