Finally I reached the last Stone God, Urn. I remembered the gold rock that Shen had given to me earlier so I took it out of my pocket and showed it to Urn. Urn smiled and said, “Since you journeyed long and far to reach me, I will grant you your wish. Hold that stone in your hands. Whatever wish you make it will grant it. However dear traveler, do not take this lightly. Be careful what you wish for, because you can only make one wish. After your wish is granted the stone will disappear and you will be stuck with whatever you have wished for the rest of your days.”
I nodded and grasped the small stone in my hands. I thought long and hard about what I wanted and then I said, “I wish that I could visit my stone god friends whenever I liked to. That is my only wish!” The gold stone glowed and then disappeared. Urn smiled and said, “That was a very good wish. I would like to be friends with you too. Please visit us whenever you like.” I told Urn I would and then began my journey back to my home in Flagstaff.
When I got back to my house, the gold stone was sitting on my kitchen counter. Underneath was a note that read, “Wish on this stone whenever you want to see us. The stone will take you to us if you say any one of our names.” I smiled and put the stone in my pocket. I later put it in a safe place in my room so no one would bother my special treasure.
Today I still visit the stone Gods. Ryu tells very good jokes and can make me laugh no matter what kind of day I have been having. Ruu always gives me wisdom and helps guide me on the right path. Norg gives me encouragement and reminds me to never give up on my dreams. Shen always gives me pretty stones which I take home and put in a special place. As for urn, well, he and I have become really good friends. We talk all of the time and he tells me all sorts of stories about the desert where I found him.
If you are traveling through the desert one day and happen upon the first stone God, Ruu, take his advice and follow the path. If you do your wishes will be granted and your dreams are sure to come true.
