In both stories, they included wish granting fish, an important moral that is learned, and both of the main characters feared something. In “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?” there was “a deep-sea goldfish” that was owned by Sergei, which was able to grant three wishes, and Sergei had used those wishes for unselfish reasons. The first wish was “...used up when they discovered a cancer in his sister.” The second wish “Sergei used up five years ago, on Sveta's boy...it wasn't for Sveta that he'd done it, that he'd wished his wish purely for the boy.” The final wish was then used to save the boy that he had killed on accident. His wishes were used for good purposes and did what was right, even if it cost him and even if he feared he was going to lose his magical goldfish. Unlike “What, of This Goldfish, would You Wish?”, in the story “The Fisherman and His Wife” the wishes from the “enchanted prince” flounder was used for greed and power.

Sergei’s said to the gold fish “ he wanted to take you from me.” (Keret 6). “ Nonsense” (keret 6) the fish says. Sergei’s choices that he made had a huge impact on his life he has no one to get close to now, since all the people in life leave at some point. A situation I can kind of relate to in this story is when Sergei uses his last wish to save the boy’s life. Sergei didn’t even know the young boy so he was thinking to himself why should he use his last wish on someone he barely knew.
That's when Cheswick jams his fingers into the grate at the bottom of the pool and drowns himself. This may have been prevented if McMurphy would have stood up for Cheswick against Nurse Ratched but he didn't. Therefore this shows McMurphy has tremendous power now in the ward and Nurse Ratched knows it. That’s you can say Nurse Ratched fears McMurphy because he's not like the rest of the patients that she can control McMurphy is different.

Odysseus did not want to go war because his son, Telemachus, was just born but he went anyways.

Since it fits him so nicely, he wants to keep it. In fact, he says, “And even if he does wake up, he probably won’t notice that it’s gone” (Klassen, 2012). Just to be safe, the little fish decides to tell the reader where he is going to hide.
