Treasure Map – 7

“Can they see us?” said Esme.

“I think we are about to find out,” said Sebastian and pressed himself to the side of the tunnel.

Sebastian signaled to Esme to hold her breath and stay still. The skeletons moved past and headed around the corner.

“Those were Spanish designed helmets,” said Sebastian as they moved towards the now unoccupied cavern. “They were the marines from that Spanish galleon which disappeared near here in 1588”.

“When will they stop and turn around?” said Esme.

“If they come back, we should go down there,” said Sebastian, “we can outrun them”. He went into investigate further

Esme was running her hands through the gold doubloons in one of the chests. She picked one up and bit into it.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
