"A story over four hundred years ago...
In a certain country in the northern seas,
there was a man named Montblanc Noland.
Noland the Explorer's stories were always grand adventures that sounded like lies.
But the people of the village could never tell if they were true or not.
One time, Noland went on an expedition,
and came back to report to the king.
"I saw a mountain of gold on an island across the great seas."
To see for himself, the brave king took two thousand warriors
and crossed the great seas in his ship.
He fought powerful storms and huge sea monsters.
Finally, the king, Noland, and one hundred soldiers landed on the island.
But what they found there was nothing but jungle.
Noland was sentenced to death for his lies.
These were his last words.
"That's it! The mountain of gold sank into the ocean!!!" The king and the others were shocked.
Nobody believed Noland anymore, but he never stopped lying until he was dead."
