Beyond seven mountains, beyond seven rivers... there is a faraway land called, Pastel Madness. The local people living there believe in a very strange legend. Some of them claim that every 8 years a very special event occurs on one of the nearby hills. They say that during that special time you can ask for one thing, and one thing only, that shall be granted to you. It only works for one person so you have to be the first with your wish. It starts like every other sunset but it certainly is not. You can notice it quite easily with its unique delicate pastel-coloured sky. Now the fun part begins... After a short while of standing on the correct hill; oh yes my dear... you have to be lucky enough to stand on the correct hill during that phenomenon as well, you should notice strange winds accosting your body from every possible direction. What is so unique about them, you may ask... Well, what if I told you the winds have the most delicious scents you can possibly imagine, and they change every few seconds too. After the winds, the most interesting part comes along. The air around you supposed to get thicker and thicker. Soon enough, every pastel colour you can see around yourself turns into cotton wool. Different colour, different flavour. All within your arm's reach, you don't even have to move to get it, you just grab it straight from the sky. Once you eat enough, the time should stop for 8 seconds; that is the moment when you should shout your wish out. It sound ridiculous, I know... Yet, there are people who believe it so blindly that they are going to sacrifice their lives just to get a chance to make their wish... I've heard some crazy stories about people living on the hills, families moving to nearby towns and villages from across the world just to be closer to this allegedly special place, and many many more... I look at the sky, and it indeed look like it's got this very magical pastel vibe to it... Sure, there was lots of wind going on too, but I didn't smell anything nice, hmm... Did I get down too quickly? Maybe I was on the wrong hill? Damn it~!! Why do I even bother!? It doesn't matter. It is just a story for kids. But the sky... there's something about it...
