Once upon a time, there was a wise king who ruled his realm justly and fairly. He had a trusted minister who counselled him on all state problems. One day, the monarch was forced to make a terrible decision that could endanger his subjects. He sought counsel from his minister, who proposed a course of action that would enrich the monarch but potentially hurt the people.
The monarch was divided between his responsibilities to his subjects and his devotion to his minister. He realised he had to make a decision in the best interests of his realm. So he convened his council of counsellors and solicited their advice. After much thought, the king reached a choice that was both right and fair to himself and his people.
Recognising his error, the minister apologised to the monarch and promised to always put the interests of the kingdom ahead of his own. From that day on, the king and the minister collaborated to secure the kingdom’s prosperity and well-being.
