The Map.

Once Ducky and Pembleton made sure the poor monkey was being taken care of, they returned to their investigation of the map.

“Where is this map leading us?” Pembleton asked.

“Obviously to the giant red ‘X’!” Ducky answered.

“But where do we start?” Pembleton asked.

“I don’t know. I don’t have all the answers! Wait, why does this map feel crusty?”

“Wait, just one minute.” Pembleton said. Pembleton sniffed the map and his eyes grew big. Ducky knew he was on to something. His super sniffer was never wrong. Pembleton walked over to the table and grabbed a lemon. Now Ducky was just confused. Why did he need a lemon?  Then Pembleton squirted the lemon juice over the crusty area and held it over a candle. Soon a secret message appeared in light brown letter.

“How did you know how to do that?” Ducky asked.

“It’s simple science, you see…” Ducky quickly cut Pembton off.

“You can tell us later. Do you know what this ancient scribble means?” Ducky asked.

“No, but I know someone who does.” Pembleton said. He quickly grabbed his emergency phone and took a picture. “Multilingual Mole will know. He is a professor of ancient texts.” Shortly after sending, Pembleton received a text message back with the translation: TO UNCOVER THE MYSTERY OF THE DESERT SANDS, ONE MUST THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE, AS BEARISTOTLE ONCE DID.

“Huh?” Ducky said as he scratched his head.

To be continued…

"Why is this map crusty?"

“Why is this map crusty?”
