Her face had become thin and she could hardly walk, the wonderful light of her golden hair and blue eyes was gone. At the 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 the drop of water for several days. I had looked into with the microscope but not added. As soon as I looked the glass under the microscope, I understood the horrible true. 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 dry and wrinkle. Her eyes were blank 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.
I finally got better month later. All my money was gone. People now say, “I am crazy.”
They call my lens-lay, the mad scientist. No one believes I spoke to the spirit of Lavin Hook. The laugh when I tell them how I killed June Simon and stole his diamond, made the perfect lens. They think I never saw that beautiful world in the drop of water, but I know the truth of the diamond lens. Now so do you.

You have just heard the “Diamond Lens” by Fitz-James O’Brien. It was adapted for special English by Donald Sanctis. Your storyteller was Morse Joyce. Listen again next week for another American Story told in special English on the Voice of America. This is Shirley Griffith.
