Chapter One: Be Careful What You Wish For…

"Maxine Mammoth! You have got to stop this crazy obsession with Ice Age!"

"But MOM! Even my last name has to do with Ice Age! It's destiny!"

I ran up to my room and slammed the door. That woman would never understand. No one does, and no one ever will. Only the Ice Age characters themselves would understand my love for them. I fell in love with each individual character ever since the movie poster was posted back in 2002. I'd grown emotionally attached to each character, especially the mammoth, Manny. What can I say; I'm a mammoth too. Well, I'm not an actual mammoth, that's just my last name.

I fell onto my Ice Age bedspread and cried into my Ice Age pillowcases. It was painful, knowing my mom hated what I worshiped. She's been trying to stop my obsession since we walked out of the movie theatre after the midnight showing.

I reached for my Ice Age plushes and held them close. Through my sobs, I sniffled "I-I'll ne-never stop loving you guys!"

I crawled from my bed and over to my window. I threw back my Scrat covered curtains and opened the windows to look at the sky. The stars sparkled like diamonds in a mine of wonder. I looked to no particular star and chanted, "Star light, star bright. First star I see tonight. Wish I may, wish I might, have my wish come true tonight. I wish to be with the real Ice Age characters!" The star twinkled brighter as if considering my wish then went back to its normal glow.

Back to my bed I went, and looked to the Ice Age poster above my backboard. "Night Manny, Sid, Diego, Crash, Eddie, Ellie, Buck, Peaches, Scrat, and Scratte. God Bless You."

Before shutting my eyes to enter slumber, I clenched my fist around a sparkling blue locket that hung from my neck. It contained a small picture of the herd, so they would always be close to my heart…
