Knowing that I couldn't possibly pay for the gold amulet or a silver necklace, I gestured towards the plain-looking ring. Its surface was that of dull metal and even looked chipped here and there. Frankly, it looked cheap and therefore I felt like it was the easiest thing to pay for.
"You have a good eye," the deep-voiced man said.
Really? It didn't look like anything special. But perhaps looks could be deceiving?
He asked for five gold pieces and I gave it to him. Then, in a puff of smoke, the cloaked man was gone.
I wondered if I should use the ring myself or wait until I met up with Suzie and give it to her. As I left the alley, I wondered exactly what the ring did.
