Hello, Hasan. You might want to touch upon a theme of destiny or fate in the conversation between Mr. and Mrs. White; how sometimes you get what you wish for but the end result is not exactly what you had expected. Or how it is best not to tempt fate in the first place because the outcome may be worse than before. Misery is engulfing them following the realization that their dead son may have returned from the dead, but they probably now realize that he is better off with the third wish fulfilled. Perhaps a bit of hope can be instilled in your conversation as well.
