There was once, a long, long time ago, so much so that day and night did not even exist, and only magical and strange creatures lived on earth, two little goblins who dreamed of jumping so high, that could catch the clouds.
One day,the Great Fairy of the Skies He discovered them jumping over and over again, in a useless and fun game at the same time, trying to catch some light clouds that passed at high speed. That game amused him so much, and he laughed so much, thatdecided to give a magical gift to each.
- What do you want the most in life? Only one thing, I can't give you more - he asked the one who seemed more restless.
The goblin, excited to speak to one of the Great Fairies, and eager to receive her wish, responded instantly.
- Skip! I want to jump over the mountains! Above the clouds and the wind, and beyond the sun!
- Sure? - Said the fairy - Don't you want anything else?
The pixie, impatient, recounted the years he had spent dreaming of that gift, and assured that nothing could make him happier. The Fairy, convinced, blew on the goblin and, instantly, it jumped so high that in a few moments it crossed the clouds, then it continued towards the sun, and finallythey stopped seeing him on the way to the stars.
The Fairy then addressed the other goblin.
- And you? What do you want the most?
The second goblin, looking somewhat calmer than the first, was thoughtful. He scratched his chin, stretched his ears, looked at the sky, looked at the ground, looked again at the sky, covered his eyes, put a hand to his ear, looked again at the ground, made a sad gesture, and finally answered:
- I want to be able to catch anything, especially to hold my friend. It will kill the blow when it falls.
At that moment, they began to hear a noise, like a little scream in the distance, that got closer and closer, sounding louder and louder, until they could clearly make out the horrified face of the first goblin at what was going to be the worst smack great in history. But the fairy blew on the second goblin, and he was able to catch him and save his life.
With my heart almost out of my chest and my eyes full of tears, the first goblin regretted being so impulsive, and embraced his good friend, who for having thought a little before making his own wish, was forced to waste it on him. And grateful for his generosity, the jumping goblin offered to exchange the gifts, keeping the useless gift of catching goblins for himself, and giving his partner the ability to jump on clouds. But the second goblin, who knew how much his friend desired that gift, decided they would share it in turns. Thus, in succession, one would jump and the other would have to catch it, and both would be just as happy.
The fairy,moved by the companionship and friendship of the two elves, gave each one the most beautiful objects that decorated their skies:the sun and the moon. Since then, the elf who received the sun jumps happily every morning, showing off his gift to the world. And when after a whole day he falls to the ground, his friend avoids the blow, and prepares to make his jump, in which he will proudly show the light of the moon all night long.
