Yellow Fingers

There was a king whose lands were being invaded by a rival kingdom and the king desperately needed to send a request for re-enforcements from a close ally. The only problem was that he couldn’t spare many men and there was tribe of fierce savages that lived in the valley between the king and his ally that would attack anyone trying to cross their territory. Very little was known about this tribe because few men had encountered them and lived to tell about it. The tribe was known only as the Yellow Fingers.

Having little other choice, the king calls upon his greatest knight to ride through the Valley of the Yellow Fingers to request re-enforcements from their ally and save the kingdom from utter destruction.

That afternoon, the knight walks over the plains, into the forest, and down into the Valley of the Yellow Fingers. The knight is immediately ambushed by the Yellow Fingers and although he fights bravely, he is eventually overwhelmed.

The following day, the king, not having received word from his knight, knows that the knight has probably failed in his mission. So, the king decides to send the knight’s squire.

That afternoon, the squire walks over the plains, into the forest, and down into the Valley of the Yellow Fingers. The squire is immediately ambushed by the Yellow Fingers and although he fights bravely, he is eventually overwhelmed.

The following day, the king, not having received word from the squire or the knight, is not really sure what to do and cannot spare any men from his army. So, the king decides to send a lowly page boy from his court. The king tells the page to go that night, and cross the valley while the Yellow Finger are sleeping.

That night, the page walks over the plains, into the forest, and down into the Valley of the Yellow Fingers. As soon as the page steps into the valley, he is immediately ambushed by the Yellow Fingers. The page fights bravely, and kills every single one of the Yellow Fingers that try to attack him. He delivers the request for re-enforcements and saves his kingdom from destruction.

The moral of this story being:

“Let your pages do the walking through the Yellow Fingers.”
