It was the sound of the alarm. That meant I had to get up.
“Good morning, Mom…” But there was no response. I couldn’t find my mom! Where was she? She was still with me the night before.
I became so scared and nervous. I tried my best to find her but in vain. Mom was so responsible. She would not go out without leaving a message. What could I do? Suddenly, I heard a very weak sound from my mother’s room.
“Where am I? Raymond, where are you?”
“Oh my God!” S he was my mother. I was shocked. She became only 20cm tall and there was a piece of paper next to her. It wrote, “… want to save your mom, then pass my test. If you pass it, your mom will return to the normal size; if not, your mom will be like that forever.”
I had to take care of her, so I put her into a mug and brought her anywhere she wanted to go.
“Thirsty. I felt thirsty,” Mom said.
I gave her a cup of water but the normal mug was too big. I gave her a small Lego Cup. Soon, she said she felt bored, then I took her to the park, but no one could expect what happened next.
A bird suddenly caught my mom and flew up to a tree. Mom was so scared and shouted,
“Help! Help me, my son.”
I was scared, too.
I wanted to use the rock to hit it but suddenly, she dropped down. I rushed to catch her in time but she fainted and became even smaller.
I was terribly scared and my eyes were welled with tears. I didn’t have any solutions, so I could only sit in the park and do nothing.
“I am the magician. This is the test. Now you’ve passed it and I will turn your mom back to the normal size.”
My mom became normal slowly finally. I was so happy and I would treasure our relationship more. It was an unforgettable test, scary yet meaningful.
