Mikael returns home for a rare visit to participate in Sacred Hearts Primary School's celebration concert! Candy JEM will be performing too, but Joni has completely forgotten her singing skills, so she must relearn everything from scratch. However, her poor time management causes her to neglect her schoolwork as well as her singing lessons! Can Joni learn how to manage her time more wisely to keep things from getting worse?



Time Waits for No One

In their homes, Joni, Emilia and Mia texted to each other to plan their meeting for the following day, and agreed to meet at a park during the afternoon.

The next day, Emilia and Mia woke up early in the morning and did their morning routines while Joni was still asleep in bed before being called up by her mother. Soon after, Emilia and Mia proceed to their meeting point in the park while Joni, who had lost track of time, was playing video games with her brother Julian.

Engrossed in the game, Joni could not remember her meeting with her friends before receiving Julian's reminder. The latter then quickly planed her preparations before going to meet her friends, thus delaying more time in the process.

Somewhere in the park, Mia was worried about her friend's lateness and wondered if she is fine. After Joni's arrival, the two reprimanded her for being late. And the latter also received a lecture from Emilia; Emilia told Joni about being late is considered rude. With utter confusion to Emilia's words, Emilia got fumed and attacked Joni. Before Mia informed them about fetching a certain friend.

Meanwhile, at the airport, Mikael, who just came back from Prague, had lost his patience and vowed to punish Joni for her late arrival.


  • Joni's clothes in the front cover book seems to be the same to the white rabbit named Nivens McTwisp from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
