The Five Brothers
There was one day five brothers who left their home
looking for good fourtune. After two days they stopped
and stayed in a large cave nearby. When they woke
up the next morning,the went further into the cave,
then they saw a lamp which looked rather dusty.
The four of the five brothers began to rub the lamp,
soon they fifth caught up with the rest of the brothers
and just had touched the lamp when from it came smoke.
Then ariseing from the lamp was a genie. This genie was
like no other for he was actually a man instead. Many years
ago,a young man went walking thourgh the forest at the time
when he saw a deer dying. He went to help it when out of
nowhere came Death. Death looked at the young man and told
him to move,so the young man moved out of the way. Then
looking back,he saw Death's scyth chop the body of the dear
in half. Slowly the body dissaperaed and all that was left
was nothing. Quietly,Death turned and looked at the young man,
slowly he backed up until. The young man thought about maybe
takeing something from Death,but how? Soon the young man followed
Death quietly. Soon Death turned around and saw the young man
following him. The young man walked up to him and said"I would
like to own one of your fantasitic items". Death looked at him
and thought. Soon,Death repiled "Very well but you will have to
beat my in a card game". The young man looked puzzzeled. He thought
that he would have to do something to show that he was worthy of
the item. But then Death repiled"If you lose the game,I will
take your soul". Soon Death conjured a table and they were off playing.
Soon,Death had won the game. Death came close to the young man. Suddenly
the young man thought of something. He quily said"How about this Death,
I will get you five souls in ten years?". Death thought,then Death backed
up and said"Alright. But I will give you a disadvantige". Death fired a
spell turning The Young man into a genie. Then Death carried him to the
cave and placed him on the ground. Now he was faceing the anewesr to his
problem. So he said"I will each give you one wish. But one wish alone".
So the first brother who was not anything spiecial expect being the
oldest of the five. He wished for a flying carpet so he could fly
around the world and see the great sights. So the genie made a carpet
and gave it to the first brother. The second brother which was the
strongest,asked for a sword which could conquer anybody in a duel.
Out of stone,The Genie made a sword the could kill anyone. So the
second brother went on his way. The third was the one who was the
most tactacal. So he asked for a orb which could see the furture.
The genie toke a stone from the cave made it very big and round.
Soon it was the size of a head. The genie gave it to him and the
third looked into the orb and saw him leaving the cave. So the third
went his way,leaveing two brothers left. Now the fourth brother wanted
nothing more then a good fourtune. So the brother asked for an item that
would bring him a good fourtune. So once again the genie took a small
stone from the floor and made two chains appear from inside the stone.
He handed it to the fourth brother and once again another brother left
going on his own. Now all that was left was the fifth brother. The youngest
and wisest out of them all,asked the genie if he could think about
his wish overnight. The genie agreed to this and went to sleep. Over
the night,staying awake,the fifth brother thought about this. Soon it
was morning again and the fifth brother knew what he wanted. The fifth
brother waited for the genie to wake up and then his wish would be granted.
The genie woke up and saw the fifth brother waiting. So the genie asked"
What is your wish?". The fifth brother repiled his wish to the genie and
the genie thought about this.The genie repiled "Are you sure?". The fifth
brother nodded his head. So the genie forever to travel with the fifth
brother,left the cave and began their travels. Many years pass with
them on their adventure but soon the fifth brother settles down with
a wife but the genie still lives with him forever,until they part.
But I would to tell you what happend to the other four brothers.
The first brother who wished for a flying carpet died flying into
a tree. The second brother who had died a terrible death by winning
many contests and then showing everyone his sword. Soon a thief had
killed him and taken the sword. The thrid brother used the orb to
predicte his death and lived his life in fear. He died by jumping from
a building,thinking he was being chased by a ghost. The fouth brother
claimed his own life after one day,the stone which gave him good
fourtune fell into the sea. Soon his life was terrible after everything
of his had died. His sons,his wife and his animals. After that the field
of his had died,he jumped into the sea. Thus leaveing the fifth brother
who died a normal death. Forever the items that were theirs, were forever
lost somewhere in the world. Soon after the fifth brothers death, the genie
turned back into the young man he was before he was a genie. That is the tale of The Five Brothers.
