An old woman lost her sight and called a doctor for help. She said, "If you heal me, I will give you a large sum of money." And she said this in front of many people.
The doctor agreed, and he came every day to put medicine in her eyes. But each time he came, he stole something from her house.
Finally, he stole all of her valuable things. Then he gave her new medicine and healed her.When he was done, he demanded that she give him the money.
But the woman saw that her things were gone, and said no.
The doctor brought a judge to the woman's house. He thought, "I will certainly win such a simple case."
The judge asked the woman, "Did you promise to give him money." The doctor said, "She did. Many people heard."
The woman said sadly, "It is true," and the doctor smiled.
But then she said, "Before I lost my sight, though, I saw valuable things in my house. Many people also saw them. But now I don't see them. So the doctor has not really healed my eyes."
The judge decided that the woman was right.
