Chapter 1 – The Wish I Made This Summer

It was late and nothing was on TV worth watching, but I had to stay up. My name is Emily. I don't hate my name, but, if I could, I would gladly change it to something less… common. People say I look a lot like my mom, but when they look closer, they can see some of my dad in me. I have brown hair and brown eyes, like my mom, and I have my dad's sense of humor.

Anyways, the reason I'm up so late is because my dad said he had a surprise for me when he got home. He said I could only have it if I was awake by the time he stepped through the door. Problem is he doesn't come home until 10pm.

Just then, I heard the front door open. I wanted to bolt off the couch and ask for my surprise, but I didn't. Instead, I sat there, like I had completely forgotten about it. My dad walks into the kitchen and sets his keys down. I look over at him from my spot on the couch.

"Hi, Dad. How was work?" I noticed he had some scratches on his face.

"It was good, until my latter fell."

'That would explain the scratches,' I thought. "Are you alright?" I got up and walked into the kitchen, to sit at the table.

"Yeah, no need to call 911," he said, jokingly.

I playfully stuck my tongue at him. He just laughed at my child-like manner.

"So," I said, trying to be somewhat casual, "where's the surprise you promised me?"

He smiled. "Oh. I promised you something?"

"Dad!" He chuckled and began to dig around in his bag. When he pulled out my surprise, my jaw dropped. It was a Transformers Animated Bumblebee action figure! I did a girlish scream, took the toy, and hugged it tight.

"Oh my gosh! I love it! Where'd you get him?"

He smiled, glad that I like it. "A friend of mine was going to give to his nephew, but he found out the kid doesn't like Transformers, so he asked people at work if anyone wanted it."

"Well, it's that kid's loss. Thank you so much!" I tried to stifle a yawn.

"You should head to bed. Don't want to be tired for the first day of summer vacation, do you?"

"You're right. Thanks again for getting me Bumblebee." I headed upstairs, into my room. It was a descent sized room. The walls were blue and so were the sheets on my bed. My furniture was a light brown. I had a computer desk, dresser, nightstand, and full-size bed. As soon as I locked the door, I, sort of, skipped over to my 'Wall of Transformers'. I had all my favorites, so far.

For the Autobots, there was Optimus Prime, Ratchet, Bulkhead, Prowl, Blurr, Jazz, Sentinel, Jetfire, Jetstorm, and, now, Bumblebee! For the Decepticons, I had Megatron, Blitzwing, Starscream, Wasp, Lockdown, Thundercracker, Skywarp, and Sunstorm.

I set Bumblebee down next to Bulkhead and Prowl. I went to the bathroom and got ready for bed. I came out wearing a plaid nightgown my mom got me last Christmas. When I went back to my room, I grabbed Bumblebee off the self.

"You're going to sleep with me tonight."

I crawled into bed and laid Bumblebee down next to me. I lay down and stared out my window. It was a beautiful clear night. We live out in practically nowhere, so the sky was always littered with stars. The moon was full and seemed to have a faint blue glow. Just as I was about to close my eyes, I saw a shooting star streak across the sky.

"Oh, I need to make a wish!" I quickly sat up and concentrated really hard on my wish. What do I wish for?

"Um, I wish that something amazingly unexpected would happen to me over break. Something that would make this the best vacation ever."

After yawning again, I lay back down and cuddled Bumblebee close. I was soon fast asleep, dreaming of how I would spend my summer. I never even noticed the faint blue glow emanating from all my Transformer toys.
