Wishing for 15
A Dragon Tales Fanfiction
Chapter 1: Wanting to Be Bigger and Older
Description: Max (6) has been facing problems ever since he started 1st Grade. He wanted it to be very acceptable for him, but it is much worse than he expected. His main problem is that he is too small for a lot of activities. He also wanted to go on several rides despite that he was too young. And finally, he has been bullied by 3rd Graders who make him sad for their disrespectful words about how young he is and how he will never be as big as them for anytime in his life. Thankfully, his sister Emmy (8) and their good friend Enrique (also 8) support him. But no matter how many times they tell the bullies to quit bullying him, they continue to do so. Eventually, Max decides to make a wish to be bigger and older after deciding to fight them and get annoyed of their words, showing the bullies that he can grow up to be a man. So one day, he goes to Dragon Land to tell his Dragon Friends his wish. But they wonder if that can even happen. Quetzal says that is impossible unless you see a human wizard in Dragon Land who has that power. But they are warned that something bad might happen. Max, however, goes out before Quetzal gives him that information, followed by his friends. They find the wizard in the mountains. He says that his wish will be granted to those who need him most. Max tells him what his situation is and he wishes to be bigger and older. The wizard asks Max to tell him to customize his age. Max tells him that he wants to be as old as Emmy and her age in 7 years. The wizard tells him that he can make the wish, but before he could tell him the only problem, Max shakes his stick, casting the wish and causing him to go to sleep. His friends react to what happened. They learn that they will have to wait. 7 years pass by and Max wakes up in his room, but when he goes to the mirror to see what he looks like, he notices the calendar and sees that 7 years truly have passed. He wonders why as he goes into the bathroom, where he is given a big surprise.
We will only discuss major characters for the story. Anyone else will just be minor.
Max Montez: The protagonist. He is bullied for his size and age. He wishes to be older to show them. So one day, when he goes to Dragon Land and finds a wizard, he is given a surprise as his wish to be 15 years old changes him into a new person who is 15 years old. Throughout the story, he is a normal freshman at a High School his sister and good friend Enrique goes to. He falls in love with someone and sees the bullies who harassed him years ago. They bully other people, but he stops them multiple times in the story wondering why they are still bullying others. Eventually, he notices photos of himself and realizes what he caused. He learns about that his life as a High School freshman was just an alternate life and caused his true self to have committed suicide due to the bulling. This causes him to try to return to his old life 7 years ago. The next day, his problem with the bullies ends.
Clay Acarius: Max's alter ego when his wish is made. He wakes up 7 years later as Emmy's age. He learns about stuff he will do when he will actually be older. He falls in love with a girl and stops the same bullies he was harassed by many times before finding out what happened to his real ego. He reveals his true identity to Emmy before he starts planning to return back to his time, but not before giving his girlfriend a kiss. He is revealed also to be one of the wizard's servants and helps Max with his problem in his time.
Emmy Montez: Max's sister. She helps Max when he is bullied for his size and age. She keeps telling the bullies to stop harassing Max, even though they continue to bully him. She knows of Max's wish to be older and bigger to show the bullies that he can be bigger. After Max makes his wish, she finds him (as Clay) in his bed (she does not find out he is Max until later in the story) one morning 7 years later. She helps Max as Clay get through is new life and finds out first that Max is Clay. In the end, she helps Max return to his old life.
Enrique Sanchez: A good friend of Emmy and Max who, like Emmy, helps Max when he is bullied and knows of Max's wish to be bigger and older. However, when he meets Clay 7 years later, he notices his concern for Max, up to the reveal of Clay's identity, which is indeed Max. Learning that Emmy is helping Max get back to his time, he decides to assist him as well.
Ace: Max's girlfriend as Clay. They meet one day when he makes his school's football team win a game for his efforts to lead the team to the championship. Constantly when they are together, the bullies are seen harassing 7th graders Clay knows as his friends that were in his grade before he made his wish. She is revealed to be one of the wizard's servants and Clay's girlfriend.
Duskon: A wizard in Dragon Land who accepts Max's request to be Emmy's age 7 years later. Max does not listen to the effects of the wish 100% though. Max (as Clay) finds him as a 100-year man who followed him through time and tells him about what happened when he went through time to become Clay Acarius. He is deceased in the end of the story with Clay and Ace serving him.
Travis, Randy, and Harold: The bullies of Max. They harass him when he is only 6 years old. But when he is Clay, they are stopped multiple times, to the point that they stop for good.
That's all the MAJOR characters in this story. Teachers are in this story, but are not as important in this story. Let's begin!
Max and Emmy's House
Max is sleeping one morning when his alarm clock rings.
He turns it off and wakes up.
"So, another day of 1st Grade is about to begin. I hope it's better than yesterday.", said Max.
Max began to remember the times he was bullied.
Max was playing out on the playground when he saw 3 bullies walk towards him.
"Hey short-face! You can't be as tall as us!", said Randy, one of the bullies.
