Teenager Belinda Monk (15) has trouble believing her luck as the year 9 student has finally won the heart of her long time crush after successfully making a wish with a magical chain email she sent to 15 friends within 30 seconds of reading.
Perusing her email inbox, Monk found an email titled “Re:re:re:Re: – Important!~|~” and upon opening it discovered it was a famed ‘wish email’ that she had been so longingly waiting for.
“I couldn’t believe my luck,” stated Monk
“Right away I sent it off to 15 people, closed my eyes and made a wish. I’m not an idiot.”
Immediately following the forwarding of the emails, Monk became aware of a knocking at her door and upon answering it discovered her crush was standing there professing his love for her.
It is believed Monk has had a crush on now boyfriend Todd Henson (15) since year 7 but only last night did Henson make his intentions clear with Monk despite his only interaction with her being the time he accidently hit her with a chucked rubber that was meant for the person next to her.
“I just love her now,” stated Henson under the powerful spell of a chain email.
“That’s how it is.”
Monk was so ecstatic that she later added a paragraph to the chain wish email detailing her story so that all the readers would be inspired to do the same.
“I didn’t think it would happen to me, but after I sent it to 15 people WITHIN 30 SECONDS my wish came true and my crush knocked at my front door with a bottle of Coke and a packet of salt and vinegar chips.”
The interview was cut short when Monk had to quickly forward an email to her entire address book, as well as herself, in order to avoid being strangled by the restless ghost of a murdered child with access to a computer.
