     “Look! She is over there!” and pointing at the place. They immediately ran to her again, the girl disappeared. “Look! What is that? It is shining!” said one man. Exactly on the spot where the girl was standing, they found a big diamond. The diamond was next to the well. So, they took the diamond home with a lot of water.
