I hate climbing, because of the chance of falling. However, when my friend Declan discovered a boulder of silver, atop Mount Wilderness, I was intrigued.
In what seemed like an instant of preparation and ascent; suddenly it was in my hand. I held it up to the sun and referenced Jem’s Guide to Gems. It matched the example in the book. I jumped, tripped then tumbled. That’s how I broke both arms and legs, four ribs.
The fall lead to a newspaper article revealing why we were up on the mountain in the first place. Which lead to the boulder being discovered by a sponsored climber.
