Once again dear Renard of https://renardsworld.wordpress.com graciously hosted my humble post. Enjoy, Beautiful People!
This is a story of young men who get what they want regardless of societal norms or even simple politeness.
A Tzar had a tree that bore golden apples. He treasured it because he believed that golden apples grant immortality. Yet every night one of the apples disappeared. The Tzar set guard around the tree, and the guard reported that it was the Firebird who kept stealing precious apples, one by one. “What does the Firebird want them for? – marveled the Tzar, – Immortality if of no use to her. Catch the thieving bird, and you get half of my kingdom!” The two older princes tried several times, but the wily bird managed to escape. Then the youngest son, Ivan (of course!), asked permission to try his luck. “Eh, -said royal dad, – you are too young, but if you have nothing better to do, go ahead.”
