The Enchanted 
Fish


There once was a fisherman who lived with his wife in a small hut close
by the seaside. The fisherman used to go fishing everyday. One day, as he sat
in his boat with his rod, looking at the sparkling waves and watching his line,
all of a sudden his float was dragged away deep into the water. He quickly
started to reel in his line and managed to pull out a huge fish. “Wow! This will feed us for days.” Much
to his surprise, the fish started to talk and said,”Pray, let me live! I am not real fish; I am an enchanted prince. Put
me in te water again, and let me go! Have mercy o’ kind fisherman.” The
astonished fisherman quickly threw him back, exclaiming, “I don’t want hurt a talking fish! Go on! Go where came from.”


When
the fisherman went home to his wife, he told her everything that had happened
and how, on hearing it speak, he had let it go again.”Didn’t you ask it for anything!” said the wife. “No, I didn’t, what should i have asked
for?” replied the fisherman.


”I am surprised you
don’t realize what you should have asked for. We
live very wretchedly here, in this nasty dirty hut. We are poor and i am so
miserable. You should have asked for nice cozy cottage. Now go back and ask the
fish that we want a snug little cottage”, said his wife.


The
fisherman wasn’t sure about this but he still went to the seashore, sat in is
boat, went to the middle of the sea and said:


“O enchanted beautiful fish!

Hear my plea!

My wife want not what i want,

and she won’t give up till she has
her own will,


so come forth and help me!”

The fish immediately came swimming
to him, and said, “Well,what is her will?
How can i help your wife? “Ah!” said fisherman, ”she say that when i had caught you, i ought to have asked you for
something before i let you go. Shedoes not like living in our little hut, and
wants a snug little cottage.” “Go home, then,” said fish,”She is already in the cottage!” so the
fisherman went home, and saw his wife standing at the door of a nice trim
little cottage.”Come in, come on in! Look
at the beautiful cottage we have.” Everything went fine for a while, and
then one day fisherman’s wife said,”Husband,
there is not enough room for us in this cottage, go back to the fish and tell
him make me an emperor.” “Wife,”said the fisherman, “I don’t want to go him again. Perhaps he will be angry. We ougth to be
happy with what the fish has given us and not be greedy.” “Nonsense!” said
wife; ”The fish will do it very
willingly, I know. Go along and try!” with a heavy heart te fisherman went to the
middle of the sea and said:


“O enchanted beautiful fish!

Hear my plea!

My wife want not what i want,

and she won’t give up till she has
her own will,


so come forth and help me!”
