It isn´t Gold Everything that Shines
by Jorge

What would you do if you saw something shining on the floor? I’m going to tell you a story about a boy who took it... he was wrong.

It was a sunny day and nothing could be bad, our friend had just seen a golden coin while he was having a walk, that was the beginning of the end.

He took the coin and kept it in his pocket, it could be valuable, but he was wrong again. He went home, had dinner and went to bed because it was twelve o’clock. His trousers were next to his bed and the coin was there.

He had already fallen asleep when something made a noise, he woke up. It was a strange noise and he was nervous, he was very nervous. The sound didn’t stop. He was afraid, he was very afraid.

Suddenly the sound stopped and it was calm, it was too calm and it was too dark, too.

He saw the coin shining on the floor, but it had become red. Suddenly there were two red coins, but they weren’t coins, no, they were two red eyes. They were the eyes of a monster!

The boy was afraid, but everything ended, the monster disappeared and the boy died.

He shouldn’t have picked up that coin.
