“Stop! I’ve got to sit down for a minute.”
“Oh, come on, Will! We’ve got to keep on going. We don’t want anybody else to find the treasure.”
Will cast a sardonic look up at his buddy as he took a swig of water. “I’m beginning to believe this treasure hunt of yours is a bunch of hooey. We’ve been out here for hours and found nothing.”
“But Kara swears if we can find the rock that looks like the skull of a giant ape we’ll find a treasure in jewels and gold.”
“If she’s is so sure it’s out here, then why doesn’t she look for it?”
“Seriously?! She’s a tiny woman, she wouldn’t be able to carry it out once she found it. That’s why I agreed we would split it with her.”
Will took another swig of water, stood up and said, “Screw it! I’m done with this treasure hunt.”
Whining all the way, his buddy climbed down from the rock they had just climbed and they began the long trek back to their Jeep.
As the sun began to set, the light glinted off something shiny at the base of the rock they had just left.
