Eden and Arnold were consumed with grief and anger after Elaina's death. Eden's thirst for revenge kept him going and he vowed to stop at nothing till Vincent paid, even with his blood.Arnold sighed,"Eden, I know how much this hurts you, I want you to…""I did not solicit any advice from you Arnold… It's my wife in question here, you don't know what it feels," Eden said, slightly raising his voice.Arnold stared at him in silence for a while, "Maybe I didn't lose my wife Eden, but I know what pain is,""Then you should help me fight this course Arnold, fight with me, let's avenge her death and get the treasure," he said in a shaky voice.Arnold walked over to his friend, "I'm here for you and you know it… let's go,". Eden's face lit up at Arnold's words and they set out to find Vincent.Their journey was filled with danger and challenges, but Eden was too focused on his revenge to stop. He pushed through every obstacle and danger they faced, determined to catch up with Vincent and hi
Eliana's heart was pounding as she ran through the dense jungle, trying to put as much distance as possible between herself and Vincent's men who were fast catching up with her. She could hear their footsteps pounding behind her, their harsh breaths sounding like growls in her ears. She couldn't afford to stop, else the key got to Vincent."Stop running, Eliana!" Vincent's voice boomed behind her. "It's pointless. We'll catch you eventually." Vincent growled as he increased his pace.Eliana didn't dare turn around, she could feel his eyes on her back, burning into her like hot coals. She knew he was right, knew that she couldn't outrun them forever. But it was better than giving in to his callous threat. The key had to be protected at all cost, let it get into the wrong hands and Vincent isn't the best option to be in possession of the keys.As she ran, she noticed a flowing river through the trees and increased her pace. Without giving much thought to it, she changed course and ran t
Vincent stood at the edge of the cliff, scanning the vast expanse of jungle below him. His eyes narrowed, and a fierce look crossed his face as he thundered at the top of his voice,"We've just been outsmarted by that serpent Eliana! She's stolen the key from me! And we're not going to let her get away with it!""We're going to find her, and we're going to get that key back. And we'll do whatever it takes, even if we have to kill her!". He thundered as his men looked with trepidation at his outburst.Vincent knew that it wouldn't be difficult to track Eliana down. She was alone, vulnerable, and didn't have anyone to protect her. He gave orders to his men, "Spread out and search every inch of this jungle until you find her. And if you see her, don't hesitate to bring her to me.""We would do as you have instructed, Sir" one of his men answered as they bowed in terror and scurried off into the jungle.Vincent took a deep breath and clenched his fists, "I don't care what it takes," he mu
Days turned into weeks with no clue on how to find the treasure or anything relating to the note. Despite all of these, Eden and Arnold continued the journey,trekking through the thick jungle that housed tall trees and harbored wild animals .They kept on searching for any hint or meaning behind the mysterious number "27". Still, they had yet to come across anything that could offer them a clue. Eden was growing increasingly frustrated and discouraged, feeling like they were going in circles without making any progress."I don't know what we're supposed to do, Arnold there's no hope!" Eden said, kicking a stone in frustration. "We've been at this for weeks and we're no closer to finding the treasure."Arnold sighed heavily. "I know, Eden. But we can't give up… not so fast. We have to keep searching.""What in heaven's name are we even searching for? At first the note seemed like it had some kind of message embedded in it and now… now it's like there's no hope.We don't even know what
Arnold and Eden trudged along the dirt path, their feet heavy and weary from the long journey they had been on. The sun beat down on their backs, making their clothes cling to their skin with sweat. Arnold's face was dripping with sweat as gasped for air.He let out a deep sigh and rubbed his eyes with his fingers, trying to shake off the fatigue that had settled in his bones. "Man, I'm starving," he groaned.Eden stared at him equally feeling exhausted, but he wouldn't stop till he found Eliana… and the key. He chuckled. "Yeah, me too. We should have packed more food.""I didn't think we'd be on the road this long," Arnold replied.Eden sat on a small rock and rubbed his forehead slightly, "I know we didn't bargain for this but we have to keep moving,"Arnold scoffed, "Keep moving? Keep moving, you say, if that woman didn't steal the keys to the treasure we would have been at home, and none of all these would have even come up in the first place!" He said, his voice slightly raised.
The journey was beginning to get the better part of Eden. Not only was he frustrated with the fact that they weren’t catching sight of Eliana, he was sad that she had the strength to run away from him without returning. The depth of the betrayal was heavy on his soul and that prompted him to start behaving in an erratic manner.Earlier, he and Arnold stumbled across a pack in the city. They successfully stole some meals that was brought in my people in the pack. It was a crazy experience for Eden since the last thing he wanted was stealing from innocent people, but they had no choice. Once they showed their guns to them, the people gave up their food and even, some of their money immediately.“We shouldn’t have collected any part of their money”, Eden suggested the minute the left the are where the people were.Arnold scoffed and chuckled calmly, without an iota of guilt in his eyes.“We did what we had to do to survive! I hold no remorse”, he said and immediately, Eden stopped right
Eliana rushed into a small hut that stayed at a hidden part of the city. She looked behind her as she tried to confirm that she was not being followed.“Who are you?” A man in his late fifties asked as he blew a whistle, prompting some guards to rush over to him.They all stared at Eliana, like a threat who must have come to wipe them out.“I’m not threat! You have to believe me”, Eliana said as she gasped heavily, trying so hard to catch her breath.She looked back again while the men tried to monitor her closely and ascertain what she was currently up to at the moment.“Why are you running?” One of the men asked, walking closer to her and looking into her eyes as though the answer to her question laid there.Eliana took in a deep breath and sighed heavily. There was no way she would open up her mouth and tell the men that she was running because she had a key which would unlock a great treaure. That would only mean putting her life in trouble.“Some men were chasing me! I did nothin
The ravine walls were steep and slippery, making it impossible to climb out. The river flowed rapidly, making it too dangerous to swim across. They were trapped, with no clear way out. Eden's frustration and desperation grew as he realized that they may be stuck in this ravine for days, or even weeks. He worried about Elaina's safety and the possibility that someone else may find the key before they do.“What are you thinking of?” Arnold asked as he tapped Eden’s shoulders lightly. Eden took in a deep breath and forced a smile to his face. He was deeply worried and despite how hard he tried to conceal it, it still showed on his face. “Are you worried about her?” Arnold asked as he gazed at Eden who nodded his head in affirmation.A small scoff escaped his lips the moment he took note of Eden’s response. He couldn’t say why Eden was more worried about his wife than himself.“We are the ones lost in the middle of a ravine. We have no idea of how we are going to survive and if we are
