I decided to build a scene from one of my favorite short stories from the Harry Potter world. The story is called "The Tale of the Three Brothers". The story revolves around three wizard brothers who once conquered death for a short time by defeating a deadly obstacle with their magic. The personification of Death appeared out of anger because he was defeated by their magic, but pretended to congratulate them by awarding them gifts of their choosing. Two of the three brothers wished to defeat Death beyond what they had done already, and foolishly chose their gifts accordingly, leading to their early demise. The third brother was wiser, and chose a gift that only allowed him to postpone death, dying at a ripe old age.
