In the year 1996, an old man found a treasure in a cave. When he looked inside, he saw that there was a bunch of coins and jewels in a bag! He decided to leave it there because he wanted to be a moral person by being honest. He ran away because he wanted to be a normal person and having a treasure might change him.
Now, the year is 2017. A boy named Ryan is a 7th grader. He is still at school. His dream is to have a fortune. He wants this because he wants to become the richest person in the world and have an awesome home with a swimming pool.
That is his wish. All he wants is coins and jewels. One day, he found an unknown number calling on his phone.
“Are you Ryan?”
“I need you to come with me.”
“Me?! Where to?!”
“You will find out!”
“Look. If it’s dangerous, then I’m not going.”
“Don’t worry! You will be fine! Ok?”
“Then, I’ll go tomorrow . Sounds good?”
“Okay. This Saturday. Got it?”
Ryan didn’t know what was going on, but he decided he was going to find out.
It is Saturday, 2:30 P.M, and Ryan and the stranger are meeting at the docks beneath the bridge. “So, what is it that you are gonna tell me?”
“I located a treasure around here.” The stranger wanted to show Ryan because the stranger once talked to Ryan at the library and discovered that Ryan wants wealth.
Ryan walked with the stranger and went to a cave. It was near, about 5 kilometers away! Ryan feels scared, because he thinks that there will be a trap. He sees a sacred box because it has the rarest jewels. He opens it, and he sees a bunch of coins and jewels. It wasn’t money, it was just golden coins and jewels.
“Yes! These are the ones that I wished for! Hey you! Where did you get this?”
“I located this when I detected it with my radar.”
“You detected this?”
“Okay. Thanks for your help.”
Ryan had finally gotten what he wanted, thanks to the stranger. Finally, he is now the richest person! He feels like a king.
To make a long story short, Ryan didn’t know that getting wealth doesn’t mean that life is awesome. Being wealthy is not always satisfying.
