"I panic as I watch the vase shatter on the ground in front of me. It couldn't be! I need that vase!
And he of all people knows this.
I sink to the ground and stare at the shards as I hear his footsteps coming ever closer. I flinch and squeeze my eyes shut waiting for the wave of pain that would consume my body surely. When that didn't happen and there continued to be silence I open my eyes and notice what I hadn't before. A glimmering stone in the remains of the vase.
"I wonder what that could be?" he asks me, talking to me as though everything was normal. I let out a whimper, knowing he knew it was there too, and I look up into his eyes, those big brown eyes.
I know what is going to happen next."
