Treasures Galore

CCC #52

“Seventy-three, seventy-four, seventy-five.  Damn.”

“What’s wrong?” Danielle asked.  “Isn’t it right?”

“I think so,” Tammy replied. “But it also seems wrong, somehow.”

“What do you mean?”

“Well when we started we were only one step off when we came to the stream.  Then we compensated and the old well was just where it was supposed to be.”

“Yeah, so what’s the problem.”

“The map indicates that we should have entered the woods after three hundred paces. Which we did, and the huge chestnut was in the right place too.  But this last instruction says that the treasure is at the base of the forked tree.  And seventy-five paces has brought us here, in the middle of a five of them.  Even if we start with the closest, we will be digging all day,” Tammy explained.

“That won’t do. My mum said I needed to be home before six.”

“Mine too.”
