  1. The servant arrives to his master's house white and trembling.
    'Sir', he says 'I saw Death at the marketplace and she made a threatening gesture at me'
    The master lends his horse and gives him some money: 'Take this and go to Samarra'.
    So the servant flees.
    Later, that afternoon, the master sees Death at the marketplace and says:
    'This morning you made a threatening gesture to my servant'
    Death replied: 'It was not a threatening gesture, it was a start of surprise for I saw him faraway from Samarra, and this afternoon I have to pick him up there'.
