ДЕЙСТВУЮЩИЕ ЛИЦА: a story-teller, a king, a painter.

One day the king showed his pictures to a great painter who lived in his country and asked:

King: I want to know what you think of my pictures. Do you like them? Am I a good painter or not?

Painter: My King? I think that your pictures are bad, and that you will never be a good painter.

Story-teller: The king was very angry and sent the painter to prison. After 2 years the king wanted to see the painter again.

King: I was angry with you, because you didn’t like my pictures. Now I forget all about it. You are a free man again, and I am your friend.

Story-teller: For many hours the king talked with the painter and even asked him for dinner. After dinner the king showed his pictures to the painter and asked:
