A wood chopper that chops down trees was walking in the forest to trie and find another tree that he has to find. Then suddenly he slipped in to a deep river and lost his axe as he slid into the river and started crying because that was his best and luckiest axe and he had lost it.
Mercury the messenger god was watching and flew down to earth and said "dont worry I'll get it for you." So Mercury dived down to the bottom of the river and came up with a solid gold axe and said "here's your axe." But it was made of solid gold the wood chopper said "that's not my axe. It must be someone else's that they left there so it would be stealing if I stole it"
"Sorry I must of got the wrong axe" said Mercury "I'll try again." So down Mercury went and he was up a few seconds later with a silver axe. "Sorry that must be the wrong axe again"
"Hmmm tell me what does this axe look like?"
"It has a plain wooden handle"
So Mercury went down once again and came up with the right axe and the wood chopper said "thank you that's my axe" and went and got it.
As he was walking back home Mercury said "I am so impressed with your honesty that you can have my two special axes gold and silver for free." He then went to tell everybody what happened and an another wood chopper heard about this so he waited until everybody was gone and then he threw his axe into the river and cried "oh no that was the wrong axe." Mercury was watching this so flew down to earth and said
"don't worry I'll get it" so he dived down to the bottom of the river and came up with a gold axe. The man said" yes that's my axe" he said and dived to get it, but Mercury threw it up in the air and the man landed head first on the shallow rocks. " Honesty is what I expect" said Mercury.
