Precious was a part of a stable family of five, like platinum occurs in five stable isotopes. Precious loves being outside and in water. One day when precious was working a man named Gabe Gold walked into her store, she began to grow feelings for Gabe, and you could see them together everywhere. Until one day Precious Platinum found out that Gabe Gold had a jewelry shop just down the street. She began to not like him as much because they were constantly competing in sales, like platinum competes with gold in jewelry.
As angry as Precious was that Gabe was beating her sales, she couldn't help but have a little crush on him. Gabe Gold asked Precious Platinum to marry him one day, and so she had nothing to do but say yes. After Gabe and Precious got married, they opened a jewelry store together. They loved each other so much that people said they reminded them of a compound. You can find Gabe and Precious next to each other anywhere, like you can find Platinum and Gold rings in the same store. Gabe and Precious lived happily ever after, and together they made the best store in town.
