Random Childhood Story Time!

OR, alternatively—

"That One Time I May Have Used My Younger Sister For A Experiment."

Now when you read that title, your first thought might be one of me standing over my sister while wearing one of those laboratory coats and laughing maniacally as lightning strikes behind me for extra drama.

If that was you, then thanks for the vote of confidence, buddy.

If not...

Well, good. Because that's not what happened. :P

What did happen was in that in that strange, strange time in which we shared a room; My sis would always fall asleep before I did.

One particular night while I lay awake in bed, pondering the best ways for my (now very old) MC to completely destroy the villain... I somehow hopped onto the "magical abilities" train-of-thought. Furthermore, the ability to control someone's dream just by speaking to them while they slept.

"But hold on," My smol-self thought to my-smol-self. "Can't that be done in real life already?"

After a while, the curiosity overwhelmed me, and I stealthily climbed down from the top bunk bed to test my theory. Somehow I made it safely across the scary floor of traps n' toys to my lil' sister's bed and I gave her a slight poke to make sure she was actually asleep before I began my 'experiment'.

First, I began intense— starting off with a cyclone/nightmare scenario thing (ugh. I know... how mean of me right.). As I acted out all the parts, I watched her closely for any reaction.

"CRASH—BOOM—LIGHTNING!" *claps hands together rapidly to make up for lame sound effects*

No reaction. So I stepped it up a notch. Time to add some frightened people running for safety.

*Changes voice slightly* "AHH NO, It's a big ol' scary cyclone!!" 

*Higher pitched* "Run for your lives!! AHH!"

I glanced down at my sister's face to see the same peaceful expression. Still nothing?? Welp. Time to add myself.

"ACK— Jas! Wait for me!!" *coughs dramatically ('cos in a cyclone I kinda imangined there to be a whole lot of water)* "The cyclone is catching up, AHH!"

At this point I should probably mention that I have never in my entire life been in a cyclone... I was basically just running on my own imagination as to what it might be like.

Upon noticing that still had no effect on her, I grabbed her hand and tried again.

"AH, FLOOD! HELP!" I flopped on the ground beside her bed, wincing as one of the toys stuck into my back. Not my best idea, but being the crazy actress I was, I continued onwards, pulling her hand tightly. "DON'T LET GO JAS!!" I cried out (quietly, because I didn't want to attract the attention of Mum and Dad) in what seemed to be my best performance yet.

..And then it happened; she stirred.

My dear little sister woke up just enough to pull her hand out of my own and give me a look of utter confusion before turning over to face the wall. Instantly falling back asleep with the most innocent look on her face.


Now I'm not sure if at that stage I decided to just call it quits out of sheer failure, or because I was tired, but I did. I let out a sigh of defeat and climbed back into my own bed. Turns out that kind of stuff doesn't work after all.

Looking back, I'm really glad it didn't work. Because that would mostly imply that superpowers existed... and that I ended up with the most useless one of all. (Oh, and I probably would've freaked my sister out as well too, I guess.)


And so yeah... That's the closest I've ever come to becoming an evil scientist!

The End.

(Note: Yes, this did actually happen... While I'm not exactly proud of doing it, I couldn't help but giggle when I remembered... Still can't believe that my-smol-self thought that it might actually work. We were fairly little back then too, so I did have to exagerate on some details.)


  1. Oh my word. XD
    Why didn't I know this story??

    Seriously though, I'm so disappointed it didn't work. XP

    1. Hehe, probably because I only recalled it a couple nights ago. xD

      (And pfft, of course you would be XD *sigh* I guess superpowers can just remain fictional I guess... ;P)

  2. Huh...weird. I don't remember this...

    ..Oh wait.

  3. I. Died. Of. Laughter. (Okay, I actually didn't, but I was pretty close to. XD) This was hilarious!

    1. Yay! (Oh wait no, that's not good that you almost died XP)

  4. Gosh this is great! I have now attempted to subscribe by email because I go and look at my blogger feed once in forever. And I can't be bothered to clean it out. But this story I have never heard it!

    1. Oooh yes, I forgot about that! Feel free to let me know if it works next time I post. xD

      Hehe yeah, probably due to me only remembering recently, other wise I definitely would've told you guys about it. XD
