LOST IN TIME

THE BOOK

It all started a long time ago. There were four of us at that time, all with the dream of finding the lost Ancient caverns at the North Pole. We all knew it sounded crazy, but I had seen this ancient Book which told a story about these Caverns at the North Pole. I had only read a small part of the Book at that time. It told a Story about these Caverns and a Special Race of beings that lived there and there secret Technology that is far beyond your dreams.

First of all, we had to obtain that Book, which could be hard because it was at a Professor's House in his private collection. I had seen it when I had visited him. To ask about our study's and which Book's would we need for the research. That's when I found the Ancient Book, and I had to put it down quickly because I heard the Professor coming back to the room.

So now we have to plan a way of getting the Book because I don't think the Professor will give it to us.

Well, after a lot of talking, we decided the only way was to break in and take it, we did not want to steal it, but it was the best way to get the Book. Because if we just asked him for it, there would be lots of questions, and most of them, we would not be able to answer at that time, and even if we could he still might not give us the Book. Now to plan the Big break in ( well it was to us ) as we have not done anything like this before.

We had planned to do it on a Friday, as we knew he would be teaching that day, so we were ready for the break-in. Then the Adventure.

Well, the day had come, yep we were all nervous as hell, we did not want to get caught doing this, but we had to do it and fast because he would be gone only for a short time. So off we go, we found the back door still open, that was lucky.  To be on the safe side, I will call out just in case the Professor has not left. ( hello anyone there, Professor, are you home it's Richard, I wish to ask you something about the research)It sounds like no one is home, let's go but take our time just in case. John asked which way to the Professors private room. It upstairs, but we will call out again only in case the Professor is up there, Good Idea Sam commented,( are you there Professor), still no answer. Okay, Guy's up we go, we need to find it fast as we don't want to stay in here too long. We got to the room only to find the Book was not where it was before. We will need to split up and search, but don't make a mess, we don't want the Professor to know someone has been in his home. We had been looking for the Book for almost thirty minutes now, Ho well it's not here anymore Luke commented and just as he said that, John cry's out got it. Let have a look, yes that's it, okay we have to get out fast, The Professor will be back soon before we leave check that's it all neat and tidy. All done Good let's get out of here, we will need to check and make sure no one sees us leave. When we get outside, we split up, and all meet back at the House, good Idea Luke, be careful everyone, it's all clear, let's go and fast. As Sam and I were heading back home we felt that someone was following us, we kept looking over our shoulders but could not see anyone behind us, my nerves are on edge mate how's yours, mine too Sam replied, and I am sure someone is following us, but I can't see anyone can you, Know I replied.

Well, we are back at the House, at last, John and Luke started to tell us, they had to keep hiding. As there were two other persons in front of them, that kept turning around as if they were looking for someone, and no matter where we went, I could still see them and thought. We will be spotted soon, which way did you go Because we had two people following us, John explained the direction they went, Sam commented hold on that's the same way we went. We just looked at each other and started laughing, all saying at the same time you mean that was you, and you thought we were, yes we did. Glad it was you, then someone else, okay now let's settle down and have a look at the Book, let make some Coffee first, then into it, we will need to take some notes as well okay that sounds good Luke replied I'll get the pads and pens. It was getting exciting now as we have a lot of working out to do and planning the trip. We still had to be careful. We would need somewhere else to stay as it would be too dangerous for us to stay in the dorms on the school's grounds.

I told them we should be safe for at least two day's, then we will have to leave, or we could get found out, and we don't want that do we. John agreed with what I said. Luke asked, have I  done this before, No mate just being careful.

We all stayed up very late that night, trying to understand what we could from the Book, some of it I wished I could have asked the Professor but we can't.  All of a sudden Sam yelled out, I've got it, we all looked at him thinking what the hell is he talking about. Well go on I said what have you got, Sam replied my dad has an old Farm House in the Country, we could all stay there, as it's empty and no one goes there anymore, and it's got everything there we need. We thought that sounded good, how far away is it mate it's about twenty miles out, well that sounds good any shops on the way as we will need to pick up some supplies, yep just down the road there's a store it's only two miles from the Farmhouse. Perfect, so that's it we have a place.

Ready to see what befalls this band of reluctant thieves. They may regret this quest in the end.

You have piqued my interest to read on. But just a thought, watch your apostrophes and starting too many paragraphs with "Well,...."

THE FARM HOUSE

The day was here time to go, mates, make sure we have everything we need to take, as we can't come back again for it, last quick look around and yep we are ready, have to be careful no one sees us leaving. Quickly load everything in the car, and let's get out of here before someone sees us. Okay baby startup for us, now come on, okay good girl, let go, hope you know the way, Sam, I do mate keep going down this road then I'll let you know when to turn, okay mate were on our way now.

It was getting dark when we left, so that means we will be driving in the Country at night so I hope Sam knows his way, Okay better fill the car up with fuel, we don't want to run out Luke okay Richard will do and better get a drink, sounds good mate. Sam was doing well remembering the way there, seems he has not been there for about three years, it was starting to get a little colder out in the Country, and our heater did not work, luke needed a cloth to keep whipping the windscreen, he asked us to stop all the heavy breathing, then laughs. Well, the Farmhouse is just down that track Luke okay mate, better slow down as there are potholes everywhere okay, at one time my head almost went through the roof, awch that was a deep one mate sure was hope you did not dent the roof hahaha. Look there's the Farmhouse pull up over there, okay will do mate.  Just as we pulled up it started to rain, just our luck John said, now I'll get wet, don't complain, mate, we will all get wet, the faster we get in there, the better it will be. Take what we need now and get the rest later, a quick dash to the House. Where are the Keys, should be over here yes got it, good it's getting colder now and we are wet, let get inside and warm up, look there's the fire I'll make it up now as it was getting very Cold. John got some of the food out and started to cook us all a meal, fortunate for us he was an excellent cook, then time to get some sleep, we all knew it would be hard to sleep, but we had to as there's was No turning back now so good night all each one of us called out.

The Morning came very quickly, but we managed to get some sleep, so that was good as we needed clear heads to study the Book, lucky Sam had his Laptop because we needed to check up on a few things to help us understand some of the old words in the writing.

Fortunate for us we had been saving up for a trip, so we had quite a bit of Money behind us because we would need more Equipment and hopefully when we get there, we will be able to hire some as well. It took us about two weeks to understand most of the Ancient Book.there was a lot we need to understand. It was getting closer to the time to pack up and start the Journey of a lifetime. We still had a few days to go, as we all know time goes fast, and that what it did, time to head off to the Airport, so we packed up only what we would need, making sure we have all our note's and the Book with us.
