Now the special English program: American stories.
Our story is called “The Diamond Lens”. It was written by *.
Today we will hear the second and the final part of the story.
Here is * with part two of “Diamond Lens”.
When I was a child, someone give me a microscope. I spent hours looking through that microscope exploring nature’s tiny secrets.
As I grow up, I became more interested in my microscope than in people. When I was twenty years old, my parents sent me to New York City to study medicine. I never went to any of my classes, instead, I spent all my time and lot of my money trying to build a perfect microscope. I wanted to make a powerful lens that would let me see even the smallest parts of life. But all my experience failed.
Then, one day I met a young man who lived in the apartment above mine. John* told me about a woman who could speak to the dead. When I visited *, she let me speak to the spirit of the man who invented the microscope. The spirit of * told me how to make a perfect lens from a diamond of 140. But where could I find the diamond that big.
When I returned home, I went to the * apartment, he was surprise to see me and tried to hide a small object in his pocket. I wanted to discover what it was. So, I brought two bottles of wine to the apartment. We begun to drink, by the time we had finished the first bottle, he was very drunk.
“* I know you have a secret, why do not you tell me about it.”
Something in my voice must have made him feel safe. He made me promise to keep the secret. Then he took a small box from his pocket. When he opened it, I saw a large diamond shape like a rose, a pure white light seem to come from deep inside the diamond.He told me he stolen the diamond from a man in south America. He said it weight exactly 140.
Except shock my body, I could not believe my look. On the same evening, the spirit of * tell me the secret of the perfect lens, I find the diamond that I need to create it. I decided to steal his treasure.
