Introduction

Luxuries (By Eloise Lau) She stared out of the window looking at the murky grey sky. It was the colour of dishwater. Urgh, she thought to herself. She closed the curtains with the universal remote and laid on the recliner, looking at the intricate patterns of the ceiling. The interior designer had sworn that ceilings with swirly patterns were the new 'IT' thing. Surveying her purchase now, she was not so sure. It rained relentlessly outside, showing no mercy to the tin roofs that sheltered the lonely mansion. "I must have the walls soundproofed," she thought to herself, "The noise is giving me a frightful headache." She walked around the room abysmally, and then she decided to wait for her husband to return home in the parlour. Harold Bayer was the richest twenty-five year old man in the world, and his young wife was sick of it. She could not go out of the house unaccompanied, and her husband's job as the CEO in the world's fastest growing shareholder company, MME kept him busy every week. ...read more.

She looked up, eyes red from crying. It was Mr Reilly, the butler. "This is for you, madam" he said. In his white glove, he held a jewellery box and a letter. The letter ran as thus: My darling, I am so sorry that I haven't been home for the last couple of weeks. Business has taken me further from home than I expected. I was sent to the Middle East and the desert storms delayed my flight back home. While there, I found this for you, open it, I'm sure you'll love it. Love, Harold. The letter piqued her imagination.

"And that is not a wish!" she said as an after note to the jinn, "I'm taking a cab." She called up a limousine and hopped onto it. The driver took her straight back home. Her excitement kept growing along the way. Now he'll know how I feel, she thought. The driver dropped her off on the sidewalk so that she would not be heard. "Keep the change," she said. To her horror, she saw her husband's arms wrapped around another woman in a passionate embrace. Crying tears of shame, she fled the scene and hid again in the closet. "I WISH EVERYTHING WAS THE WAY IT WAS!" she screamed on the top of her lungs, trying to scream the pain away. The jinn appeared and granted her wish. The closet door creaked open. "Darling?" he said. Harold wrapped his arms around her. "I'm sorry," he said. She then realised that there was nothing more valuable than the luxuries of being loved. ...read more.
