The Emperor Scursuni—Lu ’Mperaturi Scursuni

Once there were two friends, and one of them had a son while theother had no children at all. They both loved this son very much.The two friends were important merchants who sailed the seas and visited many kingdoms. One day the friend who didn’t have a son had to depart on a voyage, and the young man asked him and his father whether he could embark with him and learn something about sailing and trading. But both the father and godfather refused to give their permission. However, the son insisted so much that both men finally had to yield and agreed to let him depart.
