It was the

first time

that I'd ever seen

anything

so
amazing
. The Magician must have been

genuinely magic

because I can't think of

any

other way

the trick could have been done. He took my Grandfather's watch,

smashed

it with a hammer in front of my eyes, and then told me to put my hand into my front pocket.

Low and behold
, there was the watch.

Still
working and

still

ticking, like it had never been touched.
