ONCE upon a time in North Sumatra, there was a family. The father was a farmer. His wife was pregnant. They had been waiting to have a baby, and they were so happy that the baby would be born soon. When the baby was born, the couple were extremely happy. They had a baby boy. They named him Bagas Marhusor.

When Bagas Marhusor was born, a holy man said that the baby who was born on that day would become a great man. He would be famous for his power.

However, people did not think that the baby was Bagas Marhusor. They did not think that Bagas Marhusor was the baby whom the holy man predicted.

Why? It was because the queen was also pregnant. And the baby was born at the same time Bagas Marhusor was born. people think that the holy man was talking about the future of the prince, the king's son.

Bagas Marhusor and the prince grew as young men. They did not know each other. Bagas Marhusor was only common people. He never visited the palace.

Bagas Marhusor was a kind, polite, and helpful young man. He also studied martial arts from some experts. He was very skillful. He only used his martial arts skill when he was fighting bad people. His village was safe from the criminals. All the villagers were very grateful to have him.
