Once there lived a king who did not allow anybody to leave the kingdom and any foreigners to enter in his kingdom. There was only one bridge that connected his kingdom with the outer world. A guard who was a sharpshooter was specially assigned for guarding the bridge. According to the orders, anyone moving outside should be killed and anyone coming to his kingdom should be sent back. To take rest, the guard used to sit inside his hut for 5 minutes and return back on the post. The bridge took a minimum of 9 minutes to pass.

Even then, a man was able to escape the kingdom without any kind of harm from the guard.

when the guard was taking rest for 5 min the person escaping from the kingdom runs for 5 min. away from the gate but then he turned around towards the gate at the moment the guard came by, since any person appraoching towards the kingdom must be sent back so the guard asked the person to leave and thus he escaped.

This man walked over the bridge when guard go for rest. After 5 minute this man turn his direction towards kingdom, so the guard thought he was a foreigner and sent him away from kingdom.
