14.  There was a young man named Paul. When his father died, he left Paul a beautiful forest manor (庄园). However, before Paul could sell it for a lot of money, a lightning strike caused a fire that destroyed it. Watching the beautiful green trees turn into ash (灰烬) overnight, Paul felt his heart was broken.
  In order to bring back the forest manor's beauty, Paul tried to borrow money from a bank. But the bank refused him, for the bank didn't believe he could pay it back. Then he felt too sad to eat or drink. So he stayed in his room for days. His wife was worried about him and asked him to take a break outside.
  Paul went for a walk. When he turned the first corner, he saw a store with a huge crowd. It turned out that people were waiting in line to buy charcoal used for winter heating.
  Then Paul's eyes lit up. He ran home and asked some workers to process the forest's burnt ash into charcoal. As soon as his charcoal went on the market, it sold out quickly. Paul sold more than 1, 000 boxes of charcoal.
  The following year in spring, he spent the money buying a large number of young trees. After a few years, the forest manor that everyone thought had gone came to life again.
