Her face had become thin and she could hardly walk. The wonderful light in her golden hair and blue eyes was gone. At that moment I would have given my soul to become as small as she and enter her world to help her. What was causing her to be so sick? She seemed in great pain. I watched her for hours, helpless and alone with my breaking heart. She grew weaker and weaker. The forest also was changing. The trees were losing their wonderful colors.

Suddenly, I realized I had not looked at the drop of water for several days. I'd looked into it with the microscope but not at it. As soon as I looked at the glass under the microscope, I understood the horrible truth. I had forgotten to add more oil to the drop of water to stop it from drying. The drop of water had disappeared. I rushed again to look through the lens. The rainbow forests were all gone. My love lay in a spot of weak light. Her pink body was dried and wrinkled. Her eyes were /as/ black as dust. Slowly, she disappeared forever.

I fainted and woke many hours later on pieces of my microscope. I had fallen on it when I fainted. My mind was as broken as the diamond lens. I crawled to my bed and withdrew from the world.

When I finally got better months later, all my money was gone. People now say I am crazy. They call me ''Linley, the mad scientist''. No one believes I spoke to the spirit of Leeuwenhoek. They laugh when I tell them how I killed Jules Simon and stole his diamond to make the perfect lens. They think I never saw that beautiful world in a drop of water. But I know the truth of the diamond lens. And now so do you.

You have just heard ''The Diamond Lens'' by FiztJames O'Brien. It was adapted for Special English by Dona de Sanctis. Your storyteller was Maurice Joyce. Listen again next week for another American story told in Speical English on the Voice of America. This is Shirley Griffith.
