The Golden Bird

Once upon a time, in a magical kingdom, there lived a king who dreamed of hearing the song of a legendary Golden Bird. This bird, brighter than the sun, sang so sweetly that all who heard it were filled with joy.

The king had three sons: the eldest two were very proud, but the youngest, named Jack, was kind and clever. One day, the king discovered that golden apples from his garden were disappearing. He asked his sons to find out who was stealing them.

The first night, the eldest son tried to watch the garden but fell asleep. The same happened with the second son on the next night. On the third night, it was Jack’s turn. He stayed awake and saw the Golden Bird! He tried to catch it but only managed to grab one of its golden feathers.

The king was amazed by the feather and wanted the bird even more. So, Jack set off on an incredible journey to find it. Along the way, he met a wise fox, who gave him valuable advice: “Do not take the golden cage at the bird’s home.”

When Jack found the Golden Bird, he forgot the fox’s advice and tried to catch it in a golden cage. Alarms rang out, and Jack was captured by the bird’s guardians. They threw him into a dungeon but promised his freedom if he could bring them the Golden Horse, which ran faster than the wind.

This time, Jack listened to the wise fox. He caught the Golden Horse and, with the fox’s help, also rescued the Golden Bird!

But, as Jack was returning home, his envious brothers tricked him. They left him in the woods and took the horse and the bird to their father, claiming they had captured them. However, the Golden Bird and the Golden Horse refused to eat or drink.

Meanwhile, Jack was again helped by the wise fox and reached his kingdom. The moment the Golden Bird saw Jack, it began to sing its joyful song, and the Golden Horse leaped happily. The king realized the truth and praised Jack for his bravery and honesty.

Jack forgave his brothers, and they all learned the value of truth and kindness. As for the wise fox, it revealed that it was a prince under a spell, and Jack’s goodness broke the curse.

And they all lived happily ever after, with the Golden Bird’s song filling their hearts with joy.

Moral of the Story: Kindness and honesty are the keys to true happiness and success.
