Moving into Death

Rylee, a lonely 10 year old girl finds an interesting looking gemstone while exploring in the garden of her new home. She soon becomes captivated by it and, oblivious to its actual power as a magic crystal, takes it home. After a while, when she notices some weird goings-on around the house, valuables going missing, people getting hurt etc she becomes apprehensive. She tries to tell her parents to no avail. Will she be able to convince them of the crystal's true powers before it's too late for them all?


9. Explanations

I was astounded. I couldn't believe she would do that.

"What the hell? What did you do that for?" I shouted, as I ran over and started hitting her, "Crystal is my only friend! And you drowned her! Why?"

Haylee just held my arms by my sides, she was surprisingly strong for her small stature. I tried to wriggle free but I just couldn't. She calmly responded,

"I know what that crystal is, and believe me, you don't want to make friends with it. You're better off a million miles away from it. Trust me, it's for the best."

"How do you know what it is?" I asked sceptically, "And Crystal is really nice." I finally managed to wriggle free and was going to start hitting her again until she told me that she took Karate lessons. I just stood still. She responded coolly,

"I'm very interested in things like this, I read books about it. And in one of the books, I saw that crystal and a paragraph saying that it's very dangerous. I didn't believe it at first but then I found it right here on the ground. I took it home, forgetting all about the warnings. I seemed to get lost in it's beauty. It spoke to me. About a week after I took it home, weird things started happening."

"What kind of weird things?" I asked anxiously

"Exactly what's been happening to you," she said, her voice full of concern, "First, my Dad's favourite chain went missing, then we lost my Mam's wedding ring. But that's nothing, one time, I took a friend home from school and she saw the crystal and started messing with it, like throwing it up in the air and all. I tried to stop her but she wouldn't listen and when she was going home, she slipped on a toy on the landing and fell down the stairs, broke her leg. That, Rylee, is why I threw it in the lake." 

"Oh my god!" I exclaimed. "But wait. How did you know it would be here? And how do you know it was Crystal who did all that stuff?" 

"I knew it would be here because this is where it always comes. After my friend broke her leg, I thrwew the crystal in the bin, thinking that I would never see it again. But then I was going for a walk down here one evening and I noticed it right here. So then, I took it on holiday to Spain with me and threw it in the bin over there and again, I noticed it right here, along with Dad's chain and Mam's ring. And the reason I know it was the crystal that did all that stuff is because after I noticed it here, I never brought it home again, and we never had any problems since then. So Rylee, If you ever see that Crystal again, don't touch it."

I decided that she knew what she was talking about and we just walked back to the house and talked until she had to go home.
