Plot synopsis[edit]

Kirby draws an apple under the tree with a view of Dream Land. Meanwhile, Meta Knight spends his alone time by flying over a stormy sea. On the other hand, Kirby likes to sing loudly, so much that the caves where he sings can collapse, while Meta Knight enjoys reading in a quiet spot and can spend hours absorbed in a book. Later, as the hungry Kirby runs around with his drawing, it starts raining, so he seeks shelter under a large tree and wishes his drawing became a real apple. Meta Knight, who had been sitting by a campfire, is also caught by the rain, and he settles on the other side of the same tree. Just then, he realizes his sword is missing, and decides to search for it when the rain ends. At that time, Kirby ventures on in search for food. He decides to wait for the clouds to clear out, and falls asleep watching the sky while leaned against said sword. When he wakes up, he finds a pile of real apples instead of his drawing. He's delighted that his drawing came to life and digs in. He then dashes off to enjoy some more alone time. At the same time, Meta Knight walks away, his sword and the drawing in hand. The reader is encouraged to spend some alone time to find a new side to one's self.
