But da peopo hate da ali`i guy, an dey send guys to da odda place fo say, ‘We no like dis guy fo be our king.’
But da ali`i wen come king. Den he come back. He tell his worka guys fo come by him, da guys he wen give da money. He like find out how plenny money dey wen make.
Da first guy come an he say, ‘I wen get ten mo gold coins from da one you wen give me.’
