Birthday Gift – The crystal ball and the treasure hunt

When I woke up on my birthday, I was shocked to see a strange lady sitting on my bedside table.

She had tattoos on her cheeks. They were pretty star tattoos. She had a purple face and a matching dress. She wore a lot of jewelry and makeup. Her lip color was brown and her eyeshadow was yellow. She had pink nail polish and was very thin. There was a big neatly wrapped box in her hand. She wished me a happy birthday and disappeared.

I wondered who was this lady and where did she go? Before opening the present, I thought would it be poison or some kind of dangerous thing?

As I opened the present,  I saw a crystal ball which predicted the future.

I was so excited to see if it worked. I tapped the ball and it showed that we were moving to Spain.

I was thrilled to know that we may be moving to a new country. Then I tapped the ball once more it showed that there was a map to find a treasure chest. I saw that this map is at our house in my grandmother’s closet as she was a part of a national treasure team when she was young.

I decided to find that treasure chest. I packed all my stuff and went to find the treasure in the forest.

It was difficult finding the treasure. It was night and I could see dark shadows everywhere, I was afraid of the dark but I didn’t give up. I heard many sounds and it was very cold out there too.

Then I checked the map and the treasure was nearby. I saw everywhere and I found the treasure after a lot of struggle.

There was a riddle written on the treasure chest. It was – What goes up but never comes down? I knew the answer was age so I said age loudly to the treasure chest and it opened! There were hundreds of gold coins in it. I decided to keep this crystal ball to myself.
