Kinka the Lizard

Cerita yang cukup menginspirasiku.. :D

......................................................................................................................................................................

Once upon a time lived a small lizard. It had a ring around its neck. It lived in king’s garden.

One morning, the king was taking a walk around his garden. He looked at the trees. Then he saw Kinka. The king saw that Kinka was nodding its head.

“Look! That lizard is the most polite animal I’ve ever seen. It knows how to behave in front of a king,” the king said.

The king called his gardener,”I will give you a gold coin every day to buy some meat for the lizard.”

Every day, the gardener bought some meat for Kinka. The lizard became fatter and fatter every day. It grew lazier.

One day, the gardener was very busy. He didn’t have time to buy the meat for Kinka. So he just hung the gold coin around Kinka neck. The next day, he was still busy too. So, once again, he hung up another gold coin on to Kinka’s neck. The gold coins were too heavy for the lazy Kinka. So, it could not move his head. It looked down all the time.

Later in the afternoon, the king took a walk in the garden. He looked up and saw Kinka. It was on a tree. It didn’t nod his head. It just looked down. The king became very angry. He thought Kinka was being impolite to him.

The king said to gardener,”I hate this lizard. It’s impolite. From now on, stop buying this lizard some meat.”

From then on, Kinka had to look for food by itself. It crawled around the garden to find food. It grew thinner but healthier.
