Hi everyone, The short story begins with a child playing with his ball and the ball rolls into a psychic's tent. He goes inside to retrieve it - and as he's about to pick it up, he spots a glowing crystal ball that is emitting mist inside of it. He picks up his ball to compare both of them, then swaps. (Places his ball on the table and puts the crystal one in his backpack ----not as an intention of stealing; he believes it's a toy. ) The psychic ( who I envision as a 10-ft. tall person with a dark demeanor...could be inhuman? And looks like Coraline's 'other mother' from the movie Coraline) spots him replacing the balls behind the curtains. The boy's somewhere between the ages of 5-7...so his intentions are innocent and obviously... he's not knowledgeable about the world, cannot distinguish between right or wrong, etc... What do you see happening from this point on? How could I incorporate the idea of losing a child's innocence in this?
