ABOUT THE FISHERMAN AND HIS WIFE

Fisherman with his wife lived in a crappy down shack near the sea. The fisherman went every day to the sea and fished. And he sat one day at angling, and everyone was looking at shiny waves - sat Yes lolled surrounded.

Suddenly his rod was plunged to the bottom of the deep, and when he began to pull out, then dragged along with it and a big flounder.

And told him Rybin: "Hark thee, fisherman, please liberate me: I'm not a real flounder, I am but an enchanted Prince. Well, what is it to you that you make me eat? I don't like Prius; better throw me back into the water again, and let me space". - "Well, " said the man, " why are you and so many words spent; I would, of course, were released this fish, which panacea can speak". And with those words, he released the fish into the water, and went to flounder at the bottom, leaving behind him in the water a long streak of blood. Looked fisherman, and went home to his wife in their hovel.

"Well, husband, " said the wife, " have you caught nothing?" "No, " said the man, " today I caught a flounder, and she told me that she doesn't flounder, and he was an enchanted Prince, I sent her away again into the sea." - "So do you have nothing begged?" said the wife. "No, what should I wish for?" - "Ah, " said the wife, " but we so badly to live in this hovel, and stench, and filth we have plenty; begged us her hut better. Go Yes went back, the sea tell her that we need a nicer house, and she probably will give it to us". - "Ah, " said the man, " well I'll go run around!" "Yes you're caught her again on the will of the released - for you it probably will make it."

Didn't want the fisherman to go, but didn't want the wife to argue with - and he went to the sea.

When he came to the sea, the sea was dark, and the waves are not so shone like the morning. He came and said:

Fish, fish, Rybina,
You plaice!
With a request to you wife
Against the will send me!

Came to him flounder and said, "Well, what do you want?" - "Oh, " said the man, " I thee today, caught, wife-my says I must have got something yourself to beg. Does not want further, it is more to live in a hovel, hut wants to live go. - "Well, go, said the fish, all of you will be".

So the man went home and saw his wife-it is not in the cabin, and place of the huts is elegant house, and his wife sitting in front of the hut on the bench.

And took his wife by the hand, and said to him: "Come out here and look - now we live it will be much better."

So they went into the house: in the house a spacious hall and a large room, and porouchik where their bed is, and a closet with a pantry, and everywhere the shelves and on the shelves-it abundantly trained, and tin, and copper utensils - everything you need. And behind the house a small courtyard with chickens and ducks, and a small garden with herbs and vegetables. "Look, " said the wife, " isn't it good?" "Yes, " said the man, " we now live happily ever after". - "But look," said the wife. Then they had supper and went to sleep.

It was week two, and said to his wife: "Hark thee, hubby, house-we are very close, and yard and garden too small; your flounder could us a little more of the house to give. I would like to live in a large stone castle; stupica to flounder, ask that gave us a stone castle". - "Ah, wife, wife! Rybak said. "We in the house well. Well, how are we going to live in the castle?" - "Oh, what do you see? Go to the flounder: she can do it". "No, wife! Rybak said. - Flounder gave us the house; I do not like it straight again to go, he may get angry". "Yes, go away! said the wife. - She can do it and will do it willingly. Go!"

The man as it was hard on the heart, and he didn't want to go; he said to himself: "the right thing to do!" - and finally it went.

When he came to the sea, the sea was pretty dark and was blue-gray and there was already so bright and green as before, but still didn't worry. Then he came to me and said:

Fish, fish, Rybina,
You plaice!
With a request to you wife
Against the will send me!

"Well, what else does she want?" said the fish. "Oh, " said the man, without embarrassment, she wants to live in a large stone castle". - "Go to her, there she stands before the door," said the flounder. Turned fisherman to the house, began to walk up and sees before him a large stone Palace, and his wife is standing on the porch and going to enter the Palace; and he took him by the hand and said, "Come with me".

Come in and see what all floors in the castle is lined with marble everywhere and a lot of servants, which were set before them the door; and the wall-all glittered upholstered with beautiful Wallpapers and everywhere in the chambers and chairs, and tables, gilded, and crystal chandeliers descend from the ceiling, and everywhere carpets spread out; everywhere the tables groaning with food and the best wines.

