Wishes

They said you could order anything online. My neighbour asked for a dog off MyGenie.com. The next day a labrador waited outside. My parents wanted a place to retire. The keys arrived the following morning. My friend asked for a car, and a shiny VolksWagen appeared in her drive. The site was what it claimed to be: magic. I figured I could do better. If this site granted wishes, I would ask for something worthwhile. I logged in and made my request: World Peace.

The next morning, I opened my door to silence. Everyone was gone. The world was empty.

Challenge: The piece must be exactly 100 words.
