"He will put you in a cage again," said the other birds. "That will not matter if I can make the Emperor happy," said the Nightingale. All the servants seem so sad that their Emperor was sick. The Nightingale flew out of the forest, over the palace walls, threw the inner gardens and into an open window palace. He flew through the palace until he came to the Emperor's bedroom. There, it lit on the bedpost and began to sing. What sweet music from such a tiny bird. The Emperor opened his eyes in amazement. He thought he had been dreaming until the Nightingale sang again. At that moment, the Emperor started to regain his health. "Thank you little Nightingale. You have given me a gift with your music. I feel better already." The doctors stared in amazement at how fast the Emperor began to get better "I will stay if you like said the Nightingale," though he did not know how he could sing if he was to be caged. "No, I am the one to be caged," said the Emperor. "It is expected by my people that I will always be able to be seen in my palace. Your music made me feel like I was free and able to enjoy the outside world like I did before I became Emperor. But, I cannot cage you again. You must be free so you can sing for everyone's enjoyment." The Emperor ordered the Lord Chamberlain to open the bedroom window so the bird could leave. "Take your freedom," said the Emperor. "But, please come back and sing for me again. Now that I have heard your beautiful music, I cannot live without hearing it again." Thus it was that every night afterwards, the Nightingale would leave the forest, fly over the outer gardens, over the palace walls, through the inner gardens and into the Emperor's window. The Emperor never again tried to cage the Nightingale. He realized that the bird needed his freedom if he was to be able to creative and make beautiful music. The Emperor would lie in his bed and listen to the beautiful music, but before going to sleep, he always made certain his servants put the bedroom window up, so the bird could fly out and go back to his home.
