Three wishes

Eva Mejuto

Dreaming on moonlit nights, brings good luck. You can ask for three wishes”, proclaimed the mysterious piece of paper that fell down the chimney, while the two old people spent their time toasting a crust of bread. Gold teeth, elegant clothes, a diamond palace… What a difficult choice…! So the old woman thought that with a sausage sandwich, she would be able to think better. Just then… sass!, the sausage appeared. She had used up her first wish! How many dreams end in three wishes? This tale, adapted from the Portuguese oral tradition, speaks to us about the power of dreams, of luck that appears and disappears whimsically before our very eyes and of how affection and the desire to continue dreaming bring us happiness.
