7. Guówáng xiǎng: Hóuzi méi yěxīn, yòu jīling, ràng hóuzi lái dāng wèishì zuì bǎoxiǎn.
The king thought, "Monkeys have no ambition, plus they're smart. Let monkeys be my guard, that's safest."
8. Guówáng xiàlìng zhuōle jǐ zhǐ hóu zǐ huíqù, pài rén rìyè xùnliàn, hǎo dāng tā de tiēshēn wèishì.
The king ordered a few monkeys to be captured, and hired people to train them day and night, so as to be his personal guards.
9. Hóuzi men hěn cōngmíng, bùjiǔ jiù xuéhuì wǔ dāo káng qiāng, dāng qǐ guówáng de tiēshēn wèishì lái.
The monkeys were very smart, and before long had learned to wield knife and gun. They began to serve as the king's personal guard.
10. Hóuzi wèishì, zhōngxīn gěnggěng, bùxǔ rènhé rén jiējìn guówáng, jiù lián cāngyíng fēiguò yě huì gǎn zǒu.
The monkey guards were extremely devoted, and did not permit anyone to come near the king. They even chased away flies that flew too close.
11. Yītiān zhōngwǔ, guówáng shuìzhele, yī zhǐ wénzi wēng wēng de jiàozhe, zài guówáng tóu shàng fēi lái fēi qù.
One day around noon, while the king was asleep, a mosquito buzzed around the king's head.
12. Hóuzi jiàn gǎn bu zǒu wénzi, bùyóu dà nù, jǔ dāo kǎn qù, wén zǐ fēi zǒule, guówáng de nǎodai yě líle jiā.
The monkeys couldn't chase the mosquito away, and flew into a rage, raised a knife, and hacked at the mosquito. The mosquito flew away, and the king's head departed too.
... ... trollololol. So the moral of the story is........ Don't hire monkeys?!?!? Or maybe don't be paranoid? I dunno. This one is a little weird. >_>;;;;
