If You Wish It

"If you wish it."

Please don't go. Please, say you won't go. Say you won't leave me here.

"If you wish it?"

I don't. Don't you dare wish it, either. Just smile and laugh and make-believe, just for a little while longer.

"If you wish it!"

She doesn't say a word. Why isn't she saying anything? Why isn't she saying that she doesn't want that, doesn't want to go home and grow up?

Because she does. Don't be stupid; you're deficient, remember?

Give up. She's leaving you. And then she'll forget all about you and the adventures you shared.
