RACHEL PUT HER hand on David's mouth.
David turned his body back to his original position, embarrassed, and said, "I, I'm sorry."
"I was just an impulse when I looked at your beautiful face. I, I just lost my control. I'm so sorry about that."
"Hey, no worries, it's okay." Rachel looked at David for a while, and said, "I didn't let you kiss me not because I don't find you attractive or I don't like you. It's only because I never kissed anyone in my life."
"Oh..oh..I didn't know, sorry."
"It's okay. You know, I..uh…I am not a prude, I've just left my hometown, and…"
"Hey, don't worry. I understand."
"Okay…okay." Rachel smiled and blushed. "So, what did you want to say?"
"Ah, I see. It said that there is a diamond called The Diamond of Fate, which has a special power."
"What sort of special power?"
"It's a kind of power that would let the owner regain his or her magical as long as the owner wasn't a human who had left his or her own territory."
"Yeah, really. It said that it is the sister stone of The Hope Diamond. But most people just know The Hope Diamond, and very few people know about The Diamond of Fate."
"The Hope Diamond?"
"Yeah. It is a notorious diamond. The masters who had owned it would meet with deadly disasters. You can search on the internet about it if you want to know more."
"Got it. So, what about the present owner?"
"It belongs to Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History now, and since they have had it, everything seems fine. Nobody has died a miserable death."
"I see. What about The Diamond of Fate? Where is it?"
"It is said that it was bought by a Chinese curio dealer. And coincidentally, he actually lives in this town."
"Seriously! I have met him once when I visited here last time. We had a great conversation. We discussed the stuff about this diamond."
"Wow, great. Could you take me to see this person?"
"Sure, he is a nice man, very kind."
"Shall we go now?"
David took a look at his watch and said, "It's not late, okay, let's go."
