A long time ago, there lived a very beautiful princess. Her name was Amarevi.
So many men came and proposed her for to be their wives. However, she rejected them. It was because she already loved one man. His name was Mahoseth. Unlike her who came from a royal family, Mahoseth was an ordinary man.

In the palace, there were four ministers who terribly wanted to marry the Princess Amarevi. It was not because they loved the Princess Ama revi, but they wanted to get her wealth. As the only child of the king, Princess Ama revi had lots of jewelries.
Those four ministers upset when they knew Princess Amarevi would marry with Mahoseth. They came to the king and told him some lies.

“Your Majesty, Mahoseth is not a good man. He will marry your daughter only to get her wealth,“ said one minister.
“It's true, Your Majesty. I also heard that he really wants to be the new king. He wants to kill you!“ said another minister.
The four ministers kept on telling to the King about how bad Mahoseth was. Sadly, the King finally believed what they said. He cancelled the wedding and even sent Mahoseth to jail! The princess kept on crying. She could not believe that her father would believe to those ministers.

“I have to prove to my father that Mahoseth is innocent,“ thought the princess.
She had a good plan. She asked those ministers to meet her. “I hope you can come to my room at nine o'clock,“ said the princess to the ministers.

They were happy when they heard the princess invited them. They did not know that the princess had set a plan.
The princess had asked some people to dig the floor. Later she covered the hole with some rug. On the top of the rug, she put a table with some jewelries. She hoped the ministers would be trapped inside the hole when holding the jewelry.
Finally, exactly at nine o'clock, those four ministers came to her room.

“Please come in,“ said the princess.
After the ministers were inside the room, the princess told them that she had to leave for a while.
“Please stay here, i'm going to do something and i'll be back soon. “After the princess left, those ministers saw beautiful jewelries on the table.

“Look at that table! we will get jewelry!“ said one minister.
They rushed to the table and suddenly they were trapped inside the hole! “Help. . . please help us!“ cried the ministers.
Meanwhile, the princess went to the king and told him that she trapped the ministers.
“Look! Those were trying to steal my jewelries,“ said the princess to the king.

The king was furious. He sent those four ministers to the jail. He then apologized to his daughter and Mahoseth. Later, he held the wedding party and since then Princess Amarevi and Mahoseth lived happily. Media Indonesia, 11/23/2014, page 20
