The noise was of a bearded man who was moaning feebly, because of a large wound in his stomach.When the king saw him he quickly ran and without wasting any time bandaged the wound with his handkerchief and hermit's towel but the blood would not stop flowing so he washed the warm blood and rebandaged it he did this till the blood stopped to flow and ....
Meanwhile the sun had already set, so the king and the hermit decided to carry the man to hermit's home so that he can rest for the night.
Can I get something to drink?
Sure, here Is some water.
They laid down the bearded man on the bed. Lying there, the man closed his eyes and was quite; but the king was so tired with his walk and the work, that he crouched down near the threshold andfell asleep-so soundly that he slept all through the short summer night.
You don't know me, but I know you, I am the enemy of yours who swore to talk revenge himself , because you seized my property and executed my brother. I knew that you were going to see the hermit alone so I thought that it would be a perfect movement to kill you but your bodyguards found me and injured me gravely.if you wouldn't had found me, then I probably would be dead.I will serve you for the rest of my life just please forgive me.
I am very glad to make peace with my enemy so you don't have to sever me or anything.
I don't know you and have nothing to forgive you.
The king approached the hermit and begged for the answer for the last time then the hermit said...
Don't you see, If you just left without helping me then the bearded man would kill you.So, the most important person is that whom you are with, and to help that person is your biggest priority and the one time that is important is that when we have power.
