I don't know...

Come on, what would you choose?

To be invisible.

If you could choose two?

To be intangible,

so nobody could touch me.

But that would be like not existing,

wouldn't be?

A bit, yes.

- Do you know which one I would pick?

- Which one?

To be able to become whoever I wanted.

I had thought of becoming the king

and give a speech like...

"Dear Spaniards, I feel proud that

you kill the rest of Spaniards."

- Alicia, don't swear.

- I haven't.

I don't like you to speak improperly.

Can I ask you another thing?

Of course, my dear.

I'd like to have a gin-tonic.

I think there's gin left.

I don't know about tonic.

- What's your nickname?

- Yukiko.

Yukiko. It's beautiful.

"Book of desires"

"Wish 1:
to become whoever I want"

"Wish 2:
Magical Girl Yukiko's dress

designed by Meiko Saori for singer Megumi"

Yukikio.

"Wish 3:
to turn 13"

I'm leaving darling.

See you in the afternoon.

- Wait.

- What's up?

- Just wait.

- What's up?

The lady will tell me

whenever she wants.

See you later, honey.

- Dad

- Tell me.

You forget your cell phone.

One day I'll lose my head.

See you later, precious.

Today, in the letters' section we have

a very special letter.

And I say it's a very special letter

because it's written by a 12-year-old girl.

Because she dedicates it to her father,

and because she has leukemia.

She's Alicia,

and her letter goes like this...

Good morning.

- Hello.

- Hello... Luis! Long time no see!

How are you, doll?

Ramon was here this morning and

we were precisely talking about you.

I haven't seen him for ages.

His bar was closed, did you know that?

I don't know where this is going.

I didn't know. What a bummer!

If someone had told me this three years ago,

even one year ago, I wouldn't have believed it.
