She presented a little box and opened it so I could see what was inside. There was a beautiful purple ring. It was simple but mesmerising.
“What is this for?” I asked, confused.
“Try it on!” she insisted and giggled.
“I really can’t accept that. I didn’t get you anything.” I shook my head. Guilt was settling in my stomach.
She grinned ear to ear and took my hand and pulled it towards her. She grabbed the ring and pushed it on my index finger.
“Wait, wait,” I mumbled. The ring was cutting into my skin. I retracted my hand but it was already on my finger. “Ow.” It bit into my skin like a row of teeth. I stared at my finger and blood seeped from beneath the ring. I tried to rip it off but it wouldn’t budge. I noticed that there were gold bits arising from the purple stone. “What is this?” I shrieked. The pain intensified.
She stared at the ring intently, as if waiting to collect it once it was done.
