The Roman Kingdom was growing bigger. Roman soldiers controlled the cities that they won. Next, the Romans won a small village on River Danube. Seeing the cruelty of the Roman rulers, a poor villager decided to meet the Roman Ministers.
The Villager was an ugly, hairy man. He had thick eyebrows and lips. He had a crooked nose and a squint in his eye! But, he bravely, faced the Roman Ministers. Everyone wondered what this ugly Villager would say.
The Villager asked the Romans, “Why are you killing everyone and taking their lands? Why are you robbing the people and living in style? People were so afraid that they have left their homes and are hiding. The Romans are spoiling everything, instead of making life better.”
“Please go back! We do not like the way the Romans
treat us! We were happy before you Romans came!”
The Romans were amazed at his wonderful speech. The Villager was right!
They made the Villager, the Governor, and called the Roman soldiers back! They also wanted his speech written down for others to read.
The city on the River Danube was happy again.
Do not judge anyone by the way he looks.
