October 3rd 2040,A girl with long dark brown hair, wearing a black dress looking at a goth is writing in her dining room, when she hears her door open, and hears a voice "Mariah, you believe what happened to me today".
The voice is revealed to be a girl who has smooth black hair, wearing a red shirt, blue jeans, and white shoes holding two grocery bags.
That girl is me, Kanisha Walker, a fourteen-year-old girl.
"What happened?" asked Mariah, distracted in her writing.
I walked up to Mariah, seeing she's working on her comic, Mariah looks up and covers her comic with her hand.
"Mariah, was that your new comic? Man, I spoiled it for myself", I complained, as I put the groceries on the table.
"It's okay, I was going to show you anyway", Mariah tells me, as she's blushing.
I smiled, then started to push a chair aside.
"What's it about?" I asked, sitting beside Mariah.
"Before I tell you that, what was your story you were about to tell me?" Mariah asks me with a smile.
"Oh yeah! So, I was at this antique shop getting this necklace, when I saw this drunk that thought he was in a restaurant and kept asking for a chicken salad. The owner kept telling him, he's in the wrong place, but the man wouldn't listen and took the wooden wand and says, "begone". As an apology, the owner gave me this necklace", I explained.
Mariah and I laughed.
"So, what's the necklace supposed to do?" asked Mariah, looking at it.
"It's supposed to make your dream come true", I said.
"How about we make a wish of entering this world?" wondered Mariah.
Mariah shows her comic.
"Great idea", I nodded.
A bright light takes us away.
We knew it, were being sucked into a different dimension.
The necklace appears on my neck, as I'm holding onto Mariah as we fell into an orange realm that is in-between our world and another.
A second later, we ended up in a bedroom with a closet, carpet, a bunch of picture frames, a queen-size bed, and a wooden door.
I shaked Mariah, who was asleep.
Mariah opens her eyes, and asks me "Kanisha, is that you?"
"Duh! Why wouldn't it be?" I answered.
Mariah reached into her pocket, but no mirror, so she pushed me by the closet, which had a big mirror in it.
I saw right in front of me through the mirror is a halo above my head, light black hair instead of my dark hair, a face I didn't recognize, and I'm wearing a white suit.
As I look closer, I noticed I'm not a girl, but a boy, this makes me look at Mariah, who looks shorter, has a black suit, her hair hasn't changed, she has two antennas with arrows at the end, a long tail that looks like the antennas, she resembles what you call a devil from TV.
Not only that, but she has been changed into a boy too.
We both look in the mirror wondering why this is happening.
Mariah points to my necklace.
"Of course, it must be magic. Wait, magic doesn't exist, does it?" I said.
"How else do you explain this?" asked Mariah.
"It's a horrible dream", I said.
Mariah grabbed a glass vase that was holding some flowers, put the flowers on the table, and threw it out the window.
It breaks once it hits the ground, then a voice says "Hey! Who threw that?"
"Nope, this isn't a dream otherwise that would've never broke", Mariah confirmed.
"You do realize that was probably expensive", I said.
"Yep, but I don't care, because we are stuck in a different dimension", said Mariah, with her eyes looking darker than normal.
"Mariah, are you okay?" I asked, seeing a red aura around her.
Mariah looks at me, and says, "I'm fine".
But, I could tell she was lying because fire started spreading everywhere, Mariah looked at.
I hugged Mariah, and says, "We will get out of here, so calm down".
That's when the door opens revealing a woman who has long red hair, wearing a red dress, and red heels with a smile upon her face.
"Who are you?" asked Mariah, still holding onto me.
"Arima Shoma, nice to meet you, Kanisha and Mariah", said the woman.
"How do you know about us?" I asked.
"My dear, I own this lovely place, so I know anybody who enter", Arima answers my question, as she sits on the bed.
"Do you know why we were sent here?" asked Mariah.
"It was because of the necklace upon your neck, Kanisha. As for you returning, I'm afraid you won't be able to leave", said Arima.
"Why? Why not?" I asked.
