I still couldn't see the letter A on my stone. Jade must have really good eye sight, then again, that was her power. We were finally getting some clues to all this. But Atlantis? Wasn't that just myths and fairy tales? I rubbed my sapphire gently, watching the light reflect of it. If you had asked me yesterday though, I would have put powers under the title of fairy tales.
