Curious minds can not be stopped, so she did the one thing she knew best to do. Throw a tantrum! So she threw herself down and just when she thought she was about to be dramatic, drama skipped class.
Mona found herself floating in the air, shock quickly turned into panic. She began throwing her hands and paddling her feet but nothing was helping.
“You see Mona, you could never outdo me. I am your best friend but we can be enemies too. Don’t try me.”
A roar of laughter scared her so much she wet her pants. It switched from mean and evil, to a very soft and loving laugh.
“Who are you?” Mona asked with a trembling voice.
“My dear, I love you so much. If there is one thing you must know I CANNOT stand little tricks and tantrums. I will give you the information you need when you need it. Understood?”
Before she knew it Mona was moving higher and higher, with one swoop she found herself back on the ground. Her heart was beating so fast, she thought it would tear her chest.
Her eyes weren’t filled with curiosity anymore, there was just fear. “So much for trying to eliminate fear in me…” she thought to herself.
“Yes I know, but that’s how it works darling.”
She threw a face filled with shock to her grandmother who burst into laughter, only this time it wasn’t scary.
“When will you learn? There is nothing you can hide from me, yet.”
She winked at her and signaled for Mona to follow her. With very little enthusiasm she followed behind her grandmother, she tried not to throw insults at her considering she could read minds.
From nowhere she felt like she was walking into a wall. She could see her grandmother but something was in her way, she kept trying but she was failing.
Her grandmother stopped, turned around and smirked. She sat down, closed her eyes, face-up, and after 30secs a table with so much food and beverages appeared in front of her.
“Test number one, break the wall, and come join me at this table.”
Mona was tired, hungry, thirsty, and annoyed. She didn’t want to do this anymore, it was too hard and all she thought about was failing this entire test.
“I know, it feels hard but if you could walk through trees surely an invisible wall shouldn’t be anything to you, ” her grandmother said whilst sipping on what seemed to be ice-cold water.
“How am I supposed to do this grandmother?”
“Stop fearing pain my darling.”
