Hoshi The Yoshi - Low-Life To A No-Life
Hoshi Kanari was a girl who lived out in the farm with her father. Her mother had just recently died from a bad heart disease, and just the day before they had a funeral. Hoshi felt as if there was no purpose for life anymore. Her mother was dead, the family was poor, and in just 4 days, a business man was going to buy the farm. Her father, Mr. Kanari was in debt to the business man, and he had nothing to give. He had already given our cattle, our sheep, but the debt is still very big. Hoshi had even overheard her father in his bedroom saying, "I wish I could die so I wouldn't be able to pay a debt, but I still have a child and my wife is dead.". Every afternoon, Hoshi would go to her little secret hideout. The hideout was a little north-east of the house. Her hideout was a tree surrounded by big bushes and the tree had a swing attached to a branch. The hideout was uphill, so when Hoshi would climb the tree, she had a spot with a beautiful view of the landscape and sky. She loved to look at the dawn and the sunset.
"Hoshi! It's time for dinner!", said Mr. Kanari ringing a bell. Hoshi hurried back to the house. "What are we having, papa?", asked Hoshi. "Uh, well....eggs and toast.", said Mr. Kanari. Hoshi groaned and said, "But we already had that for breakfast and lunch!". Mr. Kanari sighed and said, "That's all we have! It's the middle of winter, and we don't have any cows or sheep! We depend on one chicken to give us at least 2 or 4 eggs before every meal! We're stuck eating old bread because we can't afford to throw even that away, cause like I said it's winter and the wheat can't grow!", said Mr. Kanari in frustration. "Sniff, then maybe it's better that I die off like mama....so..sniff, you can eat until you're satisfied.", said Hoshi walking upstairs beginning to cry. Mr. Kanari sighed and said, "You're not eating? You know that's bad for your health.". "I'M NOT HUNGRY!", said Hoshi running to her room.
Hoshi laid down on her bed saying, "I wish....I wish.....mama didn't die!". "Now look. Look at my life. It's nothing to die for. That joy that I had with mama was to die for, not this. I can't stay here! I won't survive!", continued Hoshi, "I wish.......I wish............I had a different life than this one!". Mr. Kanari knocked on the door and said, "Hoshi, dinner's getting cold! You need to eat! Do you wish to eat cold eggs and toast or warm eggs and toast?". "GO AWAY! I SAID I'M NOT HUNGRY!", shouted Hoshi. Mr. Kanari picked the lock and opened the door. "I SAID, 'GO AWAY'!", Hoshi yelled throwing a book at her father. Her father grabbed the book. "This book was your mothers. Remember? I ask you: do you still treasure your mother's belongings?", inquired her father. Hoshi bursted into tears. "Papa, I want a different life!", she said. "I know. I do, too. That's something all people in tough spots share in common.", said Mr. Kanari. "But who knows, maybe tomorrow will be a better day.", said Mr. Kanari. "Maybe.....", said Hoshi.
The next morning, Hoshi got out of bed feeling dizzy. "Hm....it's 5:42 AM. I should go back to bed.", said Hoshi. As she went back into her covers, she looked in the direction that her hideout was in. ".......WHAT?!?", she said in shock. There was smoke coming from the spot next to where the hideout tree was in. Hoshi jumped out of bed, rushed downstairs, and ran into the fields shouting, "TRESPASSER!". When she got to the hideout, she saw to her left that there was a big crater in the ground. "HEY! WHAT'S WITH THE CRATER, TRESPASSER!?", she shouted. But no one was around. "Maybe they ran off. But I can't let them get any closer to my hideout. This place means....EVERYTHING to me!", Hoshi said. "I know, I'll wait here.", she said sitting in the swing. She began to swing herself back and forth as she waited. "Where, oh where are you, trespasser...?", Hoshi thought. suddenly, she looked behind her to see a large gap in the ground next to the tree. ".........Hey, when did that get there?", Hoshi thought. she stood up and got near the hole. Hoshi dropped a stick in the hole. The hole acted like and its matter splashed when the stick fell in. "Weird....", said Hoshi. Hoshi thought for a second, then she had the idea of sticking her finger in. "Well, it acts like water. But I wonder if it feels like water...", thought Hoshi. Hoshi put her finger in and moved it around in a circle in the hole. She giggled and said, "It even feels like water!". Then Hoshi dipped her whole hand in it. It still felt like water. Then she put her forearm in it. Thinking before that it would feel different, it still felt like water. Suddenly, she felt a strange hand hold onto her hand, and it pulled her arm in. "Hey! This is a trick!", said Hoshi. "Hey! Someone help! HEEEEEELP!!!!!", she cried for help, yanking her arm out. The hole expanded, and she fell in screaming.
"AH!", said Hoshi popping out of bed. "Wait...wasn't I just here about half an hour ago?", thought Hoshi looking around. "Dejavou.", she said. She looked at her hands and they were white. "Am I that scared on the inside?", thought Hoshi. She looked in the mirror and screamed. She was in a white hoodie with white pants, blue shoes, and had red scale-like things on her back. and she was wearing a red shell on her back. her face and head seemed normal, but she had a strange white hat on. She stared at her reflection. "Uh....ha....ha. Papa!!! When did you get this costume!?", she said rushing downstairs. But she was alone. No one else was in the house. She opened the front door and she was astonished.
