Sarah Lake knew she had a limited amount of time before he caught her. There she was, running along a river bank chased by her uncle, but, fortunately, she had still managed to take the necklace before she got caught.
Ah, the necklace. What would normally be a woman's jewelry piece had started the war between the members of her family for as long as anybody could remember. She didn't think anybody knew what it really did, only that it was important. Except for her. She knew that the tiny ruby in the center of the emerald on the pendant of the necklace was the key to a large safe... a large safe on the summit of Everest. Most people in her family would look at the necklace and think the most valuable gem on it, the emerald, was what held the secret. But Sarah knew better. She knew that it was actually something you could barely see without a magnifying glass. That was, in fact, the reason why she was being chased right now.
Risking a quick glance over her shoulder, she could see her uncle hot on her heels. It was only going to be seconds before she was caught. She threw a glance at the necklace, which was secure in the pocket of her sweater. She had to get rid of it.
Maybe...
She didn't have time to think, because at that moment a large hand collapsed on the back of her neck. The sudden stop from her frantic running made her lose her ballence, nearly toppling over into the river. Her uncle grunted, and tried to grab the necklace from her pocket, but quickly she grabbed it and, without a second thought, threw it into the river. And this river was 7 yards deep. Because the necklace was heavy stone it probably had already sunken to the bottom. None the less, Her uncle dove in after it, while Sarah just stared at the spot where it had landed. She knew that soon there would be Scuba Divers and Submarines searching for the necklace, but the jewelry be useless. For there, in her hand, was the tiny ruby.
