The five brothers
Five brothers, Pedro, Diego Juan, Jose and Manuel had a excellent life, but they wanted something more, a little adventure. So they embarked on a journey for 1 year and stopped at "a fork of five roads, just like the fingers on your hand" (Cole 776). Pedro assigned a road to each and said to meet up back here in 1 year. Soon each of the brothers had found and taken up a job. Pedro became a thief, Diego became a hunter, Juan learned to be a resuscitator, Jose, a bonesetter and Manuel, a fortune teller. They met up on the road and demonstrated their talents to each other. Now they were ready to see their father, who was pleased to see the boys and their new talents. Then a King from a faraway land called upon these five extraordinary brothers to save his daughter, who was a captive of the giant known as Old Long Arms. After five years of searching for help the king finally found some. Naturally the boys agreed. Will they succeed?
