Aladdin's mother wanted her son to be happy. She asked the genie for something nice to give the sultan. The genie gave her a big, shiny ruby. Then, she went to the palace to talk to the sultan. The palace was very large and grand. The sultan had a lot of money. She waited outside the sultan's office for one whole day. Finally, the sultan spoke to her.
"Why do you wish to speak to me?" asked the sultan. "I am very busy. I will give you five minutes."
