Corey had just gotten home from school and went straight to his room to relax. However, as soon as he got there, somebody knocked on the door.
"Dave!", Corey yelled. "Could you get that?"
"Sure.", Dave answered annoyed.
Two minutes later, everything changed. Dave never existed and reality was changing. Corey, his parents, and anyone whoever met Dave forgot about him. Corey was an only child. Dave's room was transformed into a guest room and any of his toys that were laying around vanished. The world had changed, yet nothing was wrong. But then Nick said those key words:
"The guy who lives here, Corey Dennis, thinks you're his brother Dave. For some reason."
Then, Corey remembered. He remembered his little ten years-old brother and knew something was wrong. He had memories of the old and current reality, so he knew something had changed. He dashed out of his room and out the door to find his brother, whoever he may be now. Down the street, he saw his rival Nick with a little Asian girl around ten. Moments later, there was an attractive girl around his own age with Nick. The context of Nick's phrasing allowed Corey to recognize the girl. Dave. He picked up speed after coming to this realization but could not make it before the two shared a passionate kiss.
"WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO MY BROTHER?!", Corey roared at Nick.
"Nicky, what is he talking about?", Asami asked Nick. "Who is this guy?" Corey was horrified. His ten years-old brother had become this stunning Asian girlfriend to his worst enemy and didn't even remember him.
"Y-you don't remember me?", Corey was barely able to to ask.
"No. Should I?"
"Asami, please head home without me.", Nick suggested. "This is that crazy guy I talked about before. Thinks he's your brother."
"But I don't even have siblings. I still don't see why he would think such outlandish things."
"Neither do I, but all that matters is that you're home safe and the bracelet is with me." With that, Asami disappeared and the bracelet appeared in Nick's hand.
"Wh-where is sh-HE?!", Corey spazzed out.
"Didn't you hear me? She's at home, safe from people like you."
"PEOPLE LIKE ME?! What THE HELL is going on?!"
"Here," Nick threw the bracelet to Corey. "I'll show you. You already know what the bracelet has done." Corey's mind was bombarded with the events that had occurred because of the bracelet. From his brother assimilated into another family to him being forced to be his greatest enemy's belle, he saw it all in vivid detail. And he was angry.
"You!", Corey started to stomp over to Nick. "You are going to fix everything. Right. NOW."
"Well, I've had my fun. Tell me Corey, why are you angry at me?"
"You turned my brother into a chick! This seems like the appropriate emotion."
"Technically, they don't remember him. But fine, if you're so upset over losing him, perhaps you'd like to join her again."
"What are you talking abou-" Corey froze and stared at the bracelet in his hands. However, before he could act, Nick acted.
"You can't let go of the bracelet." Corey tried to lose his grasp on the bracelet, but he couldn't. "I think you've been in enough emotional pain for now. You don't remember ever having a brother at all. You are an only child." Corey's eyes widened as he forgot everything. Any memory he had of his brother was erased. However, he did gain quite a few new ones about Asami. Mainly having a crush on her since fifth grade and being jealous of Nick for having her. He still hated Nick but for new reasons and was less fueled by rage.
"So what?", Corey started. "Asami doesn't care about whether her boyfriend has siblings. You don't either."
"Asami may not care if one of us has siblings, but I bet she would love her own. She is caring like that. Luckily, she has you as her sibling." The bracelet glowed as Corey's genetics and history were rewritten. The combined DNA of Katsumi and Hiroshi Sato raced through his veins, changing his very being. Just as his new family, he had Japanese-Korean heritage and his face and body changed to show that. He had no romantic thoughts for Asami, as she was now his sister. His hair darkened from blonde to a dark brown. There was never a Corey Dennis, only a Isamu Sato. Isamu blinked as he recuperated.
"I know she has me as her sibling.", Isamu started with a slight accent. "That's why I'm telling you to be careful with her. If you hurt her in any way, you're going to have to answer to me."
"I don't think you understand the concept of dating. Granted, I shouldn't expect much wisdom out of a ten year-old girl." Isamu wanted to be angry by the comment, but the changes happened too quickly.
Instantly, Isamu began to change. He shrank a considerable amount of height until he was only four feet even. Next all the muscles he built as a quarterback started to shrivel and vanished after a few seconds. In the process of shrinking, all his body hair had vanished. His manhood quickly departed, leaving a brand new hole behind. In that moment the final changes from the bracelet set in: Her hair grew until it reached below her shoulders and turned dark brown. Her shirt, which was much too big at the time, transformed into a more fitting pink shirt with sparkles while her pants conformed into more fitting blue jeans. In an unforeseen side effect, small, round glasses appeared on the new girl's face, similar to how Asami needed them at that age. The changes finalized as a training bra appeared under her shirt.
Gone was Corey Dennis, the school's star quarterback and older brother to Dave Dennis. Gone was Isamu Sato, the school's star quarterback and twin brother to Asami Sato. There was now only Hanoko Sato, the middle school's first chair violin and younger sister to Asami Sato, who had been born on August 14, 2002. Hanoko was a little dizzy from these changes.
"Uh, sorry, I think I'm starting to get sick.", she said.
"I'm sure you feel okay." Hanoko instantly felt better.
"Yeah, I guess you're right. But I know more about dating than you think. I already have a date planned with Mikey Kane this Saturday at a very expensive restaurant."
"Let me guess, a steakhouse?"
"Well it's expensive by our standards!", she defended. "Besides, I'm still on the guard about you and Asami dating. She seems a little too good for you."
"Hanoko, I know you have a secret crush on me, you don't have to be so apprehensive." Hanoko blushed as her opinion on Nick changed. She know longer thought of him as a threat to her or her sister, but rather as the object of a little tween crush.
"I do not.", she said flustered. "I'm happy enough with Mikey. Why are we even walking together anyway?"
"You were going to give me Asami's bracelet back. It's a good thing you found it, I'd hate having to lose my anniversary gift to her."
"Right... Here you go." Hanoko handed Nick the bracelet. "Sure is nice..."
"Oh, look! We're already here." Nick didn't even need magic, they had finally reached the Sato residence. He peaked through his girlfriend's window and saw Asami trying on different makeup and jewelry to make this an unforgettable anniversary. Nick just grinned.
