Scary For Kids

Three Wishes

Three Wishes is a spooky little story about an old man who encounters an old hag that grants him 3 wishes.

Three Wishes

An elderly man was sitting alone on a dark path. He wasn’t sure of which direction to go, and he’d forgotten both where he was traveling to. He also couldn’t remember who he was.

He sat down for a moment to rest his weary legs, and suddenly looked up to see an elderly woman before him. Her skin was wrinkled and grey and her nose was crooked. Warts covered her hairy chin.

She grinned toothlessly and said with a cackle, “Now your third wish. What will it be?”

“Third wish?” The man was baffled. “How can it be three wishes if I haven’t had a first and second wish?”

“You’ve had two wishes already,” the old hag said, “but your second wish was for me to return everything to the way it was before you had made your first wish. That’s why you remember nothing; because everything is the way it was before you made any wishes.” She cackled at the poor man. “So it is that you have one wish left.”

“All right,” he said hesitantly, “I don’t believe this, but there’s no harm in trying. I wish to know who I am.”

“Funny,” said the old woman as she granted his wish and disappeared forever. “That was your first wish…”

  • @Dinofire thanks for explaining. But don’t call us idiots. Call yourself an idiot. Also just because you get it doesn’t mean we do so don’t call us idiots. I don’t call anyone on SFK anything bad so you shouldn’t. What you call someone else is what you really are. So please stop.

  • @Dinofire, First of all, thx for explaining and as i too didn’t get it before but now i got it…but you don’t have the rite 2 call us “Idiots”. What if someone calls you “B*tch”? Won’t you be hurt? So please, respect others….I know evryone is not so SMART like u!

  • I think the man is a ghost or something who doesn’t remember anything ,that’s why he wanted to forget who he is after knowing the truth.

  • This is most probably the coolest horror story. I never thought horror stories could be cool but seems like i was wrong

  • Why doesn’t anyone get it? If his second wish was for everything to be the way it was before, that means something terrible happens when he knows who he is. Now he knows who he is and no one can save him.

  • Read it again, it’s July 2nd. Feel the same. :/ If you read what I posted on “Man in the Mirror”, you’ll get it. I’m bizarre.
    Maybe I AM psychic…
