The shop is on fire!!!! your shop is on fire! eutychus ransacked your shop!
"My dear friend! Surely I have warned you about his street? Surely you have friends who are able to save you?
One day, when he was coming from the temple, in which he had dined, he was returning home, and saw a friend running up. The friend was shouting, "The shop is on fire! Your shop is on fire! Your shop was ransacked by Eutychus and his hired thugs. I saw them wrenching off the doors, breaking the glass, burning the shop. Flee! Flee from the city! Eutychus wants to kill you. No one is able to resist him and his hired thugs."
"My friends are not here, but the gods are able to save me. The gods usually punish wicked men."
"What did you say? Do you dare speak to me in this way?"
After he arrived there, he was standing still in front of the shop. He saw the wretched off doors, the shop destroyed. Eutychus was standing outside of the shop with his Egyptian thugs, and laughing.
Eutychus laughingly said, "My dear friend! Surely I have warned you about his street? Surely you have friends who are able to save you? Where are they? Perhaps they are wiser than you."
Clemens responded to him with the greatest calmness, "My friends are not here, but the gods are able to save me. The gods usually punish wicked men." Eutychus said very angrily, "What did you say? Do you dare speak to me in this way?"
Suddenly the sacred cat, which Clemens would usually pet, came out of the temple. It headed straight for Clemens. It jumped into the hands of Clemens. At once all of the Egyptians threw away their clubs and fell down to the feet of Clemens. They would not dare to harm Clemens, whom the sacred cat was protecting.
Eutychus fled with his terrified thugs. Afterwards, he would not try to harm neither Clemens or his shop. Soon he even left the city. Now Clemens is the chief of the shopkeepers.
