Time: 6:30 A.M.
I groan and slam my hand on my alarm clock to shut it off. I really hate alarm clocks. They're so annoying but I guess I have to wake up. I remember how Arashi wished for a little puppy yesterday. Once he left my house, I texted him to see if he got one. As I thought, he had found one on his walk home. I really don't know why that's the best thing he could think of. Me, on the other hand, I have some great ideas. I'm scared to wish for them, though.
I put my school uniform and follow the rest of my daily routine for the I go outside I see Arashi waiting for me. I run up to him and walk by his side. "Have you wished for anything else?" he asked me. "No," I reply, "But I do have some thoughts." He stares at me as if to go on. "Hmm, well, anything rich people would have, everything I've ever wanted, to be popular, and to be famous!" He stared at me blankly and started to laugh. I pouted, crossed my arms, and turned my head the other way. "Sorry, but I didn't expect it to be so big like that, but I guess with this dolls anything is possible."
I pulled the doll out of my bag and stared at it. "Maybe I should start with something more simple." He gave me a questioning look. I closed my eyes. " I wish I don't have to go to school ever again." When I opened my eyes, I saw his get wider. He pulled the doll out of his bag, too. "I wish I don't have to go school ever again, also." He opened his eyes again. "Now lets go to school and see what they say." I say. We continue our walk to school.
"Miyako." I heard the teacher at the front of the room call my name. "Yes?" I question. "The principal came here today and said that you no longer have to attend school." She said with a concerned look on her face. I couldn't believe my ears! Amazing! I smiled and ran out the door. I saw Arashi at the end of the hall smiling, too. I didn't bother to close the door behind me as I ran up to him. We ran out the school doors and we ran to the park across the street. We took a seat on a bench inbetween what seemed like thousands of trees.
"Finally! We don't have to wake up so early anymore!" I said excitedly to him. "Yeah, but what about our parents." He said back. " Let's just hang out for the rest of today and then when we go home ask them if we have school tomorrow. If they say something around the lines of 'of course you do' then we can just pretend like we go to school but we don't" I say, happy with my plan. He nods. "What should we do first?" He asks. I think for a while and then get an idea. "Make more wishes!" I say quickly after thinking of it. We both pull our dolls out of our bags. "What are you going to wish for?" He asks me and I shrug. We both think for quite a while.
"How about we wish for things on the list you told me." He says to me. I smile and nod. I start with the first thing. I close my eyes and hold the doll tightly. " I wish I was rich, I had a big house, and I had the prettiest clothes in the world." I open my eyes and smile at Arashi. "Your turn!" I tell him. He closes his eyes. " I wish I was rich, I had a big house, and I had the coolest clothes ever." He opens his eyes and we laugh. I'm so excited I can barely wait to go home. Now for the next thing. "I wish I had all the things I've ever wanted these past two years." I open my eyes again. The reason I wished for things from the past two years was because, what would happen if I got things from when I was five? I could get a baby doll or something. Arashi closes his eyes and repeats my words. We decide to wish for the next thing at the same time for it to be faster. In unison we said the next wish: "I wish I was popular." We open our eyes. "Now, the last wish." I say and he nods. "I wish I was famous." We say together again.
We decide we need to head home. He tells me that he'll text me and we walk off toward our houses. I walk for a while and then I take off running. I can't wait to see my house I can't stand it! I feel like I can't breathe when I reach my so called 'home'. I blink as I stand before a towering castle. It must have one hundred floors! I run up and swing the door open. I smile enormously and run into the huge living room to my right. It has a nice, black leather couch and matching chair. It has a glass table and a huge flatscreen mounted on the wall. There's beautiful paintings mounted on the green walls. Theres a fuzzy green rug on the wooden floor. To my left, there's a dining room. It has a wooden table and wooden chairs. The walls are also green, but with no paintings. Theres a chandelier on the ceiling and a door to the right.
I travel through the closed door to find the kitchen. It has a huge silver fridge to my left. In front of me, theres a black stove. Theres marble countertops and cookwear hanging from the ceiling over a sink and counters in the middle. Theres a microwave above the stove inbetween cabinets. On the right wall, theres another door. I open it and it leads me into a hall. I walk down it and end up in the living room where theres a stairway. I go up the huge stairs. They lead to a hall that goes right and left. I take a left and see that the first door on the left has my name on it. It must be my room. I open and my eyes sparkle. It has purple paint on the walls and a king size bed. Theres a computer and a flatscreen on the wall beside it. There's a closet on the left wall. I open it and it's a walk-in. I walk inside and find thousands of clothes.
