The Happy Prince and Other Tales
In a town full of suffering poor people, a swallow who was left behind after his flock flew off to Egypt for the winter  meets the statue of the late "Happy Prince",  who in reality has never experienced true sorrow, for he lived in a palace where sorrow was not allowed to enter. As the winter comes and the Happy Prince is stripped of all of his beauty, his lead heart breaks when the swallow dies as a result of his selfless deeds and severe cold. This is affirmed by God, and they live forever in His "city of gold"  and garden of Paradise. A nightingale overhears a student complaining that the professor's daughter will not dance with him, as he is unable to give her a red rose;  a lizard, a butterfly and a daisy laugh at the student for doing so. The nightingale visits all the rose-trees in the garden, and one of the roses tells her there is a way to produce a red rose, but only if the nightingale is prepared to sing the sweetest song for the rose all night with her heart pressing into a thorn, sacrificing her life. The Selfish Giant owns a beautiful garden which has 12 peach trees and lovely fragrant flowers , in which children love to play after returning from the school. The garden falls into perpetual winter.

Я пыталась помочь умирающему, - объясняла Росио. - Но сам он, похоже, этого не. Он… это кольцо… он совал его нам в лицо, тыкал своими изуродованными пальцами. Он все протягивал к нам руку - чтобы мы взяли кольцо. Я не хотела брать, но мой спутник в конце концов его. А потом этот парень умер.
Конечно, нет! - возмущенно ответила девушка. Она смотрела на него невинными глазами, и Беккер почувствовал, что она держит его за дурака. - Да будет. На вид вы человек состоятельный. Дайте немножко денег, чтобы я могла вернуться домой.
Глаза его расширились. Это явно не было составной частью плана. - У них там прямо-таки дискотека! - пролопотал Бринкерхофф.
