Lucky Charm – Mondays Finish the Story

Finish the story begins with: “She lived a life that some would describe as being on edge.”

She’s always loved swimming – in swimming pools, rivers, lakes or seas. She’s been down in every imaginable piece of diving gear known to man as well as a wide array of underwater submersibles and crafts. In one of these diving trips, she found a couple of old nickels and kept them as souvenirs. She put a hole in the coins and wore them as her necklace. With them around her neck, she did other extreme sports – skateboarding, mountain rock climbing, jet skiing and bungee jumping. Like the bulls in her coins, she’s always charging full on.

Having said that, she needed money to pay for all these extreme hobbies. She had some jewellery given to her by her mother and she went to the antique shop to have them valued. She got some money for them, then the man saw her necklace. He said that old coins would have fetched a considerable amount, but because she put a hole in them, now they don’t have any value.

    And that’s why she should probably have had them looked at before turning them into a necklace. Great story!

    Interesting take on the prompt. She make a necklace out of the coins and probably now could kick herself. Oh well. 🙂

    So very true, I have a bracelet made of the same coins, such a waste. No, I didn’t make it, someone else did. My hubby collects coins and he was appalled! 🙂 Well written!

    Interesting story. I like to think things happen for a reason, maybe in the long run the lucky charm will be worth more to her than money.

    I was thinking about the value of the coins when I read she put a hole in them. Not a good idea. Well done, Lady Lee. —- Suzanne
