Once upon a time there were three brothers called Antioch, Cadmus and Ignotus. One day, they set out from the house where they had grown up to start their own lives. They were going out into the world to enjoy any adventures that would hopefully come their way. As they were walking down a road, the oldest brother met a wizard who just happened to be an excellent wand maker. So the eldest brother asked for a wand that would build him a magnificent house out of the finest straw. "Of course, Antioch," said the wizard. He gave the brother a wand that would produce the finest straw, and the brother built himself a lovely house of golden straw with just a wave of his new wand.
However, death was lurking nearby. He came along and saw the new house but feeling rather resentful that the oldest brother had managed to use magic to build himself a house that would keep him safe; he called out, "Antioch, Antioch, let me come in."
To which the eldest brother replied, "No, no, by the magic of the elder wand, I'll not let you in!"
"Then I'll wave and I'll curse till I cave your house in!" Death shouted, and he waved and cursed, and he WAVED and CURSED until the house of straw fell in, and death claimed the first brother for his own.
The second brother was walking along the road when he met a wizard who just happened to be skilled at transfiguration. "Please Sir," Cadmus said, "can you make me a stone that will build me a magnificent house out of wood?"
"Of course," said the wizard, and he gave the brother a stone that, when turned three times, would produce a house out of wood. In no time at all, the second brother had a lovely house built out of wood. Not long after, death appeared. When he saw the second brother, this time in his wooden house, he called out, "Cadmus, Cadmus, let me come in."
To which the second brother replied, "No, no, with the resurrection stone, I'll not let you in!"
"Then I'll wave and I'll curse till I cave your house in!" Death called out, and he waved and cursed and he WAVED and CURSED until the house caved in and death took the second brother for his own.
The youngest brother was walking down the road when he met a wizard who just happened to be great at invisibility. "Please Sir, can you make me some invisible bricks so I can build myself a house?" he asked, and when the wizard had given him some, he built himself a lovely house that nobody could see. Death came along, and gave an evil smile as he thought about the youngest brother.
He called out, "Ignotus, Ignotus, let me come in!" And the youngest brother called back, "No, no, with the invisibility bricks, I'll not let you in!"
"Then I'll wave and I'll curse till I cave your house in!" Death called out, and he waved and cursed, and he WAVED and CURSED, and he WAVED again and CURSED again, but still the house, which was so well hidden with invisibility bricks, did not cave in.
For many years death tried to wave and curse the house in, but it wasn’t until the youngest brother had left the house and gave it to his son in his will, did death find him, and they parted together like old friends.
