For Sale: One Ring
Bought it at the pawn shop. Instead of turning my finger green, it made it all wraithy. Doesn't seem like it's always the same size or weight; shrinks and expands in an odd way. Tends to suddenly, treacherously slip off a finger where it had been tight.
Unable to melt for scrap value - just glows with letters and starts yelling.
Highest bidder. Nine other offers.True story: I thought the ring was lost. Or stolen. The other day, it showed up in a box of old things I hadn't touched in two years. It was secret. It was safe.
Evidently, it wanted to be found.
