I had never seen it used as a weapon before, but when he tried to attack me with a stick, I couldn’t help but laugh. I wasn’t going to let him take the treasure from me—I needed it to save a life.

Then the tip of the stick began to glow a brilliant bright blue and my eyes widen in shock and I just managed to duck. I heard a loud crash and turned to see a large crater on the wall.

“What the fuck?”

“Give me the diamond or I’ll kill you.” The man demanded.  I clutched the diamond in my hand even tighter. I only had twenty-four hours to get it to the loan sharks or my father would be dead.

I spotted something, and I grabbed a chair threw it at him and ran for it.  I saw another beam of light and I ducked again.  I sprinted even harder, my long hair whipping around me like a cape as I darted out of the house and onto the street.
