The wish and the fortune cookie
“Ohh! I always wanted to be king, ruling a whole world, everyone would love me, but I will have a few enemies I would want to turn to good, humble people. I know it is too much to ask, but I want this to happen.” I said.
“And I will be his adviser, who tells the king what is right and wrong. Help him make decisions and be is best friend.” My best friend, Murata gave me a friendly jab on my shoulder, and winked.
“Ouch!” I exclaimed in the light pain I got, I am very sensitive, trust me. Murata laughed. “Ha-ha very funny,” I said sarcastically.
“Don’t you remember?” Murata asked, he kept asking me the same question all day.
“remember what?” I was very angry at him, but I did not show my anger, instead, I just smiled.
I was sitting in a restaurant, opening a fortune cookie, honestly, I did not believe in them, I just opened them for fun. The weirdest thing happened, the paper in the cookie read, Your wish is to be granted in 15 minutes and you shall need to go in a puddle. And in the back, Everything is true, you’ve got to believe this, if you don’t, you are wasting your biggest opportunity in your life. This is so weird, even murata got the same thing written on his. We opened all the cookies, and believe me, it was true.
We looked at each other in confusion, and decided to believe in it. I prayed for forgiveness, so that if it did not work, I would be forgiven. I knew exactly where I can find a puddle, near the baseball field I always practiced in. we reached that puddle. Only an inch away. 14 minutes had already past. When the clock reached 15 minutes on the dot, both of us were pushed in the water. But nobody pushed us, we were getting sucked into the water.
There was the noise of water all around me, I closed my eye tight until the sound of water was gone. I opened my eyes to find something beyond belief.
