Glen's Pot

Once upon a time, there was a boy, Glen. He had green fingers. He owned a garden, and it was the most beautiful in his town.

Everyone in the town loved flowers, and the old king did, too. One day, he called for all the children and gave them a special task.

"Grow these seeds for me. The one with the prettiest flowers will be our next king."

Glen planted the seeds in a pot and watered them every day, but nothing happened. Then he moved the seeds to a better pot and took care of them with different tools. Still nothing happened.

A month went by. All the kids' seeds turned into big flowers, but Glen's didn't. The old king called for the children again. He looked at all the flowers. Finally, he saw Glen's pot.

"Where are your flowers?" the king asked.

"I did my best, but they didn't grow," said Glen.

The king laughed with joy. "Of course they didn't. I roasted the seeds. You're the only honest child here."

After that, Glen became the new king.

葛倫的盆栽

很久很久以前,有個男孩,葛倫。他非常擅長園藝。他擁有一座花園,而且是城裡最美的花園。

城裡的每個人都愛花,老國王也是。有一天,他把所有孩子們叫來跟前,給了他們一個特別的任務。「幫我種下這些種子。種出最美麗花朵的那個孩子將成為我們的下一位國王。」

葛倫將種子種植到一個盆裡,並每天澆水,但什麼事都沒發生。接著,他將種子移到一個更好的盆子裡,並用不同的工具照顧它們。仍然什麼事都沒發生。

一個月過去了。所有小孩的種子都變成了大花朵,但是葛倫的卻沒有。老國王再一次召喚小孩們前來。他看了看所有的花朵。最後,他看到了葛倫的花盆。

「你的花朵在哪裡?」國王問。

「我已盡力了,但它們長不出來。」葛倫說。

國王愉悅地大笑。「它們當然長不出來。我烤過那些種子了。你是這裡唯一誠實的孩子。」

在那之後,葛倫成為了新的國王。
