¨ I am very miserable..gold is not everything
The next morning King Midas woke up and slightly moved his blanket off of him. When he touched the blanket it turned gold.After the king found out he had the golden touch, he touched everything he saw, even his food, and it turned solid gold.

Then the king was disappointed with himself, so his daughter went over and gave him a hug. around the knees he bent down to kiss her and Unfortunately she turned solid gold.
The king finally realized that he was very greedy. Luckily the stranger came back, and the king begged to have everything back to normal.
