Crystalline Kahlyt, The
this fable was written on the planet M'haeli, and centered on an unusual kahlyt that could lay rybat crystal eggs. The farmer who owned the kahlyt became gradually wealthy by selling the eggs in town, but his wife became impatient. Rather than simply letting nature run its course, she cut the kahlyt open to obtain all of its crystal. Unfortunately, all she found inside were the innards of a regular kahlyt. Thus, in her haste to become richer, she found no immediate wealth and eliminated the source of her current income. Over time, the moral of this story infiltrated many parts of the galaxy, and many beings spoke of "not killing the kahlyt that laid the rubat eggs."