"Yeah, and you can't be as old as us either!", said Harold, another bully.
Max began to feel sad.
"Stop doing this?", he said, weeping.
"Not until you are tall enough!", said Harold.
"Yeah, and old enough!", said Randy.
"I can do this!", said Max.
"No you can't!", said Travis, the leader of the bullies.
The three of them laughed until Emmy came by.
"Stop it you three!", she said.
The bullies ran away.
Emmy walked up to Max.
"Are you alright Max?", she asked him.
"Yeah, since you came.", said Max.
"As long as I'm here, those bullies will not make you sad.", said Emmy.
Max was out in the playground again when he saw the bullies walk up to him.
Max started to run, but the bullies caught him and threw him onto the ground.
"Slow down, shorty!", said the bullies.
Enrique saw the bullies and walked up to them.
"Stop this! Leave him alone!", he said.
The bullies ran away.
"Are you alright Max?", Enrique asked.
"Yeah.", said Max.
"Me and Emmy will protect you from those bullies.", said Enrique.
Max was eating his lunch when the bullies walked over and pushed his face into the food.
"Shorty-face! Shorty-face! You can't be big as us!" said all 3 bullies.
Emmy and Enrique saw what happened and walked up to the bullies.
"STOP IT!", they both shouted at them.
The bullies ran off.
Emmy and Enrique went up to Max.
"Are you OK?", they asked him.
"Yeah.", said Max.
"I just hope those bullies don't push me around!", Max thought.
Max went downstairs to get his breakfast for the morning.
When Max saw his parents, his breakfast was ready to be fed to him.
"Thanks Mom.", said Max.
"You're welcome Max.", said his mother.
As his family ate breakfast, Max realized that he was also having problems about being too small and young for rides at amusement parks.
He starts to remember them.
Max and his family were at an amusement park.
Max wanted to ride on the roller coasters.
He ran to the line, but was sad to see what he saw.
He was too short to ride the roller coaster.
Max tried at other roller coasters, but he could only ride the ones for his age.
His parents tried to help him, but Max ran off crying.
Max was at a center for fun.
He saw many fun games and wanted to try them out.
They were rock climbing, laser tag, and fun indoor rides.
But each ride had an age requirement Max could not do.
Max ran off crying again.
"Max, I hope those bullies stop pushing you around today.", said his father.
Max felt much better.
At School That Day
Max was playing Basketball with his friends when he saw the bullies again.
Max tried to ignore him, but they ran up to him and threw him into the hoop.
"Get down, shorty-face!", said Travis.
"Yeah, and shrink down to a baby age!", said Harold.
"Or maybe you can be there until you are big enough!", said Randy.
The bullies laughed and Max was sad.
Max realized that he would be bullied everyday of school.
He started to get mad.
"Oh yeah? Then try and grow up yourself!", said Max, angrily.
Emmy and Enrique noticed him getting mad and ran towards him.
The bullies banged the hoop until Max fell out.
"What, are you going to call me small and young?", Max asked them.
They picked him up, but Max started punching Travis, kicking Harold, and slapping Randy.
"Max!", said Emmy.
The three bullies threw Max down hard, but Max still attacked them.
Teachers came to the group.
Emmy and Enrique ran up and got Max.
"Max, are you alright?", Emmy asked him.
"Yeah, but when we get home, we need to talk.", said Max.
"About what?", Enrique asked.
"What I must do with those bullies.", said Max.
Travis, Harold, and Randy were taken to the principal's office for bullying Max.
Max was taken to the nurse later on.
The Playroom That Afternoon
Max, Emmy, and Enrique were in the Playroom, awaiting Max's plan.
"Max, what could you possibly want now?", Enrique asked.
"I want to be bigger and older so that I could show those bullies I can grow up.", said Max.
"But why? When you are bigger, you might not be able to do things you did in Dragon Land that helped us.", said Emmy.
"It's for those bullies. I call it my surprise to them!", said Max.
"But why do that when you could just tell someone about it?", Emmy asked.
"I need to take care of them and show them not to push me around.", said Max.
Emmy and Enrique started to look concerned.
Throughout the Next Few Days
Throughout the next few days, the bullies harassed Max, but each time he was harassed, he fought back with his fists and feet.
Each time, Emmy and Enrique saw his anger and took him to safety.
But then, after one day, Max screamed out loud "THAT'S IT! I NEED HELP FROM MY FRIENDS!".
Emmy and Enrique knew whom he was talking about.
Max, Emmy, and Enrique decided to go to Dragon Land and help Max with his problem with the bullies.
So they said the rhyme and went to Dragon Land.
Ord, a blue dragon, Cassie, a pink dragon, and Zak and Wheezie, a two-headed dragon (Zak is green and Wheezie is purple), were playing Dragon Disk when Max, Emmy, and Enrique appeared.
"Max! Emmy! Enrique!", said Ord as he ran up to them and hugged them.
