The Candle
N M A Al-Sharekh

There was once five kinds of living creatures. The important one was the Angels the second impotant one was the Brotex the third important one was the Crotis and the stupid and jelous ones were the humans and the Drotis (the humans was better than the Drotis).The Brotix once invented a candle that can give five wishes.
they made five .candles.
The Brotix chose the people from the living creatures easily but when he came to the humans it was really hard choosing someone that is really nice not greedy,honest,trustworthy.
The Brotix decided to do a test for the humans this is what was:
if someone would be nice for one whole for the all of the people of the world would take the candle.
Seven people volenteered to be ones who own the candle these are the names:
4 men and 3 women Jack from England,Ahmad from Egypt,Peter from Brazil,Jackob from Australia,Julia from America,Sarah lives in the Antarctica and Eyomi from China.Who do you think will win the candle?
Jack said something for his secratery she didnt like to hear,Ahamd wished for his presedint death because he forbid his favourite fastfood,
Peter divorced his wife because she wasn't beautiful and he loved another woman,Julia told the accountant in he market a swear word because he didn't count very well,Sarah killed a polar bear (the polar bear was a favourite pet to her cousin)revenge because he didn't marry her,Eyomi killed a cat on purpose because the cat was in her way of street.
Jackob was the one who owns the candle now because he was nice he isn't really nice he was really rude,greedy,dishonest,a liar and a cheater.He was once a Crotis but because he had these bad charactertics the Angels turned him to a human if he get any worse the Angels would have to turn him into a Drotis unless one of his wishes in the candle is that the Angels can't do him anything.
These are the things he wished he wished that he would be the king of the world,he wished that the Angels won't get invovled in his life,he wished that he had one hundred loyal slave and solidiers(50 women and 50 men),he wished he had a very smart and loyal wife that is beautiful too,he wished that he had all the food and money as much as he need.
One day Peter thought that its not fair that 2 Crotis take the candle so he thought very well and said "I think i'm going to fight him with my strong army we humans worked hard when we were Drotises to be humans and now when we can wish to be Brotexes a Crotis turned into a human takes our chance if we fight him and take the candle we will have five wishes for us".
So the next day Peter prepared his army to the battle he gave them armour,swords,daggers,
spears,helmets and bow and arrows.Peter and Jackob didn't fight because they were the leaders of the two army.Peter's had 123 soliders with him and Jackob army had 159 soldiers with him.Jackob won the battle Peter died by an arrow in his head.
After a month another person from the seven wanted to fight with him this it was Julia her cousin was the leader of the army in America,
she asked him if he can make his army fight a battle against a lazy Crotis.He agreed on a condition that she marry him.She agreed.
The very next day they went to fight Julia and her cousin were in a Limo the army went to fight against Jackob but they lost too because they were sick (they ate stale food but they didn't tell there leader).While Julia was seeing them she noticed that a lot are dying and before anything hits so she walked out of the car in that moment Jackob saw and he was holding and arrowhe shooted her on her head she died then her cousin was frightened saw he ran away.
Jack,Ahmad and Sarah did the same thing they died too.
Eyomi thought about what could she do take the candle away from Jackob she then had an idea.This idea was putting money in his daily path.She did that when he saw the money he just followed to see where it comes from then he continues till he gets in a dark place where he didn't notice whats comig to him (the dark place was a lion's den)it was a lion.The lion ate him.
Eyomi now had to go to Jackob's castle but it was hard because one of his wishes was having
loyal soldiers and servants who would help and protect him even if he was dead.
Eyomi had to cut a bit of the candle to own the
candle and to make Jackob's wishes gone.
Eyomi did another trick for Jackob's soldiers this time this is what she did the soldiers were really hungry they didn't eat for 1 whole day and they didn't drink water for 20 hours so Eyomi put some food in there bedroom when they were asleep.
When they woke up in the morning they followed the path of the food they were really hungry that they even picked the food and didn't leave anything to guide them in the way back.The food took them to a forest that was so dark in the morning and night.The soldiers died when bear came and ate them only one soldier survived but he had bad injuries.
Eyomi entered the castle Jackob's wife was asleep so were the maids.Eyomi entered the room where the candle was but Smith the soldier who survived stopped her and told Eyomi,"If you want that candle you have to fight with me because i'm not letting you very easily after killing my boss and my mates and friends take that candle easily".
Then Eyomi replied and said,"Do you really want to fight a chinese person?Don't you know the power i have and you have bad injuries?".
He said after what he heard,"well dying is better than living without my bestfriends".
Eyomi and Smith started fighting.They fought for 6 hours but of course its Eyomi who won.
She took the candle and cut a little piece of it then all Jackob's wishes disappeared like his wife took her things and went away and so did his maids.
The Angels then thought that turning Eyomi into a Crotis is the best solution because she was very smart and intelligent.And so she lived happily ever after. candles one candle for the Angels,one candle for the Brotix,one for the Crotis,one candle for the humans,one candle for the Drotis.
