WonHundred Word Wednesday

This week's prompt: 

She had found something that would mean she'd never be poor again--but there was a catch.

Tasanee climbed a mountain of black plastic bags and looked out at a world of rubbish—the Bangkok dump. A sickening stench wafted through the air, but with luck she’d find discarded rice cakes for breakfast. Suddenly she slipped, falling on her back. Her hand broke a bag and rancid grease squished through her fingers. When she pulled out her hand, a ring came with it. Its diamond gleamed in the sunlight. She had found something that would mean she’d never be poor again—but there was a catch. If I try to sell it, they’ll think I stole it.

I'm curious to see what other writers have done with this prompt, aren't you? Check out the links and find out.
