The Invisible Beggar Boy
In the old days of castles, princesses, and small villages, we find a beggar boy. He was excited, for the king and his daughter were coming to the village. The king gathered the people and gave them a wonderful speech about how loyal subjects they were. At the end of his speech he had his servants pass out white bread. White bread was hard to get and when the poor villagers saw it, they cried, "Long live the king!"
Then the king left. The boy walked in the forest to think about the beauty of the princess. Her skin was as pale as milk, her hair was golden and shiny, her eyes were blue, and she curved in all the right places.
"I wish I could make the princess mine," said the boy.
As he said this he found a red rock. No doubt it fell from the planet Mars. He picked it up and he became invisible. With this new power, he journeyed to the castle and stole the princess. He took her to the forest. There he built her a cabin under a waterfall.
At first the princess hated the cabin, but soon she fell in love with nature and the boy. In nature there were no pretenses, only nature. No more lies, no more giving people white bread while taxing them to death. This was gone. No more was she a princess. Now, she was a goddess. And they lived a long and happy life together.
