I ran away from all the pain, anger, and hatred I felt for not being able to speak my mind and found myself hiding in a dark cave, drenched in both rain and tears just under the overpass, hidden beneath a hill.
Before I knew it I had fallen asleep, shivering and aching from the ground below.
Upon waking I realized I was no longer human, or at least, I was not as big as a human.
My clothes piled around me in heaps it seemed.
Someone is yelling my name, someone who’s voice is yearned for but. . not welcome.
Footsteps approach and worry in their voice screams out with each word.
“I’m here! I’m here!” I yell uncontrollably. I don’t want to see you, but what other choice do I have?
Taken aback by my size, you crept up to me.
I can see tears in your eyes and your whole body is trembling in. . sadness? Fear?
Picking me up carefully, you slide me into your pocket, letting the warmth of your coat embrace me.
“I’m sorry my wish came true.”
