The Hunt

The island we live on is rich in ancient legends.  We’re going to find out if they’re true.  We are a group of five kids who are desperate for adventure.

We arrived at the cave on the beach looking for treasure.  We all talked at once about what to spend the gold on.  Suddenly Robert shrieked,

“Guys, I found something!”

We rushed to his side and peered into the hole.  It was a box with the letters R.I.P. carved into the top.

“What does R.I.P. mean?” I asked.

Robert pulled up the box, opened it and said,

“Ah darn, it’s just old bones!?”

    Fun! Another famous five just waiting for their break. I love that there are always undiscovered treasures for kids to find, because they have fresh eyes on old things. Love the name of you blog BTW!

    I half expected a voice to ring out “it might be old bones to you boy, but it’s what’s left of my life…” A pity that they didn’t realise what a treasure they’d found. Nice one.

      Thanks alot Sandra. Herein lies the value of taking the time to comment. Have you watched the Disney movie The Lion King? That voice you heard ringing out played, in my mind, as the voice of Scar (Jeremy Irons), King Mufasa’s evil brother. Then my mind raced down the thread of a story line where the party of kids discover what they had really discovered. Writing rocks doesn’t it? lol Thanks kiddo!

    Love that last line and the fact that the kids didn’t realize what RIP meant.