And behind the castle is a large courtyard with stables and barn; and the crews in sheds are the best. Was there moreover a large and beautiful garden with beautiful flowers and fruit trees, and the Park stretched at least a mile from the castle, full of deer, wild goats, and hares, and all that your heart desires.

"Well, " said the wife, " is not this beautiful?" "Oh Yes! Rybak said. - That's where we stop and start to live in this wonderful castle; now we have just enough". - "But look, let's think," said the wife. With this they went to bed.

The next morning the wife woke up first, when it is quite light, and from his bed he looked down into the fertile country, which stretched around the castle.

The husband is still asleep and did not stir, and she pushed his elbow, said: "Husband, get up and just look out of the window. He nudemales me - why wouldn't we want to be the king over all this country. Just go to your fish, say you want to be kings". - "Oh, mother, ' said the man, " how is it we will be kings for? I don't want to be king." - "Well, if you can't be king, I can be the Queen. Go to your fish and tell him that I want to be Queen." - "Ah, wife! Well, where the hell can you be the Queen? I could not dare!" - "And why not say? - shouted the wife. - Now go - I must be the Queen!"

So the man went from his wife and was very embarrassed by the fact that his wife should want to be Queen. "Oughtn't strike would not!" he thought to himself. And didn't want to go to sea, but he went all the same. And when he came to the sea, the sea was dark grey, and worried, and its waters were muddy.

He stood on the shore and said:

Fish, fish, Rybina,
You plaice!
With a request to you wife
Against the will send me!

"Well then, what does she want?" said the fish. "Ah, " said the man, " but the wife wants the Queen to be!" - "Go home, she is," said the flounder.

So the man went home and sees that the castle grew to become much more extensive, and the gate of the castle is large, beautiful, and at the entry door is a guard, and everywhere around so many soldiers with drums and trumpets. He entered the Palace, and saw everywhere marble and gold, and velvet, and large chests with gold. Opened before him wide open doors and halls, where the whole court was assembled, and he saw his wife on the high Golden throne with diamonds, large Golden crown, and in her hands the scepter of pure gold with precious stones, and on each side of her six girls in a row, one another is beautiful.

He stood before his wife and said, "Well, now, wife, you are now the Queen was!" "Yes, " she said, " now I am king!"

He stood against her, hesitated, stared at her and said, "what, wife, well I suppose in Queens to be? Tea, now nothing will!" "No, Frederick, " said the wife with anxiety - I missed to be a Queen and not want more. Know your fish and tell him that I am now the Queen, and I want to be Emperor". - "Ah, wife! Well, what do you want to be Emperor!" "Husband! Go to your fish: I want to be Emperor!" - "Oh, no! answered the fisherman. Kaiser she can't do, and I told her about it and the words to say do not dare; for kings much, and Kaiser one! Probably know that you can't she Kaiser to make - and can't!" - "What is it? I'm the Queen and you're my husband - and dare I to argue? Now went there! Could I fish the Queen to do, can do and Kaiser! Hear, I want to be Emperor! Now go to your fish!"

So he had to go. And Iguchi to the sea, he got worried and thought to myself: "It's a bad thing coming! Kaiser wanted to be - it is absolutely shameless! Tired of her shit to rebenka!"

In these thoughts he came to the sea; and the sea is quite black and swollen, and walked him foaming waves, and the wind whistled, so that the fisherman was scared. He stood on the shore and said:

Fish, fish, Rybina,
You plaice!
With a request to you wife
Against the will send me!

"Well, what now?" said the fish. "Oh, flounder-mother! Wife something to be Emperor wants!" - "Go to it, ' said the fish, " it will."

So the man went home and sees a huge castle, all of polished marble with alabaster statues and gilded decorations. Before entering the castle marching soldiers, the trumpets and beat the drums; and inside the castle of the barons and Earls and Dukes around instead of servants: they are in front of him and the door was unlocked (and the doors of pure gold!). And when he entered the hall, he saw his wife on the throne high head, cast gold; on her head a Golden crown in three cubits the height thereof, all studded with diamonds and yakhonta; in one hand she has a sceptre and in the other state; and on both sides of the throne are two rows of guards, one more beautiful than the next, and built for growth - from the huge of versely to the smallest dwarf, with a little.

And before the throne there are princes and Dukes.

