Follow The North Star

“We have been following the North Star in the sky just like the map indicated, but we can’t seem to find the treasure. Are you sure the people you stole it from were telling the truth?” said an exhausted Rebecca.“I didn’t have time to ask for directions after I buried that knife in his chest,” answered Robert.The couple decided to rest for a few hours before continuing their search for the pirate’s skull that was lined with teeth made of pure gold in its mouth and two diamonds in the eye sockets as the hundred year old legend went. As they closed their eyes they heard a voice in the wind, “Go south, use the compass under the rock beneath you.”“I found the compass Becky, but it’s pointing south? Isn’t it suppose to point north because of the gravitational pull or something like that?” said Robert in a quivering voice.In the morning they found some more clues. When they rested in the middle of the very hot day a wind blew from the south and they heard the strange voice say, “You will find what you seek for, tonight. Go south!”True to the strange voice and the compass direction they came upon an opened grave in the sand. They looked inside and then jumped down to retrieve their spoiled treasure as the southern wind blew right over the grave.A sand storm followed and buried them alive with the exception of their exposed heads. The ocean waves brought creatures that ate the flesh during the night and in the morning two skulls stuck out from the sand on the beach. A lone beach patrolman in a jeep spotted them as he spoke in a low voice, “Another two suckers looking for that buried treasure. This makes ten for this year!” He picked up the compass that was nearby and added, “I lost you last year. Wait a minute, it’s working just fine, it points north but never did before!”The south wind blew and whispered in his ear, “Thank you for lending me your compass!”
