The Duke and the Minister
A mean duke grew tobacco, and his cardinal rule was to always keep the plants healthy. The duke’s top minister was his twin brother.
They closely resembled each other. One day, the tobacco plants started to die. He hired men to watch the fields. Soon, the men brought a woman to him and said, “We captured a witch!”
The Duke asked, “ How do you know?”
“She sang magic words. I can’t pronounce them. She has cursed us. The death of the plants is a symptom of her curse,” the men said.
“I am just an ordinary woman. I was singing a song in a different language,” the woman protested.
The duke didn’t listen. “You are guilty. You will go to jail.” The minister thought that she was innocent. He needed to expose the truth.
He asked the duke to loan him one of his plants. He looked at it closely. He saw hundreds of small bugs eating it! Then the minister went to the jail and did something bold.
“Let this woman go,” he said.
The guards thought he was the duke. They let her go. The minister said, “I owe you an apology.”
“Thank you. I thought my stay in jail was permanent,” the woman answered.
The minister thought the duke would punish him. But he didn’t. The duke was too busy trying to preserve his plants.
