Your character is being granted 3 wishes but there are certain rules. The three wishes have to follow these rules. First wish has to help someone else, second wish has to help the character not others, and the third wish has to help the world in some way.
Since I use Scout a lot, I will be using Katlyn for this exercise. She is the best friend of Jennifer and Scout in my YA Paranormal book that I am currently working on.
Wish 1- To Help Another
Katlyn stares at the being is granting her three wishes. She thinks for a moment then smiles and nods. “I know what I want for my first wish.” She licks her lips nervously and clears her throat. “I wish Officer Michelle was a demon hunter, too. That way she can fight and protect herself better.”
Wish 2- To Help Yourself
Katlyn crosses her arms as she thinks about what she wants for her second wish since she has to wish something for herself. She didn’t really want anything for herself, she would rather wish something for someone else. But she has to follow the rules or she won’t get any wishes granted. “For my second wish, I wish that is easier for me to study and to remember what I study.”
Wish 3- To Help the World
Katlyn stops when she came to the last wish. She has to make a wish that will help the world. She could wish away the demons and then she and everyone else who are demon hunters would be free to live the lives they have always wanted. They wouldn’t have to worry about fighting demons or keeping non-hunters safe on a constant daily basis. They could go to normal schools and learn normal things instead of having to learn things like demon anatomy or how to kill a demon without being noticed. But she also knew that the others wouldn’t be happy. She knows that being a demon hunter is what she and the others are meant to be.
Katlyn stands up straight and looks the being straight in the eye again. “I wish that there will always be demon hunters who will protect the world from the demons.”
The being nods his head and claps his hands, all wishes granted since she had followed the rules he had given her.
