Read the story below

One day a shepherd boy took his goats to the hills. The goats liked to eat the green grass at the foothills. The king who
lived in his palace nearby also liked to spend long hours on the hill painting the landscape.
While the shepherd boy sat under a tree, he watched the King paint a beautiful picture. The King would paint and
then step back to look at his painting. However, the King walked back too far. He did not realise he was getting too
close to the edge.
The shepherd boy stood up in panic. If he did not warn the King, he might fall off the hill. The shepherd boy
shouted several times but the King could not hear him. Then, he picked up a stone and aimed for the Kings painting
and threw it.
Just as expected, the King stopped walking backwards and looked at his paintings in shock. He looked around but
did not know where the stone came from. Meanwhile, the shepherd boy raced up the hill. When he reached up the
hill, the King was still staring at his painting.
The shepherd boy told the King that he had thrown the stone at the painting. Immediately, the King turned purple
with rage. The shepherd boy was afraid but quickly asked the King to turn around slowly. The puzzled King did as he
was told. He gasped loudly. The King jumped away from the edge.
