Once three friends were travelling through a forest. On the way they found a purse of gold. They became very happy and decided to divide the gold equally among themselves. They felt hungry and sent one of them to a nearby town to bring food. In his absence they plotted to kill him on his return and divide the gold between themselves. On the other hand, the man who had gone to the town, ate the food himself and mixed poison in that of his companions to have the whole gold to himself.
When he returned, the two men killed him. But before dividing the gold, they ate the poisoned food and died soon after. So none of them could get the gold.
