Dads are hopeless.  Mine must think I'm a five-year old.  He gave me a bucket and spade when we went to the beach.  A bucket and spade!  He doesn't realise that anything without a screen is seriously useless.  When he bought them, he was probably thinking back to his own youth when they didn't have things with keypads and screens.  I think they wrote on stone tablets or something.  Anyway, what can you do with a bucket and spade in the middle of a beach?  Dig.  Put the sand and litter in the bucket.  Turn upside down and prepare for disappointment.  But just to please Dad...  The thing is, it wasn't an ice-lolly wrapper that turned up at the bottom of my first hole.  It was bright and shiny.  And it definitely shouldn't have been buried on a beach.  I didn't know what to do but I couldn't ignore it so I reached down into the hole.

Little did I know that it would change my life completely, I looked down I could barely breath. At first I thought I was dreaming, but then it all came to me. As I stared looking at the diamond mine shaft I can barely breathe. I showed my dad, and he told me that he would do whatever it took to get down there. As we watched we saw a figure nearby, he had a threatening smirk. As he watched us, we tried to get away. My dad told me to run while he slowed him down. He started chasing us, but we drove off before he could catch us. I thought we should’ve gone to the police, but my dad thought other wise. We pull up at our house, we slowly get out of our car he’s there, and ready to make us pay.

"Wait!" The stranger shouted. "I saw what you found in the sand, I want to make a deal with you."
Me and my dad listened to the strangers story, and we went back to the beach, only to find that the tide was coming in and the mine shaft was slowly disappearing.
The stranger said to dad "Wait, there is another way in. "
We still didn't trust him, but we followed him into a deep dark damp cave. At the back we could just about see something moving in the mist...

As we went deeper into the cave, the shadowy figure revealed himself. He was a dark wizard, he summoned a big rusty chain which he ordered us to climb down. How do you climb down a rusty chain? I thought. “Well I’ll tell you”, the dark wizard exclaimed reading my mind. “JUST DO IT NOW!!!” shouted the dark wizard. “Oh oh oh Ok”, I muttered.

As I descended down the chain, I fell into a large open space…..

Boom! They found themselves lying on the cold, damp, floor. The gloomy darkness of the icy room made them squint a few times. Finally they could see ahead of them.

"Are you alright, son?" His father panicked as he found him.

"Yeah, I think so. You?" He replied, scanning the room.

After that, they stumbled upon a curious looking door. Upon the rusted front, they read a sign saying, "DANGER: do not enter". They each looked to one another as if asking, "Do we go in?" As if all agreeing at once, they pushed the door. After they got in the door closed and turned to dry ice-bars that had liquid nitrogen that when you touch it burns your hands right through.

Gradually they noticed a mysterious, metal door covered in ancient bones.

Next to the door there was a glistening panel, that was diamond clad with buttons. The sign read, 'Beware! Do not enter!'

They peered at each other nervously. Mysteriously, the door creaked open by itself...

Out came more creepy, gooey zombies which walked towards them. Before they knew it they were trapped in a small corner, nowhere to go! I bumped the ice cold wall and all of a sudden a small shiny diamond fell out and hit me on the head. As I picked up the small and very shiny diamond, surprisingly the zombies began to settled. Dad realised that the diamonds must have a calming effect on the zombies.

“Quick” Dad yelled, “let’s get as many diamonds as we can”. So they kept banging the wall for more diamonds to fall. Eventually the zombies fall into a deep sleep. Quickly Dad and I run until we see a sign that says EXIT. They run out and his son glanced down. In his pocket he sees a pile of very shiny diamonds…..

"Oh I forgot about the pile of diamonds I have in my pocket" said the son.

 "We should of kept the diamonds in the cave, with the zombies so they stay in a deep sleep and don't come out of the doors AGAIN!!!" said Dad

As they where running every step, he dropped a precious diamond. In the distance behind them was a shadow, they didn't know that it was the dark wizard. As every diamond dropped, the dark wizard would pick one up and keep it in his safe possession. They came to a halt when they realised that they had been dropping diamonds every step they took. They kept running until they got home as they where too scared to go back. When they returned home the stranger was too scared to even say a word, he ran of into the distance until he disappeared. The dark wizard was still picking up diamonds. When they got inside they sat on the couch, BANG!!! it was the dark wizard. He was just returning the lost diamonds from the son's pocket. The dark wizard is actually not so dark after all. They put the diamonds into a chest, buried it in the ground and promised each other never to go back to the horrific cave again. They knew that the diamonds were there if they ever needed them.
