Story 8 Steve Skidmore & Steve Barlow

It was a bad beginning, an even worse middle and the ending is in the balance…
I know this sounds like some mad story opening, but it isn’t! This is real - as real as the snowflakes falling on the parrot that’s sitting on my shoulder.
How could I have been so stupid as to get myself involved in such a crazy undertaking? Why did I listen to my even-more stupid brother? And why did I agree to come to this awful place?
Maybe if I tell you what happened, I’ll find the answers and get to an ending - and hopefully it will be a happy one…

Once my brother had come home he ran in and said

‘’ Hi do you want to hear the story that one of my friend stories that he told me about how much treasure another pirate hid in the ice age times ‘’ 

‘’ No thanks…Not yet because I have something to show you first’’

And after that I pulled of the huge dusty blanket that was sitting on top of the time machine then when the dusty blanket came of there it was my super-duper fabulous time machine called the XPORTAL 3749G.

‘’that’s amazing, and the exact type of portal that we need to take to travel back in time to find that treasure.

Next, the pirates go into the time machine. It wiggles and shakes and the pirates feel scared and it’s freezing in there, but at last it stops and they open the creaky door. It’s dark and there’s no light to switch on. One of the pirates said “ouch” and looked down and a crab pinched his foot. They didn’t know where they were, but they could feel sand under their feet. They said “we must be on the beach as I can feel sand on my toes” and another pirate said “let’s go and explore”. They could see a door open with a light shining through.

Another pirate felt something else in the sand. It was a treasure map and a torch! They started their adventure that same day.

The pirates looked at the treasure map. It showed colossal dark cave, a deep well pool, huge mountains, a dangerous dark forest and a really scary path. The cross was on a gigantic wreck of a       pirate ship.

The brave pirates went off in search of the treasure.  They headed towards the big dark dingy caves. Scare Face and Metal Beard pulled out their sharp swords, because they were scared. A spider fell down from the creepy ceiling. Metal Beard swung his sword around and around. The spider was guarding a secret passage. Metal Beard swung his sword again and killed the spider with one big whack. There was a bobby trap arrrrrrrrrrr!

They fell for what felt like hours down a hole the size of 20 African elephants, then splash they landed into a swirling whirlpool of multi-coloured, pure water that kept turning from freezing cold to boiling hot!  Out of the corner of their eye they spotted a canoe, this was their best chance of survival.  A huge wave suddenly swept them luckily into the canoe and the tide took them deeper into the cave.  There they found an old, rusty pirate ship which looked like it was covered in booty, gold booty.  With tears of excitement they clambered onto the ship only to discover that the booty was actually chocolate coins!!!!!  Scar Face picked up the biggest chocolate coin he could find and started stuffing his face, Metal Beard then noticed a lever which was hidden under the chocolate coin saying 'DO NOT PULL'.  Well, being pirates they ignored the sign and pulled the lever anyway!  A secret door in the cave wall opened and poisonous vampire bats flew out as quick as a flash.  The pirates decided to investigate, Metal Beard went first with Scar face hiding behind him.  Inside the cave they found tunnels of ever shape and size leading off in different directions, but which one should they take.......

They all agreed that they should go into the second tunnel. However, blocking their path was a big poisonous rattle snake!!! They ran out of the second tunnel and into the first tunnel in panic. If the second tunnel had made them scared, the contents of the first tunnel made their bones shake with fear!

In front of them, all hairy and sweaty, they saw a massive troll with a pet spider as big as a tiger. They stopped dead, and then started silently creeping backwards toward the entrance of the cave. They could smell the troll’s stale sweat from 20 metres away…they could even taste it! Unfortunately, as he was walking backwards,

Metal Beard tripped over a rock and hit his head on the side of the cave wall, knocking him unconscious. The spider grabbed his leg and gave him to the troll who troll gleefully tugged him apart and shared him with the spider like a pack of wolves sharing a piece of meat; it smelled like the sewers.

After Metal Beard was torn apart, all that was left was a skeleton and a skull. Next they ran out of the first tunnel and into the third. In the third tunnel there was mummified bodies with emerald eyes. The pirates were overwhelmed by the emeralds so they started scavenging them like stray dogs looking through a bin for food.

Just as Scarface had pulled the final emerald from one of the mummies, the floor unexpectedly collapsed and suddenly they found themselves in a shark tank...

Even though he was scared, Scarface thought it was a good idea to stay silent, so that the sharks wouldn't hear him. Scarface was really good at holding his breath and so he swam to the bottom of the tank, where he spotted a wooden door. He hoped it would be a secret passage. When he opened the door, there was a spider who squirted poisonous ink at him. Luckily, Scarface used his sword to deflect the ink back at the spider, which killed the spider.

Scarface went through the tunnel and found some air. He was feeling really weird, sweaty and very cold after all of that.

Then he spotted another door and he felt relieved. When he opened the door he saw an obstacle course. He was a bit worried of sliding down the hill on one side of the obstacle course. He saw a sign which said he had 3 chances to get across.  He failed on his first attempt, but thankfully, he completed it on his second attempt.

When he got to the top of the hill, he looked around him and realised he was on a mountain. When he looked down, he saw that he was stood on the X marks the spot…

Scarface starts digging the X and he ends up in a sordid underground temple and there are tons of creatures surrounding him. He try’s using his sword to defend himself but the creature ate his sword, fortunately the sword stabbed through the creature’s throat when it ate it and green blood spread everywhere. He felt slightly relived. Then the other horrifying creature started to attack him. He rips of his arm and Scarface screams in pain as the creature devours him. Then… from out of the blue a hooded figure jumps from the ceiling and kills all the creatures. It tucks its sword into his jacket. The figure was a man that looked like he had been there for donkey’s years. His name was tom. “Hi, I am tom” he said in a kind of old voice. “Who are you?” asked Scarface. “I am the guard of the treasure, but the creature stole it off me. Thanks for helping defeat the creature, sorry about your arm.” “thanks” said Scarface “do you want some of the treasure?” said tom “ yes if you can give some to me that’s fine!” so scar face climbs back up the hole that he dug and gets back on the ship and goes home.
