Lake Paradise

A young girl finds Lake Paradise. A lake of happiness and good fortune. But.. how long will it last?


12. The Crystal Ball

The sky is starting to get dark. The bunnies are still down there. Staring out across the lake I wonder if they are anywhere near in retrieving the crystal. Moments later, George appears from the hole.

“George” I say hoping to hear some good news.

“Here we have the crystal” George says. Three bunnies come out and push a crystal in front of me. I pick it up. Encrusted in mud, I hold a small blue circular shaped crystal, it seems to have lost it’s colour over time. I wonder how long it has been down there for.

“This... is the crystal?”

“Yes, that’s the crystal”

“Okay” I was expecting something, much, much more. What am I supposed to do with it? This is supposed to mean something? I don’t get it. “What am I supposed to do?”

“I don’t know, you tell me”

“Oh great, this... this is just great” I turn the crystal in my hand hoping for something fantastic. All that waiting for a crystal ball that does nothing. I hurl the crystal ball in the lake and put my head to my hands. All that waiting... for a crystal wall.

“By jove, what’s that!” George exclaims. I look up to the lake. The lake has turned into a bright blue and starts to send off steam. It looks magnificent. It is beautiful. I peer over the edge and look at my reflection. Oh the happy waves, they make me smile so much. But what does this steam mean? This is the next thing I have to figure out.
