There 1.________ once three brothers who were travelling along a lonely, winding road at twilight. In time, the brothers reached a river too treacherous to pass. But being learned in the magical arts, the three brothers simply waved their wands and 2._________ a bridge. Before they could cross, however, they 3._______ their path blocked by a hooded figure. It was Death, and he 4.______ cheated, cheated because travelers would normally drown in the river. But Death was cunning. He 5._________ to congratulate the three brothers on their magic and 6.________ that each had earned a prize for having been clever enough to evade him.
The oldest 7.________ for a wand more powerful than any in existence. So Death fashioned him one from an Elder Tree that stood nearby. The second brother 8.________ that he wanted to humiliate Death even further and asked for the power to recall loved ones from the grave. So Death plucked a stone from the river and 9.________ it to him. Finally, Death turned to the third brother. A humble man, he asked for something that would allow him to go forth from that place without being followed by Death. And so it was that Death reluctantly 10.________ over his own Cloak of Invisibility.
The first brother 11._________ to a distant village where with the Elder Wand in hand he 12.________ a wizard with whom he’d once quarreled. Drunk, with the power that the Elder Wand had given him, he bragged of his invincibility. But that night, another wizard 13.________ the wand and slit the brother’s throat for good measure, and so Death took the first brother of his own.
The second brother journeyed to his home where he 14._______ the stone and turned it thrice in hand. To his delight, the girl he had once hoped to marry before her untimely death 15._______ before him. Yet, soon she 16._________ sad and cold for she did not belong in the mortal world. Driven mad with hopeless longing, the second brother killed himself so as to join her. And so, Death took the second brother.
As for the third brother, Death 17._______ for many years, but 18._______ never able to find him. Only when he attained a great age did the youngest brother shed the Cloak of Invisibility and give it to his son. He then 19._______ Death as an old friend and 20._________ with him gladly departing this life… as equals.
