Give and Get

One day you see a girl play a drum. You wish you had one. But all you see around you is a stick. You pick it up.

You meet a boy with some wood. "I want to bake bread," he says. "Can I use your stick to start a fire?" The boy starts a fire. He gives you some of the bread.

You see a man with a horse. "I'm so hungry," says the man. You give the man some bread. "Take this horse," the man says.

The next day you hear drums. "Our horse ran off. My son can't ride to his wedding," says the mother. You give the woman the horse.

"You saved the wedding!" says the mother. "Here is a drum as a thank you present." And that is how you got your drum.
