King John and King Paul had been at war for years, and King
Paul was getting tired of it. He decided to make peace
between himself and King John. So he sent his eldest son,
his most trusted Prince, to see King John and arrange the
peace. Well, the Prince travelled for days and finally
arrived at King John's castle. It was a huge stone
fortress, surrounded by a deep moat which was filled with
tiny Piranha-like fish called Yellow Fingers. These Yellow
Fingers could strip a cow to the bones in minutes! So the
Prince yelled up to the guards, "Lower your drawbridge! I
come from King Paul to arrange the peace." They did lower
the drawbridge, but just as the prince put one foot on it,
they yanked the drawbridge back up again, causing the
prince to flip into the moat, where he was eaten by the
Yellow Fingers. When King Paul heard this he was very
upset, but he was still determined to make the peace. So he
sent his most trusted Barons as his emissaries. One by one
they were tricked into falling in the moat. King Paul sent
his Dukes. They too were eaten by the fish. Finally no one
was left n the castle but a little page boy. "Page," said
King Paul wearily, you are my last hope. You must make the
peace between King John and me. lad, and good luck." The
page went to the drawbridge "I come from King Paul to
arrange the peace!" As they had done many times before,
King John's men lowered the bridge, then yanked it back up
just as the victim put a foot on it. But a strange
thing happened. The page, instead being eaten, walked right
along the bottom of the moat, climbed onto drawbridge, and
entered the castle. King John was so impressed by this that
he made peace! What is the moral? Let your pages do the
walking through the yellow fingers.
