        Wow John, you certainly know how to tell a story. Sounds like an Indiana Jones tale.

          Hi Linda, thank you for reading the story.  Wonder if they need a screen-writer for any future Indiana Jones movies lol. Thank you.

    Wow…. What a beautiful ending, John. I enjoyed all the three parts of this story. I enjoyed this part of the story very much “The doubloon scored a direct hit……. “POP!” and his eyeball exploded”. I read it twice and tried to imagine the scene. I loved it. Thank you so much for sharing. smile

    Thank you so much, Pamela, for creating this forum discussion.

    Have a great day and keep smiling

      This was an awesome final chapter with a great ending. I went through the other parts as well to revive my memory. It made me smile that the main character couldn't get hold of the cursed treasure but had a picture of it to tell the tale to others. Yes, it was a fitting end to the story. I appreciate it very much. Thanks for the entertainment in the lovely afternoon here, John.

        Hi Rosina, I am happy that you enjoyed this story. I wasn't sure how it would end as I never planned the story, I just wrote as ideas came to me. It is great that it entertained you and that you were happy with the way it ended. Take care.

          Yay, I got your comment this time, Misbah. I don't know why it didn't show up before. I didn't know why you mentioned the cookie monster. I thought maybe the link wasn't working. I am glad you enjoyed all three parts, especially the gory bit lol. Thanks again, my friend smile Blessings to you.

    A rousing thriller with a great ending. Who could ask for more? Loved the story. Poetry or short story, you bridge the gap effortlessly.  Truly a talented writer/poet, and a pleasure to have read lo these many years.

      Bill, you don’t know how much I appreciate your feedback, and a comment like that does a lot for my confidence in writing short fiction. I have been trying my hand at it more often lately, so practicing may not make perfect but it does help one improve. As I have said to others, I am very relieved the ending worked out well. That was what I was most worried about.

    John
    I finally got to read your conclusion.

    I must say it grabs your attention.
    Very descriptive from the beginning to the end.

    Sometimes it's best to get the hell out of dodge and live your life.

    What a curse.  I can only imagine what else his fate met up with when he decided to be greedy.

    Great job on this one.  I'll post a link to the word prompt article.
