3: When I was discovered, I was really small, like, 1849, during the Californian Gold Rush. I had always exsisted, just not awake. But as soon as my father found me, he took off to the bank to sell me. It was the worst. Living in foster care isn't the greatest you know. Going around being melted, over, and over, and over, again. But, finally, in the year 1969, I got married to a diamond, and together we lived happily in a ring. But, one day in the middle of the night, we were stolen from our owner. They whisked us off to a jewerly store, where my husband and I said our goodbyes. They separated us, and, once again, I was back in foster care. When we were melted at the end of the year, I became a a heart locket, packaged up and sold in a little velvet box. Someone bought me to give to their girlfriend, but tragically died in a car crash. It was given to the girlfriend, and I stayed being passed on from generation to generation, until I reached my mommy, who wrote down my stories and put them on paper.
