      Hello John!
      I enjoyed reading your story. I remember having read the beginning part, as a response to 'Treasure.' Nice developing story and much more to come.
      Reminds me of some of the mystery books, which I have enjoyed reading in my younger days.
      I have always liked adventures and mysteries, and found your story quite engaging. Looking forward to the next part.
      Thank you for sharing.
      Thank you Rosina for sharing this in the forum.

    John, your story is very interesting and engaging. I enjoyed reading it and looking forward to the next part. I'm sure it'll be equally interesting. smile

    I'm just curious about one thing; it's a little suspicious, you know. You said in your story: I poured a glass of water and popped a couple of paracetamol

    I'm just wondering how many grams of paracetamol in total big_smile wink

    Jokes apart, I really enjoyed your story. Please give us another dose as soon as possible smile

    Thank you very much, Rosina, for sharing the link to John's hub and for starting this discussion.

    Happy Sunday and Blessings to both of you! smile

      Hello Misbah,
      It is good that the story is keeping you engaged. Trust you to worry about how many grams of paracetamol…2x 500mg, that’s 1000 total haha. I think it is micrograms. The next part shouldn’t be too far away. Blessings

        Oh! 1000 milligrams, it's fine then. By the way, just for general information, can you easily get 1000 mg (1 gram) paracetamol from pharmacies in Australia? We can't get it without a prescription in Spain, but we can easily get it in Pakistan. You know the maximum amount of paracetamol for adults is 1 gram (1000 mg) per dose and 4 grams (4000 mg) per day. More than that is considered drug abuse, so pharmacists in Spain do not sell it without a prescription. smile

          Yes, can freely get it without a prescription even though we have the same recommended daily dosage. 2 tablets, no more than four times per day.
          We can even buy it from the Supermarket.

    The stage is set for a rousing, adventurous story to follow.  All the basic elements of an outstanding introduction are here, leading the reader to the only conclusion possible:  I MUST HAVE MORE!!!!!

      That means a lot coming from you, Bill. If the story managed to capture your attention and want more I am on the right path. Hopefully, I can make the ending a satisfying one.

    I just woke up from a nice sleep & grabbed my phone.

    I was so happy to see your story & was in a hurry to read it. 

    I quickly feed those kitties who are pretending to be starved because I slept in a bit late, and retreat to the bedroom with a Gatorade in hand.

    I'm sitting in my rocking chair ready to read your story.

    The excitement is killing me...I've waited so long for this moment.

    It's has me spellbound.

    I hang on to each word.

    He's just been told about treasures on the island & now there's no stopping his curiosity.

    He plans on finding himself a treasure.  Not just any treasure, but the one from Captain Jack

    I'm all ready to read the next page....but it says to be continued.

    You've done it to me again...
    Great work. 

    It takes alot to keep my interest & it's stoked.

    Your descriptions were fantastic.   I could picture the little hut like bar with the palm trees and lights.

    Your muse is on a roll...
    So,  Until next time...

    Have a great week.

      Thanks for the great comment, Brenda. It is great to read that someone is so excited to read something I wrote.
      Glad you gave those starving kitties a feed first though lol.
      I was really hoping my descriptions would help bring the scenes to life..I’m doing my best.
      Sorry to leave you on the edge of your seat. I have been watching some mystery thriller series on Netflix based on Harlen Coben books, and each episode does that every time. More to come soon, can’t promise it will be the ending though.

        Thanks John
        I'll be waiting...and then waiting again..until I reach the end of your story....whenever that might be.
        As they can't rush a good thing.
