Day 273 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Write about a treasure hunt.
Erin: By the time I got to the last location in the hunt it was just a note that simply said “the real treasure is in the journey.” I was ready to take down the monster who had sent me on my wild goose chase.
Shannon: “Do you think this is real, or are we just doing this because we’re bored?” I wondered out loud.
He didn’t take in my doubts. “This map hasn’t been touched for decades. There will be treasure,” he sounded so confident.
I smiled, “Promise you won’t be disappointed if we keep searching and don’t find anything. It’s just…I had a really good time, either way.”
He reached for my hand, “I had a good time too, and I won’t regret one second.”
“X” marks the spot, or does it?
