  • One morning I was sitting by a fountain watching people pass by. A friend once told me: "Life is a stage". Well, it definitely is.

    Suddenly the main character of this day comes by. An old man carrying an unusual artifact: some sort of chain, with a magnet in its tip. His washed-out eyes were scanning all over the fountain, desirous for a coin. As soon as he found one, he would make use of his modest apparatus to easily take it away.

    I soon realized I wasn't watching an old coin thief. I was staring at a wish stealer.

    Is a stolen wish a shared dream?
