Pirates are coming from the sea. They decide to pillage the nearest village. But it's just a small one. What a bad luck: only peasants here.
And an Inn...
To save his life and the lives of his loved ones, one of the folks tells the pirates about a secret treasure hidden in the Inn.
"The Innkeeper. He has the key" - he says.
Hunger of gold and jewels is stronger (just a little bit) than hunger of blood in these pirates. So they storm the Inn and capture the Innkeeper for asking.
"What I want you to know before we start" - says the Captain - "is that I get a really bad temper when people make me ask twice. So, where is the treasure?"
The Innkeper says: "I can grant you there's no treasure here. It's just that ruffian peasant. He wants to save his life, and throws me in instead!"
"That was a bad idea you had, Innkeper." - says the Captain, with a cold grin on his face. Then, to his men: "bring in the chains!"
After a short work, and a lot of screaming and whining, the Innkeper capitulated.
"You see, it wasn't that difficult, after all." - grins the Captain, with golden sparkles in his eyes, while his fellow pirate goes down the rope to get the treasure...
