21. The Pearl

Cara emerged from the stairs just behind the gatekeeper. She jumped back into the lake and swum under water back to the gatekeeper. That way he wouldn't be suspicious when she returned dry and behind him.

"I've got it," Cara called coming out of the water holding the pearl. Cara walked to the gatekeeper and held up the pearl to the light.

"Excellent," the gatekeeper said smiling at Cara, "Can I have it?" The gatekeeper reached out to where Cara held the pearl.

"Yeah sure," Cara said handing him the pearl, "Now can I have what I came for?"

"Oh yes of cause," the gatekeeper said vaguely, "But first...."

"NO!" Cara said cutting the gatekeeper off mid sentence, "No more errands I want what I came for. And I want it NOW!" Cara stood there fuming as the gatekeeper sat astonished at what Cara had said.

"Excuse me," the gatekeeper said frowning, "That is no way to talk to your elders."

"I don't care anymore," Cara said still fuming, "Just give me what I came here for and I will leave."

"Wow you have a temper on you don't you?" the gatekeeper said smiling, "Well let me first..."

"JUST GIVE IT TO ME!!" Cara yelled angrily holding out her hand expectantly.

"Ok.. ok here," the gatekeeper said thrusting a small comb into Cara's hand.

"Is that it?" Cara asked surprised.

"Yup," the gatekeeper said turning away.

"I came all the way here and dived into a lake for a comb," Cara said astonished.

"Yes it was kind of silly," the gatekeeper said laughing.

"Well never mind," Cara said, "I can see my family now, bye."

"Goodbye Cara," The gatekeeper said as Cara turned and started her journey back to the other gatekeeper.
