Eri walked home humming to herself. 'I wonder if mom is home?' She thought as she let herself in the front door. The house sounded empty, she glanced down at her watch, 1:00 am. 'What do I do now?' She wondered.
She walked to her room and changed into her favorite sweat pants and an old t-shirt. She glanced outside and noticed that it had started to rain. She went to the kitchen and popped a bag of popcorn. While it was popping she tied her hair back. 'Oh yeah, I look cool now!' She laughed to herself.
She got a big bowl and poured the popcorn into it, when the microwave dinged. She grabbed a bottle a soda, and juggled the two as she grabbed a few more candy goodies. She managed to get back to her room with out dropping anything, then she plopped now on her bed and turned on the television. She found a half-way interesting movie that she use to watch with her friends all the time.
A bag of popcorn, two twinkes, and three bottles of soda later the movie was over, and she was still not sleepy. She thought about the evening she had just had, then remembered the funny glass thing that she had found. She climbed out from under the blankets she had cocooned herself under, and pulled it out of the jacket pocket she had put it in.
It was about as long as the space between her knuckles, an about as wide as the side of an American dime. It was a shade of pink and she knew that it belonged to something bigger. As she held it in her hand, again, she felt the power of the shard run through her.
'I wish I had someone to show this to.' She thought, 'I don't really have any friends other then them. I wonder what it is? I guess I could make it into a necklace, yeah that could be fun! I can show it off at school tomarrow...'
Eri pulled out one of the jewelery kits that she had loved when she was a kid. She spent about two hours picking out beads and things to put around it. She was going to smooth the stone down, but something told her this was a bad idea.
She held up the finished product, and smiled at the fruit of her labor. It actually did look pretty good! She tied it around her neck, and crawled into bed for the few hours of sleep she could still get.
