When the sun goes down, she watches the light rays bounce off the water on each leaf from the garden. He tells her that she should pick each flower from the root and sell them for a huge profit. Any business man would say that. She sat in anger as she yelled at the other business man.

"Don't listen to him, I have made more money. I think you will make a larger profit if you sell your neighbors flowers. You will also have your flowers in your garden to keep."

The two men constrict her and make her so upset that she has to run away. Run away from the means annoying voices pocking at her ear drum. There aren’t many places to run when you are stuck on a deserted island. Each stop she takes makes the heat arise from the ground. She looks up at each break in the ground and follows it to the top of the huge crater like mountain. She watches as the steam bombards the air on top of the crater. She slowly climbs the mountain hoping that she could get away from the bickering business men. Their voices replayed in her head. She screams to make it stop. They seemed to never disappear. She hears the ground rumble with pain. Hear ears vibrate with each ripple of sound that hits her ears. She shrieks in fear and decides to walk elsewhere. She walked toward a green pasture where she found a tree with the only shade found on the island. The breeze blew through each strand of hair and flew from each direction. As she sat under the tree, she hears the annoying voices again.

“Who’s there?” She asked.
“Its Sean, you know the guy who told you to sell your garden.”
“What do you want Sean? Just leave me alone!”
“I’m not here to try to make you sell it, I just wanted to talk; what’s your name?”
“My name is Celeste, Celeste Docenheart.”
“Well Celeste, you shouldn’t listen to Christian, he doesn’t know…”
“Hey, Hey,” Christian interrupted, “don’t listen to Sean, I am telling you, you can make a fortune selling all those other flowers. Who doesn’t want money and their own garden?”

 Celeste buried her head in her lap. She ran away from the tree toward the street where no cars moved and no people walked. She found a suitcase with a lock and a very large key that was lying next to it. The two men argued and yelled inside her mind. She had to open the case. Ignoring the argument between the men she quickly grabbed the key and pushed it into the lock. She stopped, hoping that this was not a trick of some sort. She blinked. The fear from her mind forced her to breathe erratically. She slowly turned the key and closed her eyes. Everything was safe. She sat there waiting for something to occur. She opened her eyes in surprise.
“I’m safe!”

 She slowly opened the case, and to her surprise, it was a case full of money. The men gasped in her head. They started arguing again and realized that they would never go away. These men have been speaking to her in her ear all her life and she was finally going to get rid of it. But how? She stood there in deep thought, ignoring the men’s screeches. They always want to do something for themselves; maybe if I did something for someone else they will have to go away! She picked up the case and ran home. She had a case filled with money and decided that the only thin left was to get rid of it. She sealed it up in a box. She put in a mail box and waiting for it to disappear. She went inside and looked in the mirror. The voices where gone. They stopped bickering. She smiled.

One day a man came across a box. A box with a suitcase with a lock and a huge key next to it.
