Essence of Jewels


by M. J. Joachim
Bright orange, then glistening rows of purple disappeared from the screen. Dena clicked on the special white block and knocked out all the blue shapes too. Her friends hurriedly tried to catch her, knowing what winning Bejeweled on Facebook meant tonight. The phrase “going viral” took on new meaning. The experience of a lifetime was waiting!

Before she could blink, Dena found herself mesmerized by the screen…

Drawn in, captivated and transported to another time, another place.

Transitioning was blinding!!!

“Oh, my head! My head!!! It hurts so bad,” she screamed!!!

No one responded to her cries.

Vibrant light, shattering voltages, Dena jerked, then exploded and suddenly disappeared.

Slowly, she felt herself reemerge; she squinted to see where she was.

“Glory, Robin, Judith, Olivia, Susan???”

If only they could understand what winning Bejeweled on Facebook really meant tonight!!!

“Ladies, what are you doing? Why are you trying to kill me,” she pleaded, hoping they could see and understand.

Without warning, Dena was zapped again into oblivion. 

Captured by the promise of jewels, caught by their very essence, she was to remain forever trapped!
