The dragon was never content or happy with the amount of gold and jewels that he had, for he was always flying off to get more. King Midas was not content or pleased with the amount of gold that he had either, so he wished that everything he touched would turn to gold. One day the dragon tried to steal King Midas’s gold, and the king responded by touching the dragon, which at first made Midas content or glad since he then owned a huge golden dragon! But when he showed his daughter Rosemary the golden dragon, he mistakenly turned her into gold as well, which did not make King Midas content or joyful in the least!
