Elizabeth Peterson

Biography

Elizabeth Peterson lives in Washington and was born in 1998.

My name is Elizabeth Peterson and I'm in the 8th grade. I have one brother, Daniel, who is five. I'm home-schooled, but I go to a home-school center twice a week. I also take Spanish with two home-schooled friends. When I grow up I want to be an obstetrician, but if not that than something else in the sciences. Traveling around the world and visiting every country possible is another thing I want to do when I grow up. I love riding horses, rock-climbing, and trail running.

    A Curse Dark As Gold

    A Curse Dark As Gold

    by Elizabeth Bunce

    "If you'll allow me to demonstrate, I do think I could be of some help to you here."
    I smiled tightly. "You'd have to be able to make gold appear from thin air to be much help to us now, I'm afraid."
    "Gold, you say?" he said quietly. "Well, not out of the air, maybe, but—" He reached toward Rosie and drew a length of straw free from her hat. From out of a pocket in his jacket appeared an old-fashioned handheld drop spindle, the kind no one uses anymore, and he sent it spinning with a turn of his hand. Slowly, as we watched, he drew out the straw and spun it—spun it!
    As if it were a roving of wool! Rosie and I stood there and watched him, moment by moment, as the spindle bobbed and twirled. Something pulled out from the brown straw and through his knobby fingers, and where it should have gone onto the spindle, the finest strands of gleaming gold threads appeared. Round and round the spindle went, and the gleaming of gold turned with it. I don't know how long we watched it, turning and turning, flashing gold with every revolution. I could not take my eyes away.
