The Golden Touch
There once was a king. He was very rich. The king loved two
things： his little daughter and his gold. He had many rooms full of
gold, but he was not happy. He wanted to have more gold.
One day the king was in his garden. A strange man came to see him.
The stranger told the king to make a wish. The king said, "I wish to have
more gold." "I will help you get your wish," the stranger answered.
"Tomorrow morning, everything you touch will change to gold."
The next morning the king got up early. He touched a chair, a flower,
and a table. Everything changed to gold! The king was very happy.
He sat down to eat his breakfast, but his food turned to gold when he
touched it. He thought, "If I can't eat anything, I will die."
Then his little daughter came into the room. She ran to her father.
But when he touched her, she changed to gold, too.
The king was very sad. He walked alone in his garden. Then he
saw the stranger again. "Oh," cried the king, "please take back my wish.
I don't want any more gold." "All right," said the stranger, "if you are
really sure this time, I will take back your wish."
After that, the king was not as rich, but he was wiser and happier.
