Once upon a time, there was a very rich man. His wealth was gold and silver. But his blue beard made him look ugly and the people ran away when they saw him. The neighbour of this rich man was a woman who had two very beautiful daughters. This man asked to marry one of her daghters, but none agreed to marry him. This refusal was not ony because he was blue-bearded but also because he had married many women formerly and no one knew their fate.
One day, this man invited the mother and her two daughters to spend a week in one of his country houses. Soon after some dances and feasts, the younger girl began to notice that the man's beard was not very blue and that he is an honest man. Therefore, she changed her mind and wished to accept his offer.
Soon after their return to the city, marriage was carried out. One day the blue-bearded man told his wife that he was obliged to travel. He gave her the house keys before travelling and cautioned her not to enter the small room, otherwise he will be angry with her.
The friends of this wife waited anxiously for the absence of the blue -bearded man to visit their friend at her home. They began to wander through all the rooms and envied their friend's happiness. The wife wanted to know the contents of the small room careless of her husband's caution.
No sooner had her friends left than the wife of the blue-bearded man took the key and opened the small room trembling. What a frightening scene! The floor of the room was covered with clotted blood! The blood of many dead women hung on the walls! The wife's fear became so great that the room key fell of her hand. After recovering her consciousness, she picked the key up, closed the door and went up to her room seriously troubled. When she saw the key stained with blood, she tried to clean it , but in vain.
The blue-bearded man came back home. His wife was happy to see him and did her best to show her happiness. Next day, the husband asked his wife to give him the keys. She did so, but her hand was shaking. He guessed what had happened, and asked: "Where is the key of the small room ? Why it isn't with the other keys?" She ansered: " Perhaps it is up on the table". He ordered her angrily:" Bring it soon". When she brought it, he looked at it carefully and said mockingly:" You wanted to enter the small room. Ok. That is well, my lady".
"You'll enter it and take your place just near the ladies whom you have seen there".
The poor wife threw herself at her husband's feet begging him to forgive her, but his heart was more solid than the rock; he said to her: "You must die immediately, my lady" She answered: "If it is a must, then give me a little time to pray". He anserwed: " Ok. I'll give you half an hour, no more". When she was alone, she called her sister who was living with her and said: "My sister, please go up the tower to see if our brothers have come yet. They promised to visit me today. If you see them point to them to hasten".
The sister went up immediately to the highest point of the tower; but the blue-bearded husband was carrying a knife and crying at his wife: "Come down quickly or I'll go up to you". His continous loud crying shook the house. The poor wife got down weeping. At this moment, the sister saw two knights and pointed to them to hasten.
The blue-bearded man lifted his hand up to kill his wife, but stopped suddenly when he heard strong knocking at the door. The two brothers rushed at the blue-bearded man and stabbbed him to death with their swords.
The poor lady thanked her brothers very much. She then married and honest man who helped her forget the painful days that she spent with her evil blue bearded husband.
Its like a horror movie

horror movie, hhhhhhhh, it seems but I think it mixes reality with imagination, may guide us to think carefully before accepting serious offer, No it's not dangerous to tell it to children because they can see more terrifying things in movies. I'm pleased to see u here somehow, thanks to all your comments,
Honesty is indeed the most important merit in our life ,,, though you can't tell if one is really honest or not cuz it's so hard to get into others minds and heatrs ... it's about what you see,what you get!!
