One afternoon, a farmer was swimming in a lake with his sons. He was speculating about his careless boys, and if they would take care of his land. Suddenly, he felt a powerfully sharp pain on his back. As he turned, his eyes met with a bull shark. He frantically tried to swim away, but the shark zoomed after him. The farmer, who knew he might die, thoughtfully yelled to his sons, “Boys, there is hidden treasure in my fields!” His sons frightfully jumped out of the water, at the sight of a shark, and raced all the way to the fields, not once considering their poor father. They dug and dug and did not find any treasure, which started a big fight. Finding some seeds near the fields, the brothers,  who were so foolish, started throwing them at each other, scattering them all over the field. Thankfully, they stopped fighting, because they figured that they needed to help their father. The boys rushed back to the lake and found their dad was no longer alive. They were terribly sad to lose their ‘’Pa’’ who was a wonderful treasure to them. After that, they always helped in the fields, and they had the best crop anyone could ever have. They realized that the treasure was the fruit of their own labor.
