Now the Special English Program American Stories. Our Story is called the Diamond Lenth. It was written by N.. Today we will hear the second and final part of the story. Here is N. with part 2 of the Diamond Lens.

When I was a child, someone gave me a microscope. I spent hours looking through that microscope, exploring natrue's tiny secrets.
As i grew up, I became more interested in my microscope than in people. When I was 20 years old, my parents sent me to New York city to study medicine.
I never went to any of my classes, in stead I spent all my time and a lot of my money trying to build the perfect microscope.
I wanted 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 who lived in the apartment above mine, N. told me about a women who could speak to the dead.
When I visited Madem N., she let me speak to the spirit of the man who invented the microscope, the spirit of N. told me how to make a perfect lens from a diamond of 140 carats. But where could I find a diamond that big?
When I returned home, I went to N.'s 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 his apartment.
We began to drink. By the time we had finished the first bottle, N. was very drunk. "N., I know you have a secret. Why don't you told me about it?"
Something in my voice must have made him feel safe. He made me promise to keep a secret. Then he took a small box from his pocket.
When he opened it, I saw a large diamond shape like a rose. I pure white light seem to come from deep inside the diamond. N. told me he had stolen the diamond from a man in South America.
He said it weight exactly 140 carats. Excitment shock my body. I could not believe my luck. On the same evening that the spirit of N. tells me the secret of the perfect lamps, I find the diamond I need to created it. I decide to steal N.'s treasure.
