“Can I help you?” asked the shaman calmly.

“Yes, my wife get sick but I have no money to buy a medicine,” answered the husband.

The shaman thought for a while and replied, “Why don’t you go to the gold cave and take a a few gold.”

“Okay, thank you so much,” said the husband delighted.

“But, remember. You may only take the gold necessary,” the shaman reminded.
