After making their first wish, the Whites had a restless night. They had asked for 200 Pounds to settle their mortgages, but were not very sure of their wish being granted. Their expectations kept on shifting, and so did their mood. They didn't seem to be very excited about the sum being arriving, but had a doubt within them.
However, their expectation did come true, but in a very cruel face. A man called Mr. Sampson arrived the next morning with a very unfortunate news of their son Herbert's death. He was caught up in a machine while narrating the previous night's story to his mates, and lost his life. Along with this news, came the 200 Pounds in the form of a compensation that the company had sent to Herbert's parents for his services. The whites' world came off shattering, and in return of their wish, they lost their only son.
