A king lived in a fort with his daughter, Clara. The king had founded a great empire,
but his land was rife with enemies who wanted to take over the kingdom. Because there
was so much civil unrest, the king told Clara not to trust anyone.
One day, Clara was walking outside when she saw a girl sweeping the path. Clara
crossed the garden, and they started talking. The girl’s name was Susie. Clara felt sorry
for Susie because she was very poor, and Clara gave her a bracelet. After that, Susie and
Clara met every day.
Once, the King saw them talking. He told Clara, “Don’t talk to that girl. She could be
an enemy.”
“You can’t distrust everyone,” commented Clara. “She is my sole friend. It’s OK to be
friendly to people.”
The King said, “Don’t argue with me. Stay inside from now on, and talk to no one.”
Clara felt lonely in the fort. But one day she saw Susie outside. She wrote her a note
with a map showing a secret entrance to the fort. Clara wrote: “Come at night, and we
can talk together. Don’t show anybody this note.” She threw the note to Susie, and Susie
tucked it in the lining of her dress.
That night Clara waited for Susie. But she heard something ticking, and then a loud
blast. She ran into the hall, and it was full of smoke, which made her choke. A mass of
soldiers were there, fighting. Clara realized that Susie had betrayed her and given the
map to her father’s enemies. Clara prayed that everyone in the castle would be safe from
her friend’s treachery.
At last, the fighting ceased. Clara found her father in the hall with his soldiers. They
had defeated their enemies, but there were dents in their armor from the heavy fighting.
Clara told her father what she had done and promised never to disobey him again.
