Don't Wait Before It's To Late
Hello all of my awesome read.cash family. How are you everybody? I am quite well.
Today I am here to share another story to learn, which was told by my lovely grandma.
Let’s began the story…..
Long time ago there was an old man and old woman lived in a broken hut in a village. Behind the hut there
was a deep river. Every day the old man catching some fish in the river with his old net. They were running the family by selling those fish in the market. One day at the morning, the old man cast his net into the river. After a while the net seemed very heavy. Then the old man began to think in his mind “surprise!” This has never
happened before? He is thinking that it's a big fish caught but his net as the net was so heavy. However he still pull the net with great force. Then he was surprise to see a small golden fish fluttering in the net.
He felt so sad to see there just one fish. The old man was surprised and the fish started to talk. He said and begged "let me go into the river" I promise I will fulfill your all wishes. The old man was a good person. He felt pity for the fish and let him go. Then the fish swim into the river with full of happiness. Then he rolled up the net and returned home. His wife was so angry when he saw him without bringing any fish. Then he ask him "why? no there's no fish today?" Then he explain everything to her wife what was happened in the morning. His wife told him, "do you know? There is no bread in our house for eat. Why you didn’t ask some bread to him, as he told you he will help you and fulfill your wishes" So his wife was so angry yet sad. After a while, the old man go again to the river and shouted "FISH, HEY GOLDEN FISH!". Then the golden fish rise up from the river and ask him what "happened to you old man?" Then he said "you can fulfil my wishes right?" The fish
said yes and tell him what he want to get. He said "I have nothing for ask but my wife is very angry with me for not asking you anything". The golden fish understand and told him "now tell me immediately what you want from me?" Then he said "can you give me some bread because there is no bread in our house." The fish said "all right, go home and pray to GOD".
After he reached home, he asked his wife "did you get any bread in house". The wife said “yes, I got lot of bread at home. But our laundry is broken. You go the fish again and bring new laundry."
The next day he go to the fish and asked him for a new laundry machine. The fish told the old man to pray to GOD same way as what he did before The old man did it and when he reached home he saw a new laundry machine.
His wife became more greedy and she want new house from the fish. Again the old man go the fish and ask a new house. The fish told him pray to GOD same way as like before. After reached home he can’t believe on what he saw, there is a beautiful new house.
His wife was so happy to see it. Oneday his wife told him that she want to be a queen of this kingdom and it’s her last wish. So the old man again go to the fish and told him that its her wife's last wish. The fish told him pray to the GOD. He did and reached home then he can see that in there is no new house, no new things, just everything was destroyed.
All the things that they have are starting to fade. Her sight are fading also as she was only occupied on the things that she can see. She wants to ask an apology, that she now understand her mistake, but there's no more chance.
