I know it is too late to enter, but here is my story.
One day,I was wondering around my house when I found a watch.I put it on and then, when I turned the knob on the side,a sudden bright, neon yellow, light appered all around me.
Next thing I realized, is I standing in the middle of a golden, city filled with diamond windows, and copper streetways.The lights that lined the city streets had pearls for lightbulbs-the biggest I had ever seen. When I walked through,people about my age,came up to me and handed me a pearl, diamond, golden, and velvet crown on top of just the same cusion.Some came up behind me and placed the crown on top of my head.They broung me to a castle that looked like it had been there for no longer than five seconds, it was more luxurious by far from the rest of the houses.Gaurds with diamond spears opened the doors for me and let me through.While I was being pulled along by these strange, but rich people, More gaurds came up behind me, and put the softest, diamond-studded cape made out of golden threads, it must've taken years to make because the threads were barely noticable.They then called me King.
After a while of staking a stroll of what is now my city, and castle,I found out that the people were called Ijas.The Ijas directed me to my throne where I sat. peasants, came up to me with a strange-purple juice they call Erter, the erter tasted like bannas mixed with strawberries, and a pinch of an indescribable flavor.Next they broung me Sufer, a golden bread that you can eat.The Sufer tasted like cherries, rassbarries,blueberries and peaches. The finall thing they brought me was a what seemed to be a carved turkey, but when I took a bite, it made me want the jump of a cliff for more, (but of course I wouldn't do that to my people) it tasted like turkey, ham, icecream ,and anything you crave.It was called Fores, the livestock they had in their farms,it was normally fattened to increase the flavor and when it died they carved it and made it ready to eat.
Last thing I did there, was go to say "Goodbye" to all of my people. The Ijas put me in an open horse carrige,With of course a diamond sides, and the seats were made out of gold.I walked through the streets ,and I noticed that everyone who lived there were waving at me.ALmost everyone who were in the city cheered and threw golden strips of silk.I asked to be stopped off at the area I had arrived at, and said,"Well I have enjoyed my stay here, but my wolrd needs me."I'm glad they understood, but they let me keep the things they had given to me to keep as a reminder of their world.I waaved my final goodbyes and turned the knob again.The bright neon yellow light appeared again and I had returned home.
That watch I found I found my own little word and became king of it.Also because of that watch, and the Ijas, I had a memory that no one else had,A cape made of diamond-encrusted, and golden threads, and a pearl, diamond, golden, and velvet crown.
