"The king's prized gem, the amethyst, is gone!" A guard yelled as he stared at the empty pedestal. "What?!" Another guard yelled, coming in to make sure his companion was telling the truth. In the nearby forest, a girl chuckled as she looked at the small purple gem, now attached to a chain. The silver chain was tied around her neck so the gem was kept close. "Finally... I have you now." The girl said, smiling. A sparrow flew over to the girl and chirped into her ear. She smiled, seemingly able to understand the animal and quickly jumped to the next tree. Her braided brown hair flew behind her as she jumped from tree to tree. The guards had just figured out she had stolen the king's most prized gem. She had to get to the next town before they found her. The castle was in a complete panic as the girl got away with her crime, smiling the whole while.
