Se trata de un hombre que decide asumir todas las consecuencias con el fin de lograr su objetivo: El Rey termina accediendo y da una carabela al hombre.


Todos los personajes carecen de nombres explicitos. A short but intriguing story that is a little too short.

I actually tripled checked to make sure that I had not missed something.
