140. Angsa Bertelur Emas

People gathered in front of stores selling eggs at a market in the village. Who are outside want to get ahead get into, while the inside wanted to come closer to the front desk. They come from all over the country because there heard a goose laying golden eggs, they want to see it with my own eyes. And finally, in front of them all, the magic happen exactly as they heard.



On the table, glistening in the sun, lay a golden egg!


They clutched their money, they get sweaty hands, and their hands brandishing an egg scramble want to buy it. But the merchant, although he was very excited, can only be sold one golden egg a day. The others had to wait because of the Swans could only lay one egg a day!


The Merchant is really not satisfied with it, he wanted to have a lot of money. The idea is great and comes in his mind. The greedy merchant that will kill the goose! He will take all the eggs inside her body at once. He does not wait to get rich quick.


The buyer cheered when the Dealer announces it on their great idea. Then carefully he took out a sharp knife and split the bird's chest. People holding his breath. The blood red dripping wet goose feathers white feathers.


"He killed the bird!" fascinated people mumble.

Then a wise old grandmother said, "Yes, and he has done a great mistake! Now you will see, the goose is now just a normal bird. Course because he is dead."

Grandma was telling the truth. There lay a beautiful swan, chest split wide, but no egg was located in the body. Now it is only useful for the goose so roast goose.

"He's been killing the goose that gave him the golden egg!" a farmer said sadly.

People were leaving the store and walking home with unsteady.

Orang orang berkerumun di depan toko penjual telur di sebuah pasar di desa. Yang berada di luar ingin maju masuk ke dalam, sedangkan yang di dalam ingin lebih dekat lagi ke depan meja. Mereka datang dari seluruh penjuru negeri karena mendengar ada seekor angsa yang bertelur emas, mereka ingin melihatnya dengan mata kepala sendiri. Dan akhirnya, di depan mereka semua, hal ajaib itu terjadi persis seperti yang mereka dengar.


Di atas meja, berkilauan di bawah sinar matahari, tergeletak sebuah telur emas!
Mereka menggenggam erat-erat uang mereka, tangan mereka sampai berkeringat, dan mereka mengacung- acungkan tangannya berebutan ingin membeli telur itu. Tapi si Pedagang, walaupun dia sangat bersemangat, hanya bisa menjual satu telur emas sehari. Yang lain terpaksa menunggu karena si Angsa hanya bisa bertelur satu telur sehari!


Si Pedagang benar-benar tidak puas dengan hal itu, dia ingin segera punya banyak uang. Gagasan yang hebat lalu terlintas di pikirannya. Pedagang yang rakus itu akan membunuh si Angsa! Ia akan mengambil semua telur yang ada di dalam tubuhnya sekaligus. Dia sudah tidak sabar ingin segera cepat kaya.


Para pembeli bersorak gembira ketika si Pedagang mengumumkan ide hebatnya itu pada mereka. Kemudian dengan hati-hati ia mengeluarkan sebuah pisau tajam dan membelah dada burung itu. Orang-orang menahan nafasnya. Darah si Angsa menetes merah membasahi bulu bulunya yang putih.


"Dia membunuh burungnya!" orang-orang bergumam terpesona.


Lalu seorang nenek tua berkata dengan bijak,"Ya, dan dia telah melakukan kesalahan yang besar! Kamu semua akan lihat, angsa itu sekarang hanya seekor burung biasa. Tentu saja karena ia sudah mati."  


Nenek itu berkata benar. Di sana berbaring seekor angsa yang cantik, dadanya terbelah lebar, tapi tak ada sebutir telur pun terletak di dalam tubuhnya. Sekarang angsa itu hanya berguna untuk jadi angsa panggang.


"Dia sudah membunuh angsa yang memberinya telur emas!" seorang petani berkata sedih.


Orang-orang pun meninggalkan toko dan berjalan pulang dengan gontai.
