Ever since I was born, I have had this magic finger. Whenever I stick it into the air, I can see everything that is happening, for as far as two days. I think I must have got the gift from my father. He’s a very rich man, who keeps large herds of camels, goats, sheep, cattle, and horses. Better than all that, he can change himself into a serpent, a dog, or a monster whenever he pleases.
I’m not afraid of any of those things, because I’m his son. My mother, on the other hand, is a force to be reckoned with!
