This is for a competition. I would like to know what you think. Any feedback will be great.

Thank You.

One day I visited the market. There I spied an old lamp. Intrigued I asked the stall owner. The owner told me it belonged to Aladdin. Of course I didn’t believe him. When I got home, I gave the lamp a good polish and then the most unexpected thing happened - a Genie popped out.

"You're my master.You have three wishes!" the Genie boomed.

Startled by the Genie’s appearance I blurted out my three wishes.

"One - to be a writer. Two - to see my name in print and three - fame."

"Granted," the Genie bellowed.

He gave me some writing material!

I get the sense that this is supposed to be a surprise, or "twist" ending, but I missed it, because "writing material" seemed ambiguous to me.

Did he give you a topic to write about (an idea for a novel, perhaps)?

Or did he give you the materials with which to write (pen an paper)?
