"If you could wish for anything in the world, what would it be?"
I was asked this question out of nowhere and it caught me off guard. If anyone could grant me a wish, though, it would be the one who asked me this question.
*If I could wish for anything..*
That question swam around in my head. Money? Power, perhaps? Fame? Fame might be nice. I've always wanted to be noticed more, and fame implies the other two.
"I know what you want!" came an answer from the asker, "You want to fly!"
The ground parted ways with my feet as the boy took a firm grip of my midsection and, in one smooth motion, reeled back and threw me across the room.
As my plastic and stoic face smashed into the wall, I had an answer. I wish my soul had never been awakened in this doll.
