Ms. Ag, Silver was a lonely lady. Although she was wealthy she had no real friends. She used to have many friends but she soon realized that they only liked her because she had shiny properties and belongings. She longed for a more pure source of reliable friends.


One day Ms. Silver was introduced to a group known today as The Periodic Table of Elements by Mr. Dimitri Mendeleev. This group of people seemed to suit what she needed. They were all pure substances and she could trust them. She interacted with some of them to make different compounds.


On this table she is seated near a lot of other pure metals. She is directly above Mr. Gold and diagonal from Nickle. She now feels stronger than ever. She is happy with her new group of friends.
