2736. The curse|
© Bruce Goodman 26 May 2023
A rumour had circulated for years. Centuries ago a rich king had died and was buried in a secret cave on an isolated island. Apparently he was buried with thousands and thousands of gold coins.
There was a scary addendum to the story; anyone who tried to find the secret cave would be cursed.
I lie in a cave with gravel and stones.
A curse on the one who seeks my bones.
Kenneth and Graeme were fourteen years old. They didn’t believe in curses, but they did believe the story of the gold coins. They got in a boat and rowed to the island.
After several hours searching they began the trip home. Their boat sank. They drowned. We will never know if they found anything.
