Tom Swift Among the Diamond Makers; Or, the Secret of Phantom Mountain

( 3 )

Overview

"Well, Tom Swift, I don't believe you will make any mistake if you buy that diamond," said the jeweler to a young man who was inspecting a tray of pins, set with the sparkling stones. "It is of the first water, and without a flaw."
"It certainly seems so, Mr. Track. I don't know much about diamonds, and I'm depending on you. But this one looks to be all right."
"Is it for yourself, Tom?"

Overview

"Well, Tom Swift, I don't believe you will make any mistake if you buy that diamond," said the jeweler to a young man who was inspecting a tray of pins, set with the sparkling stones. "It is of the first water, and without a flaw."
"It certainly seems so, Mr. Track. I don't know much about diamonds, and I'm depending on you. But this one looks to be all right."
"Is it for yourself, Tom?"
"Er-no-that is, not exactly," and Tom Swift, the young inventor of airships and submarines, blushed slightly.
"Ah, I see. It's for your housekeeper, Mrs. Baggert. Well, I think she would like a pin of this sort. True, it's rather expensive, but-"
"No, it isn't for Mrs. Baggert, Mr. Track," and Tom seemed a bit embarrassed.
"No? Well, then, Tom-of course it's none of my affair, except to sell you a good stone, But if this brooch is for a young lady, I can't recommend anything nicer. Do you think you will take this; or do you prefer to look at some others?"
"Oh, I think this will do, Mr. Track. I guess I'll take-"
Tom's words were interrupted by a sudden action on the part of the jeweler. Mr. Track ran from behind the showcase and hastened toward the front door.
"Did you see him, Tom?" he cried. "I wonder which way he went?"
"Who?" asked the lad, following the shopkeeper.

    Phantom's RPer

    Um... well, hi anyone who showed up! Please tell me here which RPs Phantom could join. Please read his bio first though:

    Goes By: Phantom, for safety reasons so that his many enemies can't connect him to anyone
    Real Name: Unknown. In case you haven't guessed already, the name Phantom is an alias
    Gender: Male
    Age: Seems to be in his early twenties or late teens
    Appearance: He has a well-toned, muscular, yet nimble body, allowing him to move swiftly and silently. He has scarlet red eyes, almost the exact color of blood. His hair is pure black, and his skin is dark like a Gypsy's. He usually wears a black assassin's uniform, similar to the one Ezio wears in Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and had several weapons. Daggers hang from his belt, two swords are strapped to his back, dual flintlock pistols in their holsters also attached to his belt, and his many hidden pockets hold vials of poison and small throwing knives. Surprisingly to most people, he has pitch black wings that are usually neatly folded over his back, mainly hidden by the "cape" of his uniform. His facial features, however, are usually hidden by the hood of his uniform. But as many could probably tell, most of the time he is scowling... but at no one in particular.
    Personality: Dark, quiet, emotionless... on the surface. But deep down he really is a nice guy. You just have to get to know him better...
    Status: Single. His position and "job" makes it inconvenient for dating, and besides, he's a killer. Who would love someone like that...?
    Fanily: Only known family is Ghost, his brother. As you could have guessed, the name Ghost is also an alias, for safety reasons of course.
    History: He is quite tight-lipped on this subject...
    Other: Merely ask... if you dare.
