a wishing toadstall

Back in 15th century britain, 3 men lived. Poor and drunkards, They where always down the pub 'The Blue Boar' a quaint little white cottage pub, A large thatched roofcovering most of it, Barley leaving the walls seeable.
Down the pub one rainy evening there where 3 men sat, William, George and Fabian. While sat there talking the mengot onto an old tale, The tale says of a toadstall, Not just any toadstall, One with very magical powers, Any man that is able to find this toadstall it shal grant you a wish. These men discused this story all night, Eventually ending this conversation with deciding on finding this toadstall.
They drank all drank all night, Leaving the pub and going back to one of there houses. Then dawn rose and the men decided to venture out to the woods.A misty morning, Still wet and the men still drunk, They continued into the woods, Looking and looking and looking untill the mist had passed and the sun had come up and it was miday on a lovely autumn afternoon.They then decide to go back to the pub
So they went and sat, Drinking and drinking, Eventually having dinner there, tey went to there homes, Not to late and got early nights, Planning on an early morning.
The men awoke the next day, An afternoon sun beaming through there windows. A bit late now for toadstall hunting they went to the pub for a morning (afternoon) pint and breakfast. After a day and noght drinking, When the pub called last orders then closed its doors. In these men's drunk states they decided to go searching for the toadstall. It was a clean night, every cloud in the sky out. They continued into the woods, Looking and looking and looking, Until the dawn had passed te sun had come up and it was a lovely autumn afternoon. They then decided to go down the blue boar, Now it was probably open.They sat and had breakfast, Annoyed about them not finding the toadstall. Word had got round about them and there crazy talk of toadstalls, The locals laughed at them. The men drank all day and slightly broken they did not let it get to them. For tonight they will go and get early nights and early mornings.
Bright and early the next day just before dawn. They left for the woods, a bright red sunrise they continued into the woods, Looking and looking and looking till the dawn had passed the sun had come out andand it was a lovely autumn afternoon. The men had began to arguee, For hours they where angry at eachother, They could not belive they where evan trying, And just when they where about to give up, They found a strange door n a tree routeonly a couple of inchs high, the men confuesd and hoping knocked on the door. A little toadstall, With arms and legs, Eyes and a mouth came out of the door "How can i help you" said the toadstall
"Hello are you the wishing toadstall" george says
"Yes i am , Your journey must have been long and hard. So now i will grant you all a wish"
"Me first" said fabian so quick "I wish to be rich, Richr than anyone"
"Alright" said the toadstall "Your wish is granted go home and sleep for tomorrow you will be rich richer than anyone"
"Me now" said george, Barely leaving time for the toadstall to finish "I wish to be beautiful, More beautiful than anyone else"
"Alright" said the toadstall "Your wish is granted, Go home and sleep for tomorrow You shall be beautiful more beautiful than anyone else. Now what is your wish"
" I wish to be happy" said william
"Alright" said the toadstall "Your wish is granted go home and sleep for tomorrow your wish shall be granted". The 3 men thanked the toadstall and left, All the way home they continued to fight, Until they decided that they where never going to speak again. They all got home and went staight to bed. And the next day all there wish's had become true.
So for the richest man what became of him, He lived rich in welth for the rest of his life, But longed for happiness, He died with no one by his side.
So for the prettiest man what became of him, He lived his life beautiful meeting all the beautiful people along his way, But longed for true love. He died with no one by his side.
So for the happiest man what became of him, He lived his life happy forever more, Meeting friends, Getting drunk with no care, He died with a women and friends by his side to send him off.
