The Compass


No talisman or lucky charm as I had first thought it to be. The golden edging had a tiny little catch, which, totally unintentionally I press my hand against. That aqua orb springs apart, to reveal its inner self.

A compass! But it’s not like any I have seen before. The arrow is there, but there is no North, South, East or West marked on it at all. Instead there are strange markings, symbols of some kind that I have never seen before.

There is something magical about them, mystical. The needle begins to spin faster and faster, becoming a blur of movement before it gradually starts to slow once more. It comes to rest against one of the symbols but I cannot make out any details. A bright spark, like a miniature flash of lightning travels between the top and the bottom of the orb and I have a very strong feeling that I am about to be moved again.
