“Juliet- is that another ship I see?” I asked with a sigh.
“Yes, it is! Captain, another ship coming in dead ahead!” Juliet shouted.
“Thank you, Jules I can see that.” Captain McGovern replied. She still sounded so upset. A little while later the ship pulled up right next to ours! I heard a voice cry out:
“Ahoy thar! Prepare to be boarded!” I felt so scared. Pirates were about to board our ship!
“Hello, Captain Elinor McGovern. Long time no see.” A lady who appeared to be the captain said. How did she know Captain McGovern?
“Amelia, Rosa- search the ship! You know what to look for…” the Lady ordered.
“Alright, Elena- say your peace and be on your way. You won’t find anything to take with you today.” Captain McGovern said.
“I don’t have much to say, but what I am going to say I’m sure you already know. Isn’t that right- sister?” Captain Elena said. I gasped- “Did she just say, sister?” I thought to myself.
“Quite the contrary, Elena- I have no idea what you have to say.” Captain Elinor responded.
“I find that quite surprising, dearie. Well, I’ll get to the point. I need the key to the chest. Now we can do this the easy way or the hard the way. Which one is it gonna be?” Captain Elena asked. I could definitely tell they were sisters. They were both so mysterious!
“What chest would that be?” Captain Elinor asked.
“What key? They key that opens our parent’s treasure chest that’s what key!” Captain Elena said.
“Ah, yes! Well, I think that I will hold on to it, for I do believe that I will be finding the chest first. And even if I don’t- I will get it.” Captain Elinor replied.
“The will states that whoever finds or gets to the chest first- meaning you and me- will keep it! And if the loser tries to take it away their title will be taken from them! And, I do know you pay heed to all rules, Elinor.” Captain Elena said.
“You listen hear, Elena! I will get to the chest first and if I don’t I will do everything in my power to make sure you never do! Now get off of my ship!!” Captain Elinor demanded. All of my questions that had been spinning around in my head were finally getting answered!
“Very well, but let me assure you one thing. I will have that treasure chest no matter what! And also, just one question- why don’t you want me to have that chest?” Captain Elena asked.
“I could ask you the same question, Elena.” Captain Elinor replied.
“Yes, but you seem angry with me- why?” Captain Elena asked.
“I’m angry with you and your wicked ways. I know what you’ll do with the treasure, Elena. You’ll use it to buy everything you desire- even make you mayor of our hometown! And when you are, you will make our town bankrupt because you’ll raise the taxes sky high and believe me, Elena I will not stand by and watch that happen!!” Captain Elinor explained.
“Very well! I’ll have you banished from the town when I’m mayor and you won’t have to watch!” Captain Elena said.
“Just one question before I go, Elinor- who is that young lady?” Captain Elena asked.
I gasped! What would happen to me if she found out I had the key?
“She’s nobody! Just a young woman from Aztec who wanted a little adventure that’s all.” Captain Elinor quickly expalined.
“Amelia, Rosa! Have you found anything?” Captain Elena asked.
“No, Captain! There’s a journal here, though. Want me to read some of it?” Amelia replied.
“Of course!” Captain Elena said.
“Dear Diary, Today I left my home and all that was familiar to go on a treasure hunt with some pirates. This never would’ve happened if I hadn’t found something that they needed- the key to unlock the chest!” Amelia read.
“Oh, no.” I said under my breath.
“Victoria, what have you done?” Juliet asked me.
“Oh, I see! Now my so called sister is lying to me, so I can’t get my hands on our parent’s treasure! You are not going to get away with this, Elinor!!” Captain Elena said.
“Amelia, Rosa- we’re leaving now!” Captain Elena called over her shoulder.
“Oh, and, girls-” Captain Elena began, “Make room on my ship for a fourth addition to our party. We’re taking Victoria with us- and the key!”
