"Wait!" Jon called before Karyn had gotten out of earshot.

The girl turned around and approached her friend.

"I think," Jon said, "that we won't make wishes that are quite so hasty if we know that there are heavier consequences. And that we should make sure that no matter what, we are in this together. So I wish that any future wish made on this stone that affects one of us, will affect both of us. Now if anything goes wrong, it goes wrong for both of us, and we've have to work together to fix it."

Karyn blinked, her mind processing what had just happened. Then her face darkened. "Jon, you idiot."

Jon was taken aback.

"We are different people. We want different things. If I want to get accepted into Columbia University, but you want to go to Cornell, whichever one of us gets to make the wish first, that's the university we're both going to."

"Well, we can wish to be accepted to both, and the choose opposite schools," Jon reasoned.

"It was just an example!" the girl fumed. "Geez, there are a million different ways this can go wrong, why did you make that wish?"

"I was trying to--"

"You know what? I don't even want to talk about it. I'm going home. We'll deal with that," she pointed at the stone, "and this" she pointed at her own chest, "tomorrow."

And with that, Karyn turned on her heels and walked away at a very quick pace.

Jon was left speechless, and turned to walk home, himself. But he was thinking so much about Karyn's anger, trying to figure out a way to calm her down, that he didn't realize he'd put down the stone.

Because, of course the first thing Jon does after making a wish like that is to lose the stone. But after the two teens left, who picked it up?
