Zoren, the Witty Prince

Nagravcan is a famous kingdom in the South. This is a vast kingdom of the Blosco. King Blosco has three handsome princes, but since childhood they compete in almost everything that they almost forget they are brothers. They grow as if they are not related to one another. Nard, the eldest feels that he has the voice and the power being the first child, but Zoren and Curvo never

listen to him because they believe they are in the same position for they all come from the Blosco.

Their misunderstanding continues until they become full grown and this almost weakens the kingdom. Their men do not know what to do because they differ in their instruction and management.

One day, King Mancho from the west, whose only purpose in life is to widen his empire, comes together with his men to grab the kingdom from them. They are about to be defeated because their soldiers are divided. Good enough the second prince, Zoren, realizes that pride and greed do not help. He soon forgets his hatred to his brothers and calls them to a secret room in the palace to discuss about something they can do to save their kingdom. Zoren is actually exposed to battles because he has the wit and can easily find tactics, the very reason why he is made the king’s right hand and his being in that position is one of the reasons why his brothers get jealous. Zoren is one of a kind. He fights in a very different way. He does not want blood to shed during battles. He uses techniques that soften the hearts of his enemies.

Afraid of the group that comes to conquer them, Nard and Curvo go to the room where Zoren is waiting. Zoren gives his instruction and the two follows without hesitation. They bring their men to a safe area and allow the invaders to spend all their weapons until they run out of these and become

exhausted. When the Bloscos notice the enemies’ failure, Zoren speaks from the topmost part of the palace, saying, “We are born with nothing except our lives. When we come into this world, we are even unclothed, meaning the only important possession we have is life. Why should we waste our life for a non- important reason? Making our territories vast or wide does not speak about success. Remember that this life will perish and by the time we come to that part, we can’t bring what we own here to the place where we will be finally destined. Brothers, why shouldn’t we live in peace and harmony and help one another to raise a better race of men? We all come from the same source, and the author of life is in pain whenever He sees us in chaos. He himself is the living example of humility and simplicity. Remember, He was born in the manager without anything to cover His body on that very cold night. Have we heard any word from Him blaming His parents about the kind of birth he had? Why don’t we live in the same way? Let’s join our forces and donate our resources to help our kingdoms and the kingdoms in the east and the north. “

With his words, the enemies become speechless. Abashed of their actions, they all kneel to show that they agree. From that day on, the four kingdoms stand as one. It stands strong and productive because of its people’s unity.
