The story of a father and his two sons

January 23, 2008

I can’t seem to get the following story out of my mind. Here goes….

There was once a powerful and very rich man who has two sons. It was obvious that he favoured the eldest from the youngest as, whatever he gave to the youngest, the eldest would get twice as much.

One day it was the youngest’s birthday. The father came to him and asked what he would like for his birthday.

The youngest asked, ‘What would you give me father?’

The father said, ‘Anything that you are asking for.’

The son was very happy to hear that only to find out that the father had not finish his sentence. The father continued, ‘But, you must remember, whatever that you wish for, your brother would be getting twice as much.’

With that, the son asked his father if he could first think about it, to which the father said yes. So, the youngest went to sleep with unhappy thoughts.

The next morning, he came up to his father and told him what he wish for. He asked for one of his eyes to be poked out of his head.

The end.

    Very sad. If you be the youngest one, what will you want to ask for?