"The necklace is cursed, you may get to go where you want, but you can't return to where you were", said Arima. "Plus judging by your appearance is still switches genders".
"So, we're stuck here", said Mariah, as she falls on the carpet.
"How do you know this, do all people land here who make a wish?" I asked, angry.
"My, my, of course not, each person has a different person to guide them in the new world they got sent to. I am one of those people", said Arima. "Because of that you two will be under my supervision, and thus I suggest you not to get yourselves killed or runaway".
"You have extra rooms", I assumed.
"But, of course this is a mansion and a mistress like me loves Company, so I prepared your rooms", Arima smiled.
Mariah walks out the room, and bumps into a into who has short spiky black hair, wearing a black suit, who catches her.
"Be careful, my little devil", said the man.
Arima and I walk out of the room to see Mariah and the man.
"Let go of him", I said, with a purple aura around me.
"Kanisha, it's not what you think, he just caught me, and he can let me go", said Mariah.
The man let's Mariah gl, and lands by me and Arima.
"Clay, what are you doing back so early?" asked Arima.
"I'm bored, since my job was finished early, because of the fire", said Clay.
"Fire?" Mariah and I questioned.
"No was hurt, were they?" asked Arima.
"Who knows who cares", replied Clay. "I have nothing to do".
"Poor Clay, I have an idea", said Arima. "Your room is in the second hallway on the left, let's go Clay, I know what will cheer you up".
Mariah and I walk where Arima pointed to, at two doors with our names on it, we see a boy around our age with brown hair, wearing a brown suit putting flowers in the vase.
Mariah and I noticed this boy looks handsome and has a bright aura around him.
"Okay, you can stop staring, I'm just arranging flowers", said the boy that noticed us.
Mariah and I blushed from embarrassment.
"Sorry, we didn't want to disturb you", I admitted.
The boy bows his head, and says "I'm Chisu, the butler of this mansion, pleased to meet you".
"I'm Kanisha and this is Mariah", I introduced myself.
"It seems the portal still switches gender, by the way while you're here you might want to refrain from revealing your true identities, so keep it a secret", said Chisu.
"Understood", I said, playing along.
"I hope you enjoy your stay here", said Chisu, and walked away.
"I guess, we will be living here", I said, trying to remain calm.
"Why? Why are you so calm? We're stuck in a dimension where we know nobody and can't return and worst of all we have to hide ourselves why?" wondered Mariah, as she started to cry.
"I'm calm because if I freaked out, you would never be calm", I replied.
"I don't need you to do that, I just need you to be with me and be honest", said Mariah, hugging me, while crying.
"Alright", I said.
Mariah opens my door, and sits on my bed.
"You don't want to go into your own room?" I asked.
"No, besides it feels weird being alone here, plus I can't get over this new body", Mariah spoke honestly.
"Yeah, I mean we have read manga like this, and watch anime, but I never imagined it would ever happen", I said.
"So, true", said Mariah.
We hear a knock on the door, and a voice says "Would you like some chocolate croissants with a drink?"
We look at each other for a moment and nod.
"Sure, bring it in", said Mariah.
A man who has long spiky brown hair, wearing a black shirt, blue Jean's, a white hat, apron, pulls a cart in with a tray on the top with a bunch of chocolate croissants and two cups.
The man smiles, walks over to us, and kisses my hand, then he says "Nice to meet you, I'm Toro, this mansion's personal chef".
"Pleasure", I ssid.
Toro does the same for Mariah and she has the same response as me.
Toro's watch beeps, so he leaves the tray on the bed, pushes the cart out, and says "Hope you enjoy your stay here and the food".
"Thank you", I said, waving goodbye.
Mariah starts drinking.
"What kind of drink is this?" I asked, then started drinking too.
A mysterious figure walks by the room, hearing us and stops by the door.
"It's sweet", said Mariah.
"Yeah, but off", I said.
"Kind of, but not really", said Mariah.
What we didn't realize was it was wine.
The mysterious figure smiles.
