On his way home, Jon read over his grandfather's letter again. Part of it got him wondering:

"The stone has great power, but is not unlimited. Changes made will be as if it has always been so, apart from those within earshot of the wish or out of the range of influence of the stone. This range I estimate at several miles, but I fear I have not been able to determine an exact figure."

Technically, his grandfather only needed to make a wish to know what the range of the stone was, so how come he said that he couldn't determine an exact figure?

Jon took the stone out of his pocket and said "I wish to know what the range limit on the wishing stone is." The stone glowed and Jon got his answer: There was no range limit.

Why would grandpa lie about that? Jon thought. Then he made another wish. "I wish to know why my grandfather lied about the stone's range limit." The stone glowed and again Jon got his answer: His grandfather was trying to protect Jon from making a world-changing wish. It could be devastating, since wishes couldn't be reversed. If Jon was told that wishes had a range limit by someone he trusted, then he'd believe him and wouldn't try to make a world-changing wish.

Jon understood that his grandfather was trying to look out for him, but it kind of hurt him that his grandfather didn't trust him enough to be careful with the stone.

When Jon got home, he wondered what wish to make.
