A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was different each week, so the magician was able to do the same tricks over and over again, and the audience wouldn't know. There was only one problem: the captain's bratty son saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood, he started shouting in middle of the show: "Look, it's not the same hat!" "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table." "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?" The magician was furious but couldn't do anything. It was, after all, the captain's son.

One day the ship had an accident and sank. The magician found himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the sea with, as fate would have it, the captain's son. They stared at each other with hatred but didn't talk. This went on for a day and then another. On the third day, the boy could not hold back anymore: "Okay, I give up. Where's the boat?"
