One morning Abeydron told everybody he met that by then Abunawas had a GENIE. He asked them to keep their money as carefully as possible because the genie could secretly and easily take their money.
The rumour spread quickly. For about a week Abunawas tried to find out the SLANDERER. He smiled when he knew that it was Abeydron.
He took an old lamp out of his store room. He blew the dust off and then walked to the living room. He PRETENDED to have an Aladin's lamp. Whenever there was someone passing by his house, he rubbed the lamp gently in the living room. Then he dropped some coins.
Soon, the new story about the Aladin's lamp SPREAD widely. Abeydron heard this story. At first he did not believe it. Day by day more and more people talked about the Aladin's lamp. Abeydron who got more curious tried to find out the truth by visiting Abunawas himself.
In fact, the king also heard the news. He was also very interested in the news. He tried to SUMMON Abunawas to the palace. But the king's messengers always came back with no result. They said that Abunawas was not at home or he was very busy with his guests who wanted to see the magic lamp. So, the king decided to go to Abunawas' house himself.
One morning Minister Abydron walked alone to Abunawas' house. He wanted to arrive at Abunawas' house before other people did. By doing so, he could persuade Abunawas to let him rub the Aladin's lamp.
"I heard that you have Aladin's lamp. Is that true ?" asked Abeydron as soon as he met Abunawas at his house.
Abunawas smiled and answered, "Yes, I found it several weeks ago."
"People said that when you rub it three times, you will get whatever you want."
Abunawas smiled again, "You are right."
"Can I see the lamp ?" asked Abeydron.
"Yes, of course," answered Abunawas. He stood up and walked into a room. A moment later he appeared with an old lamp on his right hand.
Abeydron rose from his seat and extended his hands to take the lamp. But Abunawas quickly hid the lamp behind his back. "No, nobody can touch this lamp," he said.
Abeydron looked at the lamp. His eyes were widely open. He looked very much interested in it. "Will you let me touch it, Abu ? I'll give you a lot of money," he begged.
"No. If you touch or rub it, you'll get a lot more than that you'll give me," said Abunawas. "Anyway, I'll let you touch this lamp if you do what I tell you."
"What should I do ?" asked Abeydron.
"Don't tell anybody that you touch the lamp. Otherwise, the genie will get angry with me. If anybody comes, you have to hide yourself. Okay ?" explained Abunawas.
Abeydron nodded his head in agreement. Abunawas handed the lamp to Abeydron. At the moment they heard footsteps approaching. They both looked outside.
"Quick, slip under the table!" said Abunawas to Abeydron.
Abeydron hid under the table with the old lamp in his hands. A moment later the king entered the house.
"Abu, I heard two interesting stories about you," said the king.
"What are they, your Majesty ?"
"First, people say that you have a genie that steals people's money. Second, they say that you have Aladin's lamp. Which one is right ?" asked the king.
"Your Majesty, actually no one is right."
"But, the rumours have spread widely all over the country !"
"I've been slandered, your Majesty," answered Abunawas smilingly.
"Why do you smile, Abu ?" asked the king.
"As A MATTER OF FACT, I have the lamp and may be the genie !" answered Abunawas Quickly.
"What do you mean ?" King Aaron looked confused.
Abunawas pulled up the TABLE CLOTH. King Aaron saw Abeydron, with a lamp, hiding under the table.
"These are the genie and the lamp, your Majesty," answered Abunawas smilingly.
"That's Abeydron, Abu !" said King Aaron.
"Yes, your Majesty. He is the person who made the false story about me. He told people that I have a thief genie. Then I made another story about the Aladin's lamp to trip him," Abunawas explained.
King Aaron laughed at the poor minister. Abeydron was so IRRITATED to learn that he was trapped by Abunawas. He came out from his hiding place and dropped the lamp to the floor. The other four men laughed at him.
