“Today we will not have the written test on fractions. Instead we will tell stories.”
All the students cheered and clapped. Jimmy knew his wish came true. What he didn’t know was that his teacher had hoped for them to tell fraction stories today. She had decided to use oral assessment based on the popping of one wishbone.- @mineopoly

Then it came to Chi and Femi's turn.
"I wish to be happy". He said as if it wasn't what he truly wanted.
"I wish you weren't married to Kyla but me". Chi said with a very cold smile not minding the look on their faces. Her husband, Francis was dead silent, his eyeballs turning blue with his fist clenched. He was angry but Chi didn't care.
Femi was speechless. it was his innermost wish but he dared not to say it out loud. He avoided the eyes of Kyla and Francis who were waiting long for his response but he couldn't bring himself to speak.- @abigail04

If wishes were bones

He finally walked in while my mom, still wearing one of her most excited faces locked the door. This stranger walked directly towards me and knelt right in front of me, then he took my hand and kissed it. I could feel the warmth that came with the kiss but I was still very confused, what in heavens name was going on. My mom could read the confusion in my eyes as she too knelt down beside this stranger.- @chincoculbert

A Bone's Wish

“Miracles don’t happen. Luck doesn’t happen, but life does.”
“You’re wrong,” he said with dignity in his inexperienced eyes. He was holding back his tears. “Miracles happen. Because seven years ago, my older brother was diagnosed with congenital heart disease, but a kind man donated his heart to him. And it was you. You died, but saved my brother’s life.”
I was stunned and couldn’t find the words to express my emotions. I knew I was a skeleton incapable of feeling, but I had that weird burst of sensation upon hearing what he said.- @idlemind

A Wish Comes True

Maro then told Samuel to make a wish while she listened to what he had to say. Samuel then said loudly that "mum, dad!!! I wish the two of you are here to see my success. My wish is for you two to help me to win this scholarship".
When Maro heard this statement, she became angry and left him behind. Then, they went for the exams and indeed his wish came to pass. He made it through and was victorious. He was the best out of all that went for the exams. He was so happy and after getting home, he immediately went to his parent's grave to tell them about his success. - @cool08

Cony and her grandfather's treasure

-I think I lost them," said the girl almost breathlessly.
But that was only the beginning, and when she looked up, Cony noticed that the skies were moving as if they were the sea itself, where a huge whale with a bell around it was residing. It seemed to also claim the coin Cony carried in her hand, and so our little girl was chased by pirates, a giant cat and a huge whale.
Cony crouched down and simply did not want to look around, and felt guilty for having taken that coin, until between whispers and tears, she remembered what her grandfather always told her: "Never let your imagination die". - @cajiro
