Hi! I’m Jasmine. I am 16 years old and I am really bored with my life. Everyday I just go to school, take the bus back home, eat dinner and then I’m forced to do my homework. Anyways, I just wish I had a more adventurous life.
I was leaving school one afternoon, tired and grumpy, heading towards the bus stop to go home. I was listening to my favourite ballet music on my Ipod.
“I have so much homework!” I complained. I was so distracted in my own thoughts that I hopped on the wrong bus!
I didn't notice that I was all alone on the bus. I sat down and fell asleep.
Hours later, I woke up to the smell of the… ocean? I glared at my surroundings.
I gasped! The bus was on the beach!!!
To make things worse, there was no bus driver!
I didn’t have my phone with me; it got confiscated by my teacher this morning!
I decided to look for a pay phone to call my Mom.
The moment I stepped off the bus, it felt like my feet slipped through the earth! I fell down a deep, dark hole!
My scream echoed in my ears!
Sticky white powder floated in the atmosphere. I had landed in a bed of white marshmallows! I looked around….
Lollipop trees, candy bushes, a steam flowing with hot chocolate, gummy bears, and chocolate bunnies!
I grinned, “WOW!”
Behind me, there bounced a giant gummy bear. I poked him.
“Um, excuse me!?”
He looked down at me with a warm smile.
“Yes?” His voice was warm.
“Where am I?” I asked timidly.
“You are in Candy Paradise, which is ruled by the Sugar Queen!" Then, he bounced away.
I ventured on into the endless maze of artificially coloured lollipop trees. In the distance, I could just about see the outline of a pink palace. I followed the chocolate stone path leading me towards it.
At the entrance, there were two cheerful marshmallow guards.
"Hello there!” I smiled.
“Welcome to Sweets Palace, home of our queen!” answered one of the guards, “Do you have an appointment?”
I contemplated meeting the queen. She might know how I ended up in Candy Paradise.
The guards seemed to be pleased with me! They handed me a necklace, decorated with crystals.
The gigantic doors of the palace slowly opened. As I stepped inside, my feet didn’t find the floor… suddenly I was falling through a deep, dark hole again! This hole smelled like candy, and the air felt sticky!
Finally, I plopped onto my bed. Just then, my alarm clock buzzed.
Like lightning, I quickly sat up! I rubbed my eyes, the tips of my fingers were still sticky! I immediately turned off my irritating alarm and looked in shock at my bed. It was covered in chocolates, gummy bears, marshmallows, hard candy, and all their wrappers!
I remembered last night……...
“Oh! Yeah!” I breathed. My breath smelled awful!
I had sneaked into the kitchen last night and broke into my entire stash of candy! I quickly tidied up the mess. I stared happily at my necklace. After that adventure, I understood the real joy of the world.
