Storyboard Text

  • I wanna kiss you.
  • I want to kiss you, too.
  • You are like my brother. I am happy to give you the money.
  • Thank so much.
  • A rich merchant had a very vain wife that spent all of his money on her fancy clothes. Their house was always full with guests but the monk was their favorite one.
  • Finally.
  • One day while the merchant was getting ready to travel, the monk went to the garden to pray and the wife followed him. She started telling him her marital neglect and eventually told him that her husband did not let her buy new clothes that she needed. He promised to give her the money.
  • I gave the money to your wife.
  • That's odd...
  • Before the merchant leaves, the monk asked him for a loan of one hundred francs to purchase cattle. The merchant gladly gives him the money.
  • What happened to my money?
  • Doesnt't matter. I will repay you in bed. 
  • Soon after the merchant leaves, the monk went to the merchant's home, and in, exchange for money, the wife agrees to spend the night in bed with the monk.
  • Sometime later, the merchant stopped by the monk's abbey. The monk told him that he repaid the money to the wife only one or two days after borrowed it.
  • When the merchant returned home, he asked the wife for the money, then she confessed that she spent it all on clothes and promised to repaid him in bed. The merchant forgave her and tell her to not to be so extravagant again.  Moral: Don't trust anyone and don't lie.