I dig through the clothes to find some of the best brands! There's so many shoes I could swim in them! I see cabinets and I look inside them. In one I find undergarments and in the other I find accesories. I close them and leave the closet. beside the closet door, there's another door. I open it and find a bathroom. It has a nice sink with a mirror above it. There's a huge bath with jets. I look in the cabinets under the sink and find many shampoos, conditioners, soaps, lotions, and perfumes. I think about taking a bath and then trying on some of the clothes, but I hear my name being called. "Miyako!" It sounds like my mother.
I run through the halls trying to find the source of the voice. "Miyako! Miyako!" I hear an angry voice through a door beside me. I stop at it and open it. I guess my mother hasn't changed. Most of the time my mother hits me. I guess I'm kind of similar to a dog. No matter what she says or does I still love her. No many how many times you scold a dog they still love you. I open the door and a magazine is shoved into my face. "Ugh! Stupid girl! What is this?!" I grab the magazine and back it away from my face to read it. 'Miyako Karuna and Arashi Harui spotted together in the town!' Eh? I could ask my mother the same thing! A picture of me and Arashi is on this magazine! Is this the wish for us to be famous? The magazine was ripped out of my hands and the next thing I know my face is burning. I put my hand over my cheek. My mom pushes me out of the room and shuts the door.
I run back to my room and grab my phone from my bag that I sat down. When I take it out I realize it isn't the same phone I had earlier today. It's a bigger touchscreen. I fine Arashi's number and I call him. "Arashi, did you see that magazine of us?" "Y-yeah, did you read the article?" He asks me with an embarrased voice. "No. Why?" I question him. "Well, it s-says some things. You should read it yourself, but anyways, my house is amazing! Your is too, I'm guessing?" "Yep, I love it!" "Great! I need to go so I'll see you tomorrow, ok? "Alright, bye!" "Bye!" I hang up my phone and lay down on my bed. I go on the computer and I search the article about me and Arashi.
I find the article and I start reading. 'The couple w-' WHA-WHAT?! I cover my face as I feel it get hotter. They think were a couple! How did this happen! I wonder why my mom was so mad. I'll keep reading. 'Was spotted in the park trying to fit in with the chatting, they went their seperate ways. We all must wonder why. They normally head to their house in the woods to have some private time away from their 's all the details we have now on this.' W-we have a house? Together? In the woods? For private time? What is this crap! I picked up my phone and called Arashi. "What the heck is this?!" I scream into the device, "We don't have a house together! Or d-do we?!" He laughs nervously, "Actually I asked my parents and they said th-that we do.."
Was this why my mom was so mad? Because I didn't go to that house? Knowing her it probably is. "Arashi, go to that house that we apparently have." I say as I walk down the hall to my mom's room. "What but I-" I hang the phone up on him. I knock on her door. "I'm going to my house." I turn around and go down the stairs and outside. I see a limousine in the driveway with a man sitting in the driver's seat. I'm guessing that it belngs to me so I get in the back. "Where to?" the man asks me. "To my, uh, house." He doesn't respond and he starts driving. We head up a mountain that's deep in a forest. We catch up to another limousine. That's probably go deeper into the woods and we reach a enormous log cabin. For teenagers, we have a pretty impressive house. Wait. What am I saying? Teenagers aren't supposed to have their own house!
The man parks behind the other limousine and I hurry to get out. I see Arashi get out and I drag him by the arm into the house and I slam the door behind us. I look around and I just now notice all the walls on this floor are 're so thin people might can hear through them. I take his arm again and drag him up the stairs and I go into the first room I see. I close the door behind us. I turn around me to look at him. When I look at him, I can only see the back of his head. "Arashi?" I see him staring at the bed. My face gets red when I see it. The bed is in the shape of a heart and has red sheets. What is this?! I turn him around to distract him from it. "U-Uh, alright, now what?" he asks. "We need to start staying here, or my mom might force me to." He already knows how my mom is. He nods and I look at a clock in the room. It showed '9:57 P.M.' It's getting late. "I'm going to check the other rooms. There was two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen, dining room, and a lot of empty rooms.
What about another bedroom?! Why isn't there beds in the empty rooms? I walk into the room where I left Arashi. I give a fake smile and nervously laugh. "Yeah, there's not another bedroom.." I say quietly. "What? Well we can just wish for another bed, right?" Why didn't I think of that! "Oh, right! I forgot about that." He takes out his doll and wishes for another bed in one of the empty rooms. He reopens his eyes and opens the door. "Goodnight, Miyako." He smiles at me. I smile back. "Goodnight!" I chirp back. He walks out of the room and closes the door back. I crawl into the strange bed and fall asleep.
