Demons in the Desert Todd Anderson Re-told and Illustrated Mimi Chung


Demons in the Desert Todd Anderson Re-told and Illustrated Mimi Chung


Once there was a caravan

of a merchant , three servants and


two bullocks who were travelling to a far off town to sell their goods.


On the way they came to a wilderness called the

Waterless Desert


which the local people said was haunted by

Demons .


The caravan reached the middle of the desert. They met a

large group coming fro m t he opposite direction.


Demons

The leader of this group, who were in human form, said to the merchant ,

w rt ‘In a short t ime you wi ll re ach th at o asis on the horizon with p lenty of ate o s drink an d d ates to e at. Your bu l locks a r e tired fr om p ul ling th o se he avy c ar t fille d with e xtra w ater - s o th row away t he water a nd be k in d to your overworked anim als.’


The merchant and his servants thought the strangers were trust worthy, so they emptied their water onto the ground.


Even though the local people had him, the

warned

merchant did not realize that

these were not real people, but

Demons .


Without water, the merchants and the animals soon became

weak and exhausted and fell into a deep sleep.

be wise enough not to be fooled by tricky talk and false appearances.
