       One day, Hurashima, a young Japanese fisherman, saw some boys playing with a turtle(乌龟). They were cruel boys and were torturing the poor animal. Hurashima went up to them and offered them all the money he had on him for the turtle.
  The boys agreed to sell it to him. Then Hurashima immediately set the animal free and it swam out to sea.
  A few weeks later, Hurashima was out at sea fishing from his boat when he heard a voice calling to him. It was the turtle he had rescued.
  “Climb onto my back,” the turtle told him, “and I will take you to meet the Lord of the Seas. He wants to thank you for what you did for me.”
  Hurashima climbed onto the turtle’s back and soon arrived at a great castle on the seabed. The Lord of the Seas welcomed him and invited him to stay in the castle.
  “I am giving you the greatest gift of all,” he said, “but I cannot tell you what it is.”
  Hurashima stayed in the castle for many years and enjoyed all the pleasures of life. Then he became homesick and wanted to return home.
  The Lord of the Seas warned Hurashima that he would lose the present he had been given if he left the castle.
  Hurashima, who still did not know what the present was, said that it didn’t matter. He wanted to return to his home more than to keep the present.
  The turtle carried him back to land where he found that everything had changed. His village was gone and all his family and friends were long since dead.
  Then suddenly, he felt himself growing older. Within a few days, he aged many years. Soon he realized that the Lord of the Seas’ gift had been eternal youth. However, he did not regret leaving the castle. Instead he regretted coming back home so late. He didn’t want eternal youth. All he wanted was to stay with his family and friends as long as possible.
