In those days there lived a very old emperor who had three sons: Ching Cong, Cichi Ciang and Ciac Noris. One day, this hundred-year-old emperor - while his sons were messing around - told them that he wanted to live another hundred years, but he needed the living water from the magic land of the greatest dragon of all, Brus Uilis. When the three of them heard it, they hurried away, saying to their father, "We'll be back."
The emperor lived only a hundred years.
