Now the Special English Program American English.Our story is called Diamond Lens, it was written by Fitz-James O’Brien. Today we were here the second and final part of the story, here is Maurce Jorce with part two with the Diamond Lens.

When I was child someone give me a microscope, I spent hours looking through that microscope, exploring nature’s tiny secrets. As I grew up, I became more interested in microscope than in people.

When I was 20 years old my parents sent me to New York City to study medicine. I never went any of my classes. Instead I spend all my time and a lot of my money trying to build the perfect microscope. I want to make a powerful lens that would let me see even the smallest parts of life, but all my experiments failed.

Then, one day, I met a young man lived in the apartment above mine. June Simon told me about a woman who could speak to the dead. When I visited Madam Morphes she let me speak to the spirit of the man who invented microcrope. The spirit of U. Leeuwenhoek told me how to make a perfect lens from diamond of one hundred forty carats. But where could I find a diamond that big.

When I returned the home I went to Simon’s apartment. He was surprised to see me and try to hide a small subject in his pocket. I wanted to discover what it was, so I bought two bottles of wine to his apartment. We began to drink, by the time we had finished the first bottle Simon was very drunk.

“Simon, I know you have a secret. Why don’t you tell me about it? Something in my voice must have made him feel safe.”

He made me promised to keep the secret, then he took a small box from his pocket. When he open it I saw a large diamond shape like a rose, a pure white light seemed come from deep inside the diamond. Simon told me he had stolen the diamond from a man in South America. He said it weighed exactly one hundred forty carats.

Excitement shook my body, I could not believe my luck. On the same evening that the spirit of Leeuwenhoek tells me the secret of the perfect lens, I find the diamond I need to created it. I decided to steal Simon’s treasure.
