THE LAST WISH

by John Yeo

“Well Roger your three wishes have almost completely expired. Two of them have already been used . You are extremely wealthy and ageless, you will live as long as the world turns around the sun. I understand you have a very special request for your third and final desire. What would you like?”
“Yes Master, I have given much thought to my final request, and I ask for a companion to share eternity with, I get very lonely on my own and I would love a special friend to spend my life with.”
“That is possible Roger, do you have anyone in mind?”
“I want to be with that Angel on the pedestal in the park, I would like a pair of wings just like hers. We could be happily together for eternity.”
“Are you absolutely sure this is what you wish for, to be with your Angel Roger? I can make this final wish come true for you.”
“Yes please Master,”
Then with a wave of the magic wand Roger was turned to stone.

  1. A well-written story about “be careful what you wish for.” He was on a roll with wishes #1 and #2 and if only he had been more specific with his final wish. Doesn’t he know magic is literal?

  2. Wonderful story! Many times we may ask for something only to find out after we get it that we were not explicit in our requests. Sometimes it may not be matter, however, other times it can be very crucial because of the variations of such a request.