Became the wife before the husband and said, "Well, Catherine, you're now the Kaiser?" "Yes, now I am Emperor!" He looked at her, admired and said, "I suppose, wife, it is good to be Emperor?" - "Well, what did you become? said the wife. I now Kaiser, and want to be Pope. Go, ask the fish". - "Ah, wife! What more do you want? Dad you can't: dad one baptized for the whole world! This and rebenka can't do." "Husband! - she said. - I want to be a daddy! Now go to the sea! Today, I want to be a daddy!" "No, wife, that I dare not to say to your fish! It is not good, and too boldly: dad, can't you flounder to do!" - "If I could Kaiser to do, will be able and dad! said the wife. - Now went to the sea! I have Kaiser, and you're my husband! Go or not?" Was scared and he went, and quite lost heart; trembling, feverish, and the knees themselves collapsed while standing.

When he came to the sea, a strong wind blew from the sea, urging the clouds in the sky, and was dim in the West: the leaves are plucked from the trees, and the sea was splashing and carrying on against the shore, and were visible to him in the distance the ships rocked and swayed in the waves. But the sky was still noticeable patch of blue, though clearly it was that southern storm is coming. He went ashore, completely terrified, and said:

Fish, fish, Rybina,
You plaice!
With a request to you wife
Against the will send me!

"Well, what now? said the fish. "Oh, " said the man, " she wants to be Pope!" - "Go to it is her will," said the flounder.
He went back and when he came, he saw before him a great Church, with palaces all round. Barely made it through the crowd of people.

And inside the Church everything was lit by thousands and thousands of candles, and his wife in the clothes of pure gold was sitting on a high throne, and on her head she had three great crowns of gold. Around her crowded a lot of the clergy, and on either side of the throne stood two rows of lights - from the big, thick with good beam, to the small, petty securock. And emperors and kings stood before her on his knees and kissed her Shoe.

"Catherine, " said the man, looking at her, " so you see, daddy?" "Yes, I now daddy!"

He looked, looked at her, and it seemed to him that he looks at the sun red. A little later, and he says to her: "Ah, wife, well I suppose you to be Pope?" As she sat before him, straight and motionless, as if made of wood and did not move, was untouched. And he said: "Wife! Well, now, tea, happy? Now you and dad really nothing more than can't be?" - "We will see about that," said the wife.

And then they went to bed; but she was still not satisfied, and her greed would not let her sleep, and all the while she was thinking what she should like to be.

Husband, navegables per day, slept well and soundly, and wife, however, could not sleep and all he tossed and turned from side to side, and all were invented, why would she still want and nothing they couldn't invent.

Meanwhile, the case went to the sunrise, and when she saw the dawn, then rolled to the edge of the bed and stared out the window at the rising sun...

"Oh, " she thought, " why am I not able also to command and the sun, and the moon, so they ascended?"

"Husband and husband! "she said, and nudged him with his elbow in the ribs. "Wake up! Go again to your fish and tell him I want to be God himself!"

Husband not yet awakened from a dream, yet so scared of these words, that he fell out of bed. It seemed to him that he was right; he began to wipe his eyes and said, "Ah, wife, what have you said?" "Hubby, " she said, " I can't get neither the sun nor the moon, so they ascended, and to see that you can't, as the sun and the moon back, and still, even for an hour will not, is not yet given to me will be the most dominating and the sun, and the moon!"

And so it looked that his frost on his skin. "Now go in there! I want to be God himself!" - "Ah, wife! - exclaimed the man, and fell on his knees to her. "But this flounder can't do! The Kaiser and the Pope she still could you make; so I ask you, abresumis kidding dad!"

She was furious, her hair was vzjeroshenij on the head, and she screamed at the top of his voice: "don't you dare me to say so! Don't you dare! Now get out of here!"

Then he quickly gathered and ran to the sea like a maniac. And the sea was raging storm, so that he was barely on his feet held: the house and the trees were falling, and the mountains trembled, and fragments of rocks, breaking off, down into the sea, and the sky was black-black, and thunder, and lightning shone, and the waves went over the sea, like mountains, crowned with white foam. Reaching the coast, he cried out in a loud voice, and yet could not even hear his own words:

Fish, fish, Rybina,
You plaice!
With a request to you wife
Against the will send me!

"Well, what more does she want?" said the fish. "Ah, " said he, " she wants to be God himself". - "Go to her and she again sits in his shack".

They are now sitting Yes to this very day sea blue glance.
