What Would Happen If...

Dear Diary, 

I woke up today with one of my neighbors, good friend, Tony Armstrong knocking on my window.   When I got there I noticed him barly hanging on to the old oak tree outside my bedroom, in a two-story red brick house.

"I need your help!  I have gotten in so much trouble.   I need you to take care of this, you know, kind of, what it’s about.   I have told you about it right?" Tony rambled trembaling soving it in my hand , looking around for his parents making sure they weren’t watching.   Then ran off in to the mid-morning light.

I was sick today, so I didn’t go to school.   When he got on the bus I closed my window, and went to bed until…

"Marisa, honey.   Time to get up, and eat the soup I made for you!  It is near lunch time!” my mom said.

When I got out of bed I picked up the velvet bag Tony gave me earlier this morning.   It has a small glowing mirror fragment with a note about the powers.  ”Dear Marisa," it stated, "this is one of the seven mirror pieces.  I broke it, and you would not think it is a big deal, but it is! It has special powers, please keep an eye on this while I’m at school.   See you at 4:00 p.m.   Get well!”  I read it and then I kept wondering about it.

Then my curiosity got the better of me, and I knew I had the power to move stuff from one place to the other with my mind.   So that is exactly what I did.

When I got the fragments I glue them back together and I wanted to see what else it could do.  So I said “Go to Oreo Dimension… and POOF.  I was there!
  I looked at the blue sky and the cookie and the cream cloud with oreos falling from them, and then I thought, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF?
