3: This is dedicated to my siblings, because they are a great inspiration in my life. And knowing all the wishes and dreams they have just inspires me. This is my thanks to him and a way to say that i love them more than anything.
5: Once upon a time there was a girl named Priscilla. Priscila is a young girl who lives with her parents in Bangkok. She is eight years old and is quite different from other girls in her age.
7: Since she was a baby, her parents told her tales, so Priscilla grew up to be a dreamy girl with twinkly eyes. Priscilla's parents never tried to stop her dreams. They believed her great imagination was a unique personality of hers.
9: Years later when Priscilla was a bit older, she wanted to overcome her fear of heights; so she decided to go on a journey in order to help herself. Taking her favorite pink bag-pack and her teddy bear to protect her, Priscilla left her parents’ house and went far away from them. Priscilla had to fight hard to hold her tears, because she knew the journey would last a long time.
11: Priscilla walked through the woods and climbed over the mountains, alone. Her journey was not always pleasant: it rained occasionally and was thus very cold. After a week, Priscilla was very tired, because she could not find anything that would help her overcome her fear of heights. Nonetheless, Priscilla kept traveling, without any companion to talk to or get help from.
13: Two weeks passed, and Priscilla was still alone. But, suddenly, she heard a beautiful and tremulous voice; surprisingly, it was as soft as that of a girl of her own age. Frightened and not knowing what awaited her from behind, Priscilla turned slowly with her eyes closed. She trembled as she turned, but as she opened her eyes, she saw a beautiful girl. This girl’s name was Madika, and she too was alone; her parents had died in an accident
15: Priscilla felt sympathy for the girl, and offered to walk beside her for a while. After they had traveled together for some time, Madika told Priscilla that her dream was to fly high, but Priscilla told her that she was afraid of heights. So, together, the two girls made a pact. Madika promised Priscilla that she would find something to help to defeat her fear of heights. Then, the girls that were now like sisters set out on a brand new journey.
17: A few days later, as they were walking along the shoreline, Madika saw something shiny that caught her attention. Immediately, she went over, grabbed it, and saw that it was an emerald ring. On it, there was an inscription that said: "Thank you for picking me up; to express my gratitude, I will grant you five wishes." The girls jumped for joy because they had finally found something that could help them achieve their goals. Knowing that they had found the solution to help Priscilla, Madika hastily closed her eyes and wished for Priscilla to have wings so that she could fly and see the world. Suddenly Priscilla yelled, "No, no, do not do that, please!" Madika was scared, and with her big eyes trembling she said, "What have I done? Have I said something I should not have said? Priscilla replied, "No, it is just that we have only recently met. I want us to spend more time together. I do not want to fly away so soon.” Madika sadly replied, "You are right, sister. I know what you mean, and I also feel the same now that you say so. But this has always been your big dream, and I really want it to become a reality." Priscilla replied, “I know, and I really do appreciate the fact that you care about my dreams and wishes, but travelling with you for these past months, I have realized that dreams may change, and that new dreams can arise and make you realize what you really want. If I have to give up my dream to be able to stay and have more adventures with you, then I will, because dreams and wishes is not that important, I think that having somebody by your side is better than having a wish come true while you are alone with no one to share it with. Madika, I want you to come home with me. I want you to become my sister! My parents wont have anything against it, and they would be really happy.” Crying, Madika replied, “Priscilla, thank you. I do not think there are words that could explain my feelings right now. With all the joy of my heart, I do accept your offer. Thank you, sister.”
19: And so, giving up her dream of flying, both girls--or should I say, sisters--travelled homeward. Madika and Priscilla drew closer to each other and became members of the same family. Many years later, Priscilla took some piloting lessons, so that she could get over her fear. The girls gave the emerald that they had found to people that needed it more than they. And they lived happily...ever...together. The End