After hugging them, they saw Max's smile.
"You seem happy Max. Why?", Zak asked him.
"I'm wanting to wish to be bigger and older.", said Max.
"Why? I don't think anyone can do that.", said Cassie.
"I have bullies I need to take care of right now!", said Max.
They all gasped.
"Maybe we should see Quetzal.", said Cassie.
"LOOOOOOOOVVVVVVEEE IIIIIIITTTTTTTTT!", said Wheezie.
So they flew to The School in The Sky.
The School in The Sky
When they arrived at The School in The Sky, Quetzal saw them from the window.
He went outside to see why they were here to see him.
"Ola, ninos! Why have you come?", said Quetzal.
"Max wants to make his wish to be bigger and older because bullies harass him for his size and age.", said Emmy.
"I'm afraid I can't do that. But come inside. There is a way to do that." said Quetzal.
So the gang went inside.
Inside the School in The Sky
The gang sat down as Quetzal got his book.
He looked for the page and found Max's answer.
"Ah yes, a wizard that is a human exists. He can grant your wishes but they have some downsides to them. So be careful.", said Quetzal.
"Where is he Quetzal?", Max asked.
"In the Stickleback Mountains.", said Quetzal.
Max ran out saying, "Get ready bullies! Prepare to be shown that I can grow up!", said Max.
"Wait Max!", said Quetzal.
The gang followed Max.
"Oh no. I think they did not realize the danger Max is about to enter.", Quetzal thought.
Outside the School in The Sky
Max ran outside and stopped to wait for Ord so that he could go to the wizard.
"Let's go find that wizard!", said Max.
Ord flew, knowing that Max could be in danger.
The rest of the gang followed him.
Max saw a cave after a few minutes of flying in the mountains.
"There's the cave!", said Max.
Ord descended, as well as the rest of the gang.
"What is in that cave?", Emmy asked.
"I don't know. But we will find out soon enough.", said Enrique.
Even though some were scared, the gang went inside the cave.
When they got to the end of the cave, they saw a wizard with a stick.
"Hello humans and dragons. I am Duskon. I know why you have come. I have sensed the reason.
"What is it?", they all asked.
"Max, you wanted to be bigger and older to show some of the bullies you have what for.", said Duskon.
"Yes. I wish that I was Emmy's age 7 years later.", said Max.
"I can grant that wish, but there might be…", said Duskon before he saw Max run up to him.
"I need to do this now!", said Max.
He shook Duskon's stick and his wish was granted.
But however, he was still what he is now, but asleep.
"MAX!", the gang screamed as they saw Max fall asleep.
When they saw him, they were sad.
"Do not worry. Max was just cocky to get his dreams.", said Duskon.
"I think that was serious.", said Enrique.
"But now you must wait 7 years to have him fulfill his wish.", said Duskon.
"What about you?", Emmy asked.
"I will follow him through time and when he finds out, I will see him and speak with him about the situation.", said Duskon.
So Duskon went through time to find Max.
"Max, I hope you are alright.", said Emmy.
Max's House 7 Years Later
Max's family mourned after they found out he "committed suicide" because of the bullies at school.
They remember him by not changing his room.
However, magically, someone was under the covers in the room.
Apparently, the person in the bed was actually Max himself!
The alarm clock began to ring at 5:00.
Max pushed the sleep button.
"Those bullies better be ready because now that I'm bigger and older, I can show those bullies what for!", he said in a different voice.
Max got out of bed, but he noticed that his "pajamas" were a lot different now than they were when he was 6.
His Pajamas were now a light blue T-Shirt and white shorts.
"I guess these Pajamas are fine, I guess.", said Max.
He then saw that his bed was smaller than his size.
"Something is going on here!", said Max.
He decided to look at himself at a mirror, but he saw a calendar first.
It said that the date was 7 years after he made his wish.
The date was 8/20/08 instead of what Max intended (which was supposed to be 11/05/01) (yes, this is supposed to take place when Dragon Tales was still on TV, but when Enrique was with Max and Emmy).
"I really need to see myself! It's 7 years later than what I wanted it to be!", said Max.
He ran into the bathroom, where he saw himself in the mirror.
Max was in shock to see his reflection.
END OF CHAPTER 1
Chapter 2: Introductions at High School
Description: After Max sees himself, he freaks out as he was transformed into a form he had not expected to be (he looks like Clay from Mario Tennis: Power Tour indeed). His scream wakes up his sister, now 15 years old. Max hides in his bed in his room. Emmy walks into his room and notices him under the covers. Max had to introduce himself, but for an unknown reason, he said his name, but it was odd. Instead of his name, he said "Clay Acarius". His parents, who see him as Clay Acarius, adopt him and register him to Nexus Academy High School as a new 9th Grader, where Emmy would be going to school in September. Can Max, now as Clay Acarius, survive his first day of high school even though he has not even finished Elementary School or started Middle School?
