Akari peeked her head inside the ruby red circus tent. It was dimly lit by a single wax candle. She saw a middle aged woman dressed in a red gown with a shawl and bandana. Her eyes fixed upon the crystal ball. They looked old and wise, filled with purple. She pulled herself into a regular sitting position and shook her head. "This just can't be!" she hollered, and slammed her fist onto the table. She turned to the tent opening, and saw her. "Come in dearie, let me tell your fortune," said in a calm, exotic voice.
"I want to know about my future Valentine's Day," Akari said.
"Well, come on, come on. You need you to sit first!" she said. Akari sat with haste and cupped her hands together. "You'll find your one true love, marry him someday, and soon have a happy family!" she said with glee.
"REALLY? Oh! WOW!" Akari yelled and jumped up and down inside the tent.
"BUT! You must wear this," she said. She headed for a shelf and took out and old box. She rubbed off the dust with her shawl and blew lightly against the top. "Make sure he sees you with it, or else our future with meet its downfall!" she cried and gave her the box.
"You can tell it's him, when he talks to you. He'll say three simple words, 'I love you'."
Akari thanked the old woman and gave her a large sum of yen. She left for home, jumping with joy. She put on her new necklace. It had sparking sapphries, emeralds, and diamonds, but nothing could match the centerpiece. In the center was a large ruby shaped like a heart. She finally reached home to find no one there. She put her new necklace into the drawer and went to sleep.
The next day..........
Akari woke up and placed on her necklace. She dressed her best and headed for Sakura High, her high school. When she stepped into the school yard, everyone gasped. A crowd of boys ran up to her and kneeled. "Please!" one shouted.
"Be mine!" said another.
"You should get the best, and the best is me!" hollered a third.
"Boys, boys, please! I need to get to class!" she said, and with that, the bell rung.
The whole day, boys around school chased her. Yet, not one seemed to say, "I love you." Finally, at the end of school, she made it to the school bus alone. "Phew! I am quite dissapointed though," she said, sorrowfully. She began to cry.
"Why are you crying?" says a mysterious voice.
"I didn't find my true love!" she replied. He gently touched her face and said, "I love you."
With that, she replied, "Me too."
A picture may be a thousand words, but what about a movie?
