El hijo ingrato

ENGLISH

The ungrateful son


Un hombre y su esposa, estaban sentados en el corredor, a la entrada de su casa, y tenían en su mesa un delicioso pollo asado para comerlo juntos. En eso el hombre vio que su anciano padre se acercaba, y rápidamente tomó el pollo y lo escondió, para que el anciano no pudiera coger nada de él. El viejito llegó, tomó una bebida y se marchó. Entonces el hijo quiso poner de nuevo el pollo en la mesa, pero cuando fue a cogerlo, lo que había era un enorme sapo, que se le lanzó a su cara y se quedó allí, y nunca se le despegó, y si alguien intentaba quitárselo, lo miraba maliciosamente como si estuviera a punto de lanzársele a su cara, así que nadie se aventuraba a tocarlo. Y el ingrato hijo quedó obligado a alimentar al sapo todos los días, porque si no él se alimentaba de su cara. Así, por su ingratitud. el hombre no volvió a tener descanso en su vida.
A man and his wife were once sitting by the door of their house, and they had a roasted chicken set before them, and were about to eat it together. Then the man saw that his aged father was coming, and hastily took the chicken and hid it, for he would not permit him to have any of it. The old man came, took a drink, and went away. Now the son wanted to put the roasted chicken on the table again, but when he took it up, it had become a great toad, which jumped into his face and sat there and never went away again, and if any one wanted to take it off, it looked venomously at him as if it would jump in his face, so that no one would venture to touch it. And the ungrateful son was forced to feed the toad every day, or else it fed itself on his face; and thus he went about the world without knowing rest.
