Fundevogel (Foundling Bird) Part 1
A German folk story about a man, his daughter, a suspicious cook & a boy.
A forester lived with his daughter Lina, a cook & three servants. They were happy & always had enough.
One day the forester was out in the forest where he found a boy. He decided to take him home & raise him with Lina.
The two came home & Lina was overjoyed to see them. The cook, however, had other motives.
They named the boy Fundevogel (Founding Bird) because he was found in a bird's nest.
A day later Lina found the cook drawing many buckets of water at the well.
Cook? Why are you drawing so many buckets of water? We don't need that much water for a bath!
She pestered the old woman with questions.
Oh, stop bothering me girl! Can't you see I'm busy?
Eventually the cook relented & told Lina of her macabre plans.
To be continued...
I'll tell you if you don't blab to anyone. I'm fetching this much water for a big pot of soup. Early tomorrow morning I'm going to cook Fundevogel for lunch...
