"Mom, how come we never get to eat meat?"said Satyabrata. His mother replied, "I can barely afford to feed you vegetables, how am I supposed to get meat?"
Satyabrata took matters into his own hands. He went out and killed a goose to eat.
Later, the King's army came looking for the missing goose. Angered, the King had Satyabrata arrested.
Satyabrata wondered what food they would serve him in prison. Goose, chicken, maybe lamb? He thought prison might not be too bad after all. The prison food was not that bad after all.
"I like it here" said Satyabrata happily.
Author's Note - I based this story on the Sacred Tales of India story titled "The Gander Eater" where Satyabrata desires meat but his widowed mother cannot afford it. He goes out and kills a gander, or a goose, and the King comes looking for him. In the story he is imprisoned and eventually is freed by his mothers prayers to the goddess Subachami. He is freed from prison and is then married to the king's daughter to live a life of wealth. In my story, since I only had 100 words, I changed it to where Satyabrata was happy in prison because they fed him meat, something he always wanted. I also thought to have him stay in prison because he was unhappy with his mother for being unable to afford meat.
