Do you remember those stories?
One has to be very careful to listen to these fairy tales from beginning to end. They are fairy tales full of unexpected events and unheard of miracles. It is easy for an inattentive and incautious listener to get lost in them, just as a certain boy lost his way in the wizarding forest. At midnight, all the paths and roads of this strange forest began to jump and dance with laughter, and they ran away from the boy, tangled, as many times as he wanted to step on one of them with his foot in order to return home. You have to be very careful when you enter a fairy forest, or when you are listening to truly magical fairy tales. Even the Persian, Arab, and Indian kings exerted their royal attention as they were told these strange and terrible and strange and incomprehensible tales.
So we ask for silence, because here the story begins!
