In the fable, there was a loyal samurai whose lord was cruel and beat him.
Another lord was impressed by the samurai's loyalty and offered him a position in his house, but the samurai refused.
“If I go with you” the samurai said, “who will take care of my master? Who would protect him and tend to his house?”
And so the loyal samurai returned to the lord who beat him.
Are you sure he wasn't just a masochist?
