The Magic Candle

The Magic Candle

One day, a young wanderer got lost in the wood. Suddenly, he saw a light from an old hut. He knocked on the door, and old woman opened it. She was crying. She said that a devil had stolen her magic candle. The candle could grant anything she asked. The wanderer asked her where the devil lived. “in a castle not far from here,” said the old woman.

The wanderer went to the castle. There he found the devil, but he was old and weak. Therefore, when the wanderer grabbed the magic candle from the devil’s table and ran away, he couldn’t chase him.
However, the wanderer was not a kind man. He didn’t return the candle to the old woman, but kept it for himself. He lit the candle and made a wish, “I want to go far away from here.”

Suddenly, a genie appeared and took him to a beautiful palace. The wanderer wanted to make some money. So, he lit the candle again and wished for some jewelry. He sold them to the guests and was soon making a lot of money. Then, a princess came to buy some jewelry, but there was nothing left. The wanderer fell in love with her and asked her to marry him. The kind princess said yes, and they got married the next day.

In his happiness, the wanderer told the princess about his adventure and the magic candle. Hearing that, the princess got very angry. At night, she lit the candle and wished the wanderer disappeared.
in the morning the wanderer awoke and found himself back in his ugly house in the village.
