Story Chain

This is a Story Chain created by Deanna. Go to her page to follow the whole story or none of this will make any sense. (Actually, I'm not sure that any of this does make any sense either way)

Meghan's story before me....

The title read, Wish Granter and her seven year old mind was smitten. She could think of millions of wishes that she wanted granted, the first of which was spending money, so she opened it. And that’s when she first saw him.
He jumped out of the pages the moment she whispered the first gibberish line of the book.
“Sumi Toggle, Moomy Boogle.”
He was tall and looked completely solid. Even a seven year old could tell he was very good looking--black hair, brown eyes, strong. If she was to guess his age, he was old, maybe thirty. And knowing nearly nothing about other dimensions, she was sure he was a zombie…or a vampire. Because who just jumps out of books?

Now, though, she knows he is a Space Leaper, at least that is what Roddern calls himself, and really isn't much older than her sixteen year old self, though the Grandoolex age much slower. 

Space Leapers are tied to objects in the other dimensions, and Dio's object just happened to be the Wish Granter book. Sneaky Grandoolexians. Roddern wasn't technically a wish granter but he had powers to make amazing things happen.

“Looky, looky! It’s my-o Dio,” he said that fateful pickle morning.
“I’m not yours,” Dio said, “I have come with a wish.”
“Don’t you always?” Roddern said brushing aside his thick hair, “What erratic desire can I help you with today?”
“Don’t talk to me like that! My wishes are usually well thought out.”
“Alright, what is it that you want, Dio.”
“I’m thinking about changing my name.”
“Come on, just do it.”
“To what?”
“Ummmm, I hadn’t thought that far. Any suggestions?”
His eyes twinkled when he laughed. “Something from my world or yours?”
