The Emperor’s Seed


Once there lived an old emperor who had no children. He couldn’t /could not choose his successor for a long time.
(could – прошедшая форма от can)



Then he called all the young people in the kingdom together and said, «I’ll give each one of you a seed today. I want you to go home, plant it, water it and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from this one seed.» A boy named Ling also got a seed. He came home and told his mother that he would grow the best plant.
(reported speech, при переходе их прошлого в будущее will меняется на would)



She helped him plant the seed. Every day he watered it but nothing grew.



A year passed and Ling took his empty pot to the palace while all the rest brought some beautiful plants. The emperor said, «Lying is the worst thing in the world. I gave you all spoilt seeds. Nothing grows from spoilt seeds.» So Ling became the new emperor.
(badworse-the worst)
