A wish upon a star

Once upon a time, there was a little boy who wished for a better life. One day he saw an old lady smiling and she asked him why he was so sad. Then the little boy told his story, he told her everything including his precious wish.

“I’m going to tell you a secret” said the old lady.

And then she began.

“In the old days, there was a young boy who was sad and very ill but even so he, just like you, had a wish. One he went climbing that mountain” and she pointed to the mountain behind the village “to the very top and tried to make a wish in a full moon night under a sky full of stars. He wished to live a long life. In the next day he was completely cured and he lived a long happy life. Since that time every one who had a wish climbed up that mountain and maid a wish to the moon and stars just like that boy but they only came true under that conditions.”

Then the little boy waited every night for a sky full of stars where the full moon awakes. And one day it happened. The little boy climbed up the mountain barefoot.

When he reached the top he made his wish, to have a family. After that he went down the mountain and he noticed that the all village was looking for him. And then a married couple saw him and decided to make him his son. And the little boy lived happily ever after.
