Rare Gem

A deep purple crystal warmed her hand. She searched, heart fluttering. A sea of people washing by, lives busy, unaware.
Eyes darting from face to face, she glanced from necklaces to clutched hands. She glimpsed an unfamiliar man, impressive with his suit and greying hair. Confused, he stared down at his palm.
She approached, dodging through the crowd. Her crystal growing warmer.
His eyes lifted and met hers. They locked.
She froze.
So you are the one? A deep voice rumbled in her mind, a soft smile sparkling in his eyes.
Smiling, she held her soul-stone to her heart.
