The first thing you grab will make you rich." The young man was so happy to hear from Kannon. As he left the temple, he stumbled upon a stone. Bump! Falling to the ground, he touched some straw. 'Is this the first thing I grabbed as Kannon told me? I don't think the straw will make me rich.' He wondered and kept walking when a horsefly flew to him. The young man grabbed the horsefly and tied it with the straw he had. Walking along the road, a fine carriage pulled by cows approached him. A child sitting inside saw the horsefly tied with the straw and asked. "Can I have your horsefly?" "Sure! Here you are." The young man handed the horsefly to the child and a servant gave three oranges to the young man in appreciation for his kindness. 'I got oranges in exchange for the horsefly.' He murmured to himself and kept walking. By and by, he came upon a woman suffering from thirst by the roadside. "Take these oranges to soothe your thirst." The young man presented three oranges. The woman got her strength back after eating oranges. She gave him some beautiful fabric in appreciation for his kindness. 'Now I have beautiful fabric in exchange for the oranges.' The young man kept walking. Eventually, there was a man having trouble with a horse lying on the ground. "What happened?" The young man asked. "My horse is sick and unable to walk. I am on my way to town to exchange the horse for fabric. I need to get fabric today, otherwise I'll be in trouble." The man said anxiously. "Would you like to exchange my fabric for your horse?" The young man inquired. The man was grateful for the young man's offer. Accepting the exchange, the man left with the fabric. The young man gave water to the horse and rubbed its body with tender care. The horse got its energy back and stood. The horse seemed like a fine specimen. 'Now I got the horse in exchange for fabric.' He murmured to himself and kept walking with the horse. The young man approached a house from which people were moving out. The master of the house saw the young man and the fine horse as they were passing. "Young man, can you exchange your horse for my house and farm? I need to travel." The young man became rich with a big house and a farm in exchange for the horse. People called him ""a straw millionaire"" since he made a fortune from straw.
