Secret Chocolate!

Anushka Chadha

Plit pat, plit pat! The rain was splattering on my clear bedroom window. Suddenly, I heard the strangest noise. It sounded like a UFO! I peeped out of my window, but saw nothing. Just that the rain looked a lot different than usual. Curiously, I tiptoed down the wooden steps. As I cautiously opened the door, I heard laughing. Who would laugh in the middle of the night? I thought. On the middle area of land in our neighborhood, I saw children running around in this mysterious rain! As I stuck out my hand, I felt chocolate! But I saw an eerie green-yellow light so I swung my hand in, locked the door and went back to bed.

Once it was morning, and the sun was peachy, I was ready to go to school. I was getting on the school bus when I could smell the most creamiest smell of chocolate! “Mmmm…” All the kids were white chocolate!!! Why, I could eat them all! But no, they’re my friends. Maybe it was the strange light that converted the kids into chocolate, I thought. Even a pot on the bus was chocolate! Something just deep down told me that I needed to save those kids.

As I darted into the school, I noticed a strange girl, hidden behind all the kids that were dripping with white chocolate in the heat. She was not chocolatized! Suddenly, I felt a strange feeling in my legs. They started automatically skipping towards her. Just like that, she took out her finger, and pointed it at herself. I kept pacing in the hot midday weather. As I approached her, she said “I know how to break the spell.” And as she continued, she told me the secret of Anokhi…… Suddenly, I was going back in time.

“Magic is now within me, magic is now within me,” I perpetually muttered. I was going back in time at warp speed and arrived in Forbidden City. I saw people scuttling around and kings shouting out orders. Going back in time was an adventure.  I was a stranger in Forbidden City. “Who is this strange girl?” whispered a man in Chinese accent. He gave me a disgusted look.  “I- I am looking for Anokhi,” I stammered. “ I am right here!” exclaimed the man next to him.  “I-I need the Blue Cocoa please,” I mumbled. “Well here it is!” he said shooting out his hand. It was a small ball, blue in color and practically glowing! Soon I was going to my time again!

Zoom, Zoom! I was now riding back on my motor scooter. The ball clutched in my hand, I was roaming around at my school. I started to look for the perfect spot, under the sun. As soon as I found it, I placed the Blue Cocoa in the middle of a green spot on the tennis court. Out of the blue, everything turned back to its original look! My smile beamed like the moon! I checked out back, and sure enough, everything was back to how it was!!

I was sooo  happy that my friends were back!!!
