The two sons of the king who went on an adventure together, plunged into wild life and disguised themselves to the point of forgetting their father’s responsibilities and kingdom again. The third son who was the youngest son and was called by the nickname of the Fool, tried to overtake his two brothers, and when he found them, his two brothers mocked the Fool and said that the Fool would not be able to go with them on an adventure to conquer the world, because they were the only ones smarter, unsuccessful to date. But finally they agreed to adventure together and one day they found a mound of ant nests. A prankster’s desire arose from his two siblings to dismantle the nest and see the little ants running around scared carrying their eggs, still the Stupid said,
“Leave the little creatures alone, I will not let them be disturbed.”
And then the three of them continued their journey until they arrived at a lake, where in the lake there were a number of ducks swimming around. The two oldest sons of the king wanted to catch the duck and roast it, but the Fool did not allow them, and said, “Leave the creatures alone, I will not let them be killed.”
When they found a beehive in a tree, where the hive was filled with honey until it flowed out into the trunk of the tree, the two oldest sons wanted to make a fire under the tree so that the bees in the hive were driven away by fire smoke so that they could take the honey. But the Fool forbade them and said,
“Leave the little creatures alone, I will not let them suffocate by smoke.”
Finally the three brothers found a palace in which the palace stables contained many horses made of stone, and when the three brothers entered the palace and explored all the rooms, they found a locked door with three keys, and at the door the room, found a small hole where they could see into the room through the small hole. They saw an old man with gray hair sitting at the table. They then called out to him once, twice, and the third time, the old man stood up, opened the door, then left the room. Without saying a word, he led them to a table filled with good items and delicious food. And after the three sons of the king ate and drank, he showed each bedroom to the three sons. The next morning, the old man visited the king’s eldest son, summoned him and brought him to a stone table, where on the table there were three writings that indicated things to remove the curse from the palace. The first thing is, in the forest under the moss, there are pearls belonging to the king’s daughter numbering in a thousand, and these pearls must be searched and collected, and if the person who gets the task does not complete it until sunset, or if there is still a missing mutiarapun , he will turn to stone. The oldest son of the king went out to look for the pearls, but all day until sunset, he only found a hundred pearls, and as written on the stone table, he turned to stone. The second king’s son, received the task the next day, but he also failed to complete it and only got two hundred pearls. He also instantly turned to stone.
When the Stupid gets his turn, he starts searching throughout the forest and under the moss, but searching for these pearls is really not an easy task, until finally the Stupid starts to despair, sits on a rock and starts crying. When he sat down, the ant king and five thousand ants came, who had been saved by the Fool. Not long after that the little creatures managed to collect all the pearls and put it in one pile.
The second thing written on the stone table was getting the keys to the Princess’s bedroom from the lake.
And when the Stupid came to the lake, the duck whose life was saved by him, came swimming, diving, and brought the keys found at the bottom of the lake. The third thing that must be done and is the most difficult thing, is to choose the youngest daughter of three sleeping daughters. All princesses have faces that are similar to each other, and what can be the difference between them is, before they fall asleep, they drink three types of sweet drinks. The oldest daughter drinks sugar water, the second drinks syrup, and the youngest drinks honey. It was then that the Queen of Bees, who had been saved by the Fool, came to help and alighted on the princess who had drunk honey, so the Fool could guess correctly. It was then that all the curses of magic on the palace disappeared, all people and creatures affected by the curse, including the two sons of the king, became awakened and transformed into stone, returning to what they were before.
The fool finally married the youngest daughter, and was appointed king instead of his dead father.
