Bearistotle’s Treasure.

They slowly entered the room, not knowing what to expect. On the ceiling there was an colorful mosaic depicting a galaxy and hundreds of stars. It was so beautiful, they almost forgot why they were there. At the top of the ceiling there was an oculus letting in a beam of light, shining down onto a pedestal in the center of the room.

“What is this? A BOOK! We came all this way for a stinking BOOK!?!” Ducky shouted as he looked at the pedestal.

“Wait a second! Ducky. Books can be very valuable treasures. I need to examine it.” Multilingual Mole said as he and Pembleton took a closer look.

“What are all those pots for Ducky?” Ted asked.

“Maybe those are filled with treasure.” Blizzard added.

“Good thinking.” Ducky said as he waddled over and opened one of the lids. “Oh My Goodness! GOLD! The tasty kind.”  Ducky dipped his wing into the pot of honey, just for a taste. “Oh, this is the good stuff.”

“Wait Ducky!” Pembleton shouted, but it was too late. Ducky had already dived in.

“This book, isn’t just any book.” Multilingual Mole explained. “It is Bearistotle’s mother’s famous recipe book.” Ted and Blizzard ‘Oooed’ and ‘Aaaawed’ as Multilingual Mole named delicious recipe, after recipe.  He then continued, “She made the best baklava in all the land, but her recipes were believed to have been lost in the great fires of Alexandria.” At this point, Multilingual Mole was giddy with excitement, as was Pembleton and the little guys. “This find is not only important for history and prosperity, but also the good of animal kinds tummies.”

As Multilingual Mole and Pembleton thumbed through other famous and delicious recipes Ducky, who had finally gotten unstuck from the honey pot came over and asked, “So what’s this your looking at!” Everyone turned to Ducky and gave him the stink eye.

“Weren’t you listening?” Pembleton asked.

“Actually, it’s a little hard to hear. I have honey in my ears.” Ducky replied.

Once they had examined the treasure. They made preparations to return to the nearest city. There they reported the cat pirates to the authorities and told them their location. Then Multilingual Mole and Pembleton held a press conference, announcing they had uncovered the Mystery of the Desert Sands. Amanda Panda and Penelope Penguin, donated their pendents to a local museum and in appreciation of their gift, the museum had two replicas made for the girls. Cornelius questioned the female camel that had been working with the cat pirates and was relieved to find out she had no idea what they were up to. Before handing the recipe book over to the museum for safe keeping, Ducky and the gang made a batch of Mama Bearistotle’s baklava! It was so good, they had to make another.

The End!
