In a small village called “one wish”. It is a village that everyone will be grant one wish from the angel which could be anything. One man wishes ‘ I want to be a billionaire ‘ one women wishes ‘I wish I would be healthy and never get ill until the rest of my life’ and many more wishes from every villager. Then all of the wishes will be granted and will work for the rest of their lives so I’m very lucky to born in this village and today is my turn to make a wish. So I wish that ‘I could be the cleverest person in the world’’.
When the angel hears me she asks me again that ‘Are you sure with your decision? ‘of course, everyone in my school want to be the cleverest person in the world’ I answer so the angel grant my life long wish. And the first day in school, the wish came true! I become the cleverest student in my room and get the highest score in every semester. I am very happy and satisfied with this wish because I get a scholarship to America. I am in the best university in the world, I win the first place of every competitions, I get first class honors (with golden medal) from the university, I work at NASA, I am famous, I have a lot of money and I can buy anything that I want but why deeply inside of me still feels so lonely and sad?
Days gone by, on and on I don’t feel excited that I am clever or famous anymore. I just want somebody to take care of me when I get old, to hold each other until we fell asleep but no men like a woman who is smarter, stronger and more successful than him. Now I fully understand the loneliness that I feel deeply inside, The happiness I receive is just short term happiness. It’s not the warmth from being loved by someone.
So I decide to go back to ‘one wish’ village again, kneel down and beg the angel that ‘please, I don’t want to be the cleverest person in the world anymore. I want to be an ordinary person that have warm family’. The angel replies to me ‘No, because you have already used you wish, you can’t turn back time or make another wish because you have decided you own path’ then the angel vanished. I come back home with disappointment and sorrow then I hear my cellphone ring. I rush to answer the phone and all I can hear is “congratulations on your promotion”.
