short bedtime stories for adults online

A poor Indian farmer borrowed a large sum of money from a greedy man known for cheating and deception. The man borrowed this amount to treat his wife who fell seriously ill, and the farmer did not have enough money to buy the treatment.

The farmer's daughter was very beautiful. The deceitful man wanted to marry her, but she rejected him. So he put pressure on her father and said to him: What do you think about marrying your daughter and exempting you from paying your debt?

The farmer rejected this idea, so the deceitful man suggested another idea and told him: Let fate determine if your daughter will be my wife or not, what do you think that I put two stones in a bag, a black stone and a white stone, if your daughter chooses the black stone, she will be my wife and I waive the debt, and if she chooses the white stone, you will be exempted from paying the debt and your daughter will not be my wife, but if your daughter refuses to pick up any stone from them, you will be imprisoned if you do not pay the debt.

The farmer was afraid and hesitant, so his daughter approached him and said to him in his ear: Agree, father, and don't worry.

The deceitful man summoned some of the villagers, and they all went to a land full of stones. While everyone was distracted in the discussion, the man bent down, picked up two black stones and put them in the bag.

The farmer's daughter was well attentive to the deceiver man and noticed that he put two black stones in the bag, after that the man asked the girl to pick up a stone from the bag.

The girl was very smart, so she put her hand into the bag, chose a stone, and closed her hand tightly over the stone so that its color would not be visible. After the girl took out the stone, she fell to the ground and the stone fell from her.

Everyone asked her about the color of the stone that she had picked up, so the girl said: How stupid I am! I did not see the color of the stone that I picked up, and the ground is full of white and black stones, but we can look at the stone in the bag, and then we will know the color of the stone that I picked up.

Everyone looked inside the bag and found the black stone, which means that the girl chose the white stone, and thus the farmer was relieved of the debt he borrowed from the deceitful man.

As for the deceitful man, he was unable to expose himself in front of people and was forced to give up the money he had lent to the farmer.

David Lloyd George

In 1920, the Medical Syndicate held a large party in England to graduate a new batch of doctors, and the British Prime Minister at that time attended the party.

The head of the Doctors Syndicate congratulated the graduates, then gave them some advice and told them this story:

One cold winter night, lightning and thunder were covering the sky, and it was raining heavily. In the midst of this extremely cold weather, a woman knocked on my door and when I opened the door for her, she said to me while crying: Please, Doctor, come with me now. My son is sick and in a very serious condition.

I did not hesitate for a moment to help this woman and her son. I left everything I was doing, took some medicine and a first aid kit, and went with the woman. The woman lived in one of the poor neighborhoods of London, and after a difficult journey in this atmosphere, we arrived at the woman's house, she was living in a small room, and her son was sleeping and in pain in the corner of the room.

I examined the child well and reassured his mother about him. After that, I told the mother about specific foods for the child to eat and gave her the medicine for free. After I had finished, the woman gave me an amount of money, but I refused to take any money from her.

After the doctor had finished the story, he said to the new graduates: My sons, this is the medical profession. It is the profession of mercy and giving and the closest profession to God.

After the doctor had finished his speech, the Prime Minister came to the podium and said to the doctor: Sir, It's an honor to see you today, I have been looking for you for twenty years; I am that child that you mentioned in this story and I have been looking for you for many years to thank you, my mother recommended me before her death to look for you well, and today the fate brings us together after all these years. Thank you very much for the good you did for my mother and me, and thank you for refusing to take money from us when you knew that we were poor.

This poor child, whom the doctor treated for free, is former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Lloyd George.

You will reap what you have sown in your life, good or evil, even if after many years.
