The Old Woman and The Healer
The Old Woman and The Healer :
An old woman whose eyes were inflamed called in a healer and he told her that the eyesight would become faultless again, provided she would pay a very expensive fee for his services.
She agreed and he insisted her to keep her eyes shut during the treatment at which time the healer stole all the old lady's furniture.
When he asked the woman for his fee, she refused to pay, so the healer took her to court. 'It's not true that he's made my eyes better,' the old lady told the judge.
They have got worse. Before, I could see everything in my house, now I can't see at all.'
