Cathy cons old lady out of Moodstone ring for 50p finds it goes ugly colours only for her. Cathy is mean to people and Moonstone turns black, sucking all colour out of her life (uses medium - panels replicate the colours she sees eg purple tones and then finally B&W). Mean Cathy punished as Moodstone dazzles her and all colour vanishes from final panel ‘all the colour’s gone out of my life…wherever I look everybody has turned black.’ Narrative caption (no narrator shown) ending it ‘ Perhaps it was the moodstone dazzling her that made Cathy colour blind, or perhaps – with her black moods – Cathy had been colour blind to all the good things in life for a long time…’ – raising qs not answering them.
