Rate this:
Da Wei and his father were poor tenant farmers whose landlord, the local Magistrate, was a hard, greedy man. Da Wei's father had only one thing to leave Da Wei when he died -- a large rock taken from the ocean, given to him by a lonely old fisherman with the promise that one day, a light would shine from the rock and show the way to treasures beneath the sea. And one day, the light "did" blaze forth. After the crops were harvested, Da Wei went to visit the seaside village where the old fisherman had lived. Miraculously, the sea opened a path for him to follow. Bravely, he walked between walls of water until he came to a splendid mansion.

The only treasure he found there was a small orange kitten that seemed to like him, so he took it back to his farm. Every day, all day long, he worked his land, but before long, he began to find that his evening meal was ready for him to cook when he returned. Yet no one had been there. The kitten was always sitting contentedly on the windowsill.

How Da Wei discovered the kitten's secret, found a lovely bride for himself, and was able to thwart his corrupt landlord make an enchanting story fu
