Of Diamonds and Quartzes
Two teams. Two worlds. One similarity, Imperfection.
"Connie, my greatest achievement, I want you to retrieve my fellow acquaintances for me darling." My mother and creator, Yellow Diamond asked of me and I nodded with determination.
"Yes Ma'am!" I said and she smiled while pressing a button on her control panel. A microphone raised up and she bent over to speak into it.
"Pearl, send me in a Jasper, a Peridot, and that traitor Lapis we found." Yellow Diamond said into her microphone and the microphone cut off.
"May I ask a question or two my Diamond?" I asked, holding my breath, and she looked at me with what seemed to be compassion.
"Of course my darling." She replied and I released my held breath in relief.
"To where am I going? And why must other gems accompany me?" I questioned and she smiled widely, almost sinisterly.
"Why Connie, those gems are your team. And you're going to Earth." She answered and I gasp quietly. Earth.
